Show cars old and new were on display Sunday, September 5, along Main Street in downtown Hawkesbury. The Hawkesbury Auto Club’s Auto Expo returned.  

Unfortunately, the weather was a bit on the wet side, but there was a steady stream of spectators along the street admiring the chrome and steel. Vehicles on display were from all over Québec and Ontario, and most major makes and models were represented. Fortunately, the rain looked like it was rolling right off most vehicles because of the wax jobs their owners had done ahead of time.

A 1962 Ford Falcon Ranchero. The Ranchero car-truck combination was originally part of the Falcon lineup, which also included the Econoline van. The Ranchero was eventually a separate model by the late 1960s and through the 1970s. Movie fans may remember seeing a Ranchero drive away with the compacted remains of Mr. Solo in the James Bond film Goldfinger. Photo: James Morgan
