April Meeting – Nostalgia Night!

The April general membership meeting was held on the evening of the 20th at Jim Ratsoy’s Garage in Richmond. Everyone really enjoyed looking at Jim’s wonderful collection of over 90 beautifully restored antique and special interest vehicles. Those of us who grew up in North America in the ‘50’s and ‘60’s all recognized personal favourites from our youth. Those who grew up on other continents gained a greater appreciation for the origins of the term “Detroit Iron”! The Museum is highly recommended. Check out Jim’s web site: (http://www.grandpasoldcars.com/) for more information on their schedule and the cars themselves.

At the meeting, Club members recognized the impact that the new higher BC Ferries rates are having on members who have to use a ferry to get their race cars to Mission. A $75 per round trip subsidy was approved, which will hopefully be of some help.

Our guest speaker, Nigel Matthews, gave us an overview of the Hagerty Collector Car Insurance Company’s expansion into Canada, including their very interesting race car insurance plan.
