    Not really a true spotters thread since these cars were only display at a car show, but appropriate to show here anyways.

    Typically, the Classic & Collector car show held biannually at the Tradex Convention Centre in Abbottsford attracts hot-rods, muscle cars and domestic classics and I go through it pretty quickly, looking over those for my "hidden" favorites and this one was pretty good. I spotted these:

    An '85 Lambo Jalpa! A rare car and here was one at the show. Really nice original shape. Naturally, you can overhear the hicks walking up to the car "Hey a Maserati!"... Ugghhh.

    You know James, I hadn't paid attention to the date of the race. Usually it happens around the end of May. ALL of the car clubs get plenty of info about this event, so shortly, I will find out the details. When I do, I'll pass it along.

    I forgot, the race is always held at the track in Mission (River's Edge).
