Unique vehicle are always able to turn heads, whether it be a classic Model T or some American muscle from the golden era of the 1960s.

With summer approaching, Cranbrook auto enthusiasts will get the chance to see some vehicles that maybe aren’t too well known in North America, as a group of owners of strictly british-made cars will be coming through the Key City.

The Old English Car Club of B.C., with a Kootenay branch based in Cranbrook, will be touring through the province and into Alberta, before coming through the city on June 12, with a car show at the Superstore parking lot from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

While free for the public, there will be cans set up in front of the dozen or so vehicles for anyone to donate. Donations raised will be matched by Superstore and distributed to the President’s Choice Children’s Charity and the local SPCA.

The cars featured in the show will be strictly British-made, which could include manufacturers such as Triumph Motor Company, Rolls Royce, and Jaguar.
