As the years tick past, those who know what a rumble seat is diminishes. Plows pulled by horses? Some wonder if that ever actually happened.
Rediscover the history of farming and cars together at Model A Sunday on June 7 at the BC Farm Museum at 9131 King St. in Fort Langley from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The museum houses the provinceâ€™s largest collection of agricultural and pioneer artifacts. From the kitchen to the fields, getting around to getting it done, there is no more diverse illustration of how B.C.â€™s pioneers used to manage their days and their lives.
Coupled with that collection on Sunday will be cars from 1932 and older lining King Street, according to Model A Sunday organizers Mike McVay and Noel Cleveland.
â€œIf itâ€™s a nice day, weâ€™re going to get a lot of people,â€ said McVay.
Last year was a well attended event with about 55 cars and approximately 250 visitors.
â€œWeâ€™re hoping for some real antique cars,â€ McVay added, noting that anything from 1932 and older is welcome to enter in the show.
â€œBring it on down,â€ he said, including those cars that have been modified or turned into hotrods.
Itâ€™s the 27th year for the show, and Cleveland noted itâ€™s an important event because itâ€™s one of the few focused on the older cars.
â€œWe try and attract people to come and see it [Model A Sunday] and see the museum,â€ Cleveland said.
â€œWe use the whole street, sometimes both sides,â€ he added.
This year, organizers are hoping to see members of the steam car club join in and expect cars as old as 1910s and 1912s to be on display.
â€œThereâ€™s always a few hotrods,â€ commented Cleveland.
There will be hamburgers and smokies for sale by the Fort Langley Lions club.
Clevelandâ€™s 1931 Ford slant window wonâ€™t be at the show, but McVay will have his 1928 Pontiac on site. â€œWeâ€™re open to all makes and models,â€ he said. â€œSo long as itâ€™s pre-1932.â€
McVay will also be at the Pontiac show to be held at the Coast Hotel and Cascades Casino parking lot on Sunday, June 14.
