Golden Ears Chapter
Valentine's Run - February 17th, 2013
|Posted by angholbrook on February 17, 2013 at 6:25 PM|
It was a beautiful morning when 19 vehicles showed up at A&W for breakfast and social time before heading out on our Valentine's Run. It was nice to see some potential members in attendance, and also some members out that we don't see very often. Judy gave everyone a beautiful cupcake as Doug handed out the directions of our tour.
First stop was B & N Hot Rod and Fabrication in Maple Ridge. B & N Hotrod is a family run business that began with Bill Lemon (the president) back in May 1999. Bill's son, Neil, was our host, he showed us around and told us about their family history and a little about each vehicle in his shop. You can read about them at http://www.hotrodparts.ca/About-Us.page. Today we saw a 27 Willys and a 90 Lamborgini - one extreme to the other! We were invited upstairs to the Upholstery shop where we oohed and aahed over Doug's beautiful 38 Ford which was in for installation of upholstery. This was also a coffee and donut stop - as if we need more donuts!!
After the tour, we took a leisurely drive down the old Dewdney Trunk Road over the dam and onwards to Mission. Our next stop was the home of Richard and Marlene. They showed us their beautiful home and garage with its space for 5 full size vehicles, and the wood-work shop in the back.
Our last stop was the Mission Springs pub for lunch and conversation - oh and a chocolate heart!

Thank you to Doug & Judy for organizing this event and also for finding us some fantastic weather!
