If you’re a classic car buff and owner, the reality is that you should also be a classic car insurance buff too. That often includes going to car shows like at Radium Hot Springs this past weekend on September 16-17, 2016.
The TSG team was in attendance along with members of Legends Collector Vehicle Insurance at the car show in BC this past weekend – one of many tailored insurance products offered by Team TSG.
As fellow enthusiasts, we know our custom built cars and how to insure them. Our TSG Team developed the Legends Collector Vehicle Insurance package specifically to protect classic cars, exclusively in Alberta, including spare parts and glass to keep your car running smoothly and looking great. Legends Insurance also covers emergency services and towing to your residence so you can ‘Show’ off your classic car without worry.
The Columbia Valley Classics car club was started in Radium Hot Spring in 1989. The first year the car show was held, there were 75 cars, now 27 years later there are over 1000 vehicles. Registration started Friday night, September 16, from 7 till 9 pm at the Radium Seniors Hall, as well as Saturday morning at the car show. Registration was $25 and you could pay at the gate.
Saturday started at 7 am with a pancake breakfast at the Radium Seniors Hall hosted by the Radium Fire Department – delicious and a gracious thank you to all involved. The Show and Shine ran from 10 am until 4 pm at the Springs Golf Course driving range with the Blues Brothers Too providing the entertainment from 11 am until 4 pm. From noon until 4 pm it was Rockin’ on Main, the market opened, and Dos Equis was at the Visitor Information Centre from 2 until 4 pm.
At 4 pm was the Cruise to Invermere. This was not a Car Club sanctioned event so participants were cautioned – follow traffic control and know that there will be a police presence with zero tolerance. After the cruise, it was time to have some “fun like the old days” at the Invermere Curling Club with a best dressed contest of the finest 50/60s fashions and a free bus service between Radium and Invermere and back for the dance was provided. The Radium Hot Springs folks know how to host a good time – hope to see you here next year.
