Bay Wheels a success

The Compass - - CLASSIFIED -

The 2012 Bay Wheels Car Show, spon­sored by the Prince of Wales L.O.L. No. 26 in Cupids, was deemed one of the more suc­cess­fuls in the past 25 years by or­ga­nizer Harold Ak­er­man. The pop­u­lar Bay Roberts based show pushed over 2,400 peo­ple through its gates at the Bay Arena, June 2-3. Fea­tur­ing 51 cars from var­i­ous eras, the show thrilled gear­heads of all ages. Ak­er­man said the show has raised over $100,000 for char­i­ties like VOCM Cares and Ron­ald McDon­ald House over the years. The amount of money made at this year’s event is still un­known.

Mo­tor en­thu­si­asts take in the sights at the Bay Wheels car show.

Some of the world’s clas­sic cars from as early back as the 1930s were on dis­play, in­clud­ing this 1970 Ply­mouth Su­per­bird, owned by Randy Mor­gan.

Const. John Clarke of the Trin­ity Con­cep­tion District RCMP got be­hind the wheel of this 1961 Mer­cury Mon­tery, a RCMP com­mu­nity polic­ing car since 2004. The car, as well as the RCMP’s com­mu­nity pro­gram, were on dis­play at Bay Wheels.
