Cape Dorset International Auto Show

My Dad and I both own antique cars. His is a '57 Chev Belair and mine is a '63 Plymouth Savoy and one thing we both did in the summer was go to car shows every weekend unless it interfered with watching the Nascar races. Neither one of us has driven our old cars in two years because we have been working outside of New Brunswick. One of the shows that both of us always attended is the Moncton International Auto Show in Moncton, NB. So Monday night we were down at the land bridge to our neighbouring island and you have to go through the metal waste site to get to it. Part of the metal waste site are all the vehicles that have been disposed off. Below is some pictures of vehicles in the metal waste site in honor of the Moncton International Auto Show that is happening in New Brunswick.



The first school bus ever in Cape Dorset with one of the first water delivery trucks in the community below it.



Old Van - Just need to paint some flowers on it.
Ford half ton extended cab looked to be from the 80's


Just look at this old girl. Not sure what it is but it may be for travelling on the snow. Can't remember the correct name for it.
Old "the Bay" delivery truck. I think"the Bay" is now the "Co-op". It has a boat on top of it and the remains of a tractor sandwiched between it and an ugly green truck.


There was another boat tucked in behind the others. This photo was taken through the frame of a mobile home.

and all we get at our metal waste is oven range and dishwashers, your waste site up there is definitely more interesting!

Old yellow vehicle is a bombardier!

Karyn said...

Uhh...I think...not sure about the big front wheels...

That is what confused me to Karyn. I wonder if they are just temps for moving in the summer in place of the tracks. Just guessing but Bombardier is who I was thinking of. Thanks.

Matthew and Michele said...

Well Karyn I think I can now confirm that you are correct. Michele and I were down to the land bridge and passed through the metal dump and I had a closer look. It is the front of the Bombardier that is sticking out and the wheels on the front can be interchanged with skies. The tracks are at the back. Mystery solved. Thanks
