Vintage cars make up Caledon Day celebrations
There was lots to attract crowds to the Town Hall campus in Caledon for Caledon Day June 13, including the usual assortment of vintage cars in the Caledon Cruisers Show.
Doug Ritchie of Mississauga was showing this 1975 Dodge Dart, which he has owned 11 years and which he restored himself. He said he bought it from a man, who let it sit “in his driveway for 20 years.”
These interesting cars are replicas of 1967 Shelby Cobras. The one on the left was shown by Adrian Dalgleish of Palgrave. He said he’s had it 25 years. The other belongs to Jim Davidson of Oakville and he’s had it 27 years. Both cars have travelled extensively, including to Prince Edward Island, Thunder Bay, St. Louis and Cape Cod.
Todd Saunders of Bolton and his son Tan, 10, were on hand with this 1970 Dodge Challenger convertible. He’s owned it for five years.
Caledon resident Hugh Metcalfe drove his 1923 Model T Rat Rod to the show. He’s had it for about four years and did a lot of restoration work on it. He said it’s “great” on gas, with a six-cylinder engine. It only weighs about 900 pounds.
Doug Dillon came from Willowdale with this 1961 MGA 1600 Roadster. He’s had it for 21 years, and spent about 10 of them restoring it.
Robert and Sue Hogarth of Sandhill had two cars to show. He was showing a 1964 Ford Galaxy XL which he bought a month ago, while she had a 1984 Chrysler LeBaron Town and Country.
