A Car Show Extravaganza Hits B.C. | Automotive Training Centre
July 13, 2012
This weekend is one of the busiest of the year for local car shows in and around the Vancouver and Surrey areas. In other words, it’s like Christmas in July.
For those of you who are studying to be an Auto Body Technician, car shows are a great opportunity to talk one-on-one with car enthusiasts who have spent a lot of time and money modifying the mechanics and body of their cars. Likewise, those pursuing Auto Body Paint Careers can expect to see some pretty outrageous paint jobs out there, so be sure to check out what people have been up to.
Regardless of which automotive training program you are enrolled in, there’s no doubt that any ATC student would get a thrill from seeing dozens (if not hundreds!) of cars spread out in one location. Car shows are a great way to meet people who are as passionate about cars as we all are, and also to expose yourself to the automotive techniques and trends that people are following.
Below is a list of some of the car shows being held this weekend. If you have a car you want to show off, or if you just want to have a look around and meet other car fanatics, then you should definitely try to take some out to drop in on at least one of the shows. The forecast is calling for a chance of isolated showers, but there’ll be plenty of hoods around for you to hide under. Enjoy!
