Fortin's annual Village
Classic a stunning travelling road show of vintage vehicles that helped

cars. Old toys from mods to rods. They're the finest vintage vehicles in the Fraser

cars speak for themselves.
mopars with wide meats put together by top gun mechanics and body

of the originals are long gone now but these are what you call
survivors of a bygone era. Long hoods hiding sparkling engines.
This is what was waiting for those who took the time out to show
