Ray Noseworthy of Carbonear says, "it's the bug that gets ya." At least that's why he says he has developed an interest in resoring old Volkswagen Beetles, also known as bugs. This red 1972 Beetle was the first Ray built from the ground up. He began this restoration project 12 years ago, and it took him seven years to complete it.

This green 1957 Volkswagen Beetle Oval also belongs to Ray Noseworthy of Carbonear, but not for too long. Young Reese Quinlan (right) is Ray's granddaughter. She is not yet five years old, but the car is hers when she starts driving. Her friend Hailey Rossiter spent the afternoon July 5 playing with Reese around the car.

Since Vince Clark was a child, he wanted a 1972 Ford Grand Torino Sport. Eight years ago, that dream came true for the RCMP officer from Carbonear, when he purchased this beauty. "It's the same year as me," Clark laughed.

Many classic car buffs took part in the show this year, but few as enthusiastic as Lavina Saunders (left), David Saunders (centre) and Bob Dawe. The group, who became frends through their love of cars, came from St. John's and Conception Bay South to take part in the event. Lavina is the owner of an off-white 1936 Dodge Coupe, David owns a nassau blue 1956 Chevy Bel Air and Bob brought along his red 1941 Willys Coupe. Each has owned their vehicle for four years.

It was a lineup of Fords down the centre of Paddy's Garden July 5 during the CBN Lgendary Car Club Show N' Shine. Mustangs largely outnumbered the single Grand Torino, but the whole group received quite a bit of attention during the Saturday show. Some of the vehicles were split up on Sunday, June 6.

Ronnie Meaney (right) brought his daughter Shaye to the car show to display his 1984 Chevy truck. Ronnie just had the truck clearcoated, but kept the rustic look. Shaye said it was her favourite vehicle at the show. The Meaney's are from Torbay.

In its 18th year, the CBN Legendary Car Club's Show N' Shine event drew a large crowd to Carbonear's Paddy's Garden.

It was an exciting two day event, July 5 and 6, that saw hundreds of visitors and dozens of participants take part in an outdoor showcase of cars and trucks from the past nine decades.

Many of those in attendance were families, with children, parents and gradparents coming together to share their love for cars, and some just curious to see what vehicles would be present this year.

Car owners also brought along their families, with many children showing a lot of enthusiasm for the vehicles, with some trying to compete against the others with a game of, "Who's car is better?"

Although there was some fear of bad weather, it held off for the event to end on a high note with some prestigious awards being handed out.


The following are the award winners from the event:

• Long Distance award — Brendan McHugh from Placentia, 1956 Ford Fairlane;
