Ontario is car country! They love their classic cars here and we see proud owners of vintage cars cruising through the country side in their well-maintained rides all the time. During the summer there is a classic car show in some town at almost every weekend. The Merrickville car show is one of the biggest in Ontario, with over 1000 registered cars, trucks, and hot rods, one tractor and even one pimped out school bus! It feels as if time stood still here is the old town of Merrickville as you zig zag through the vintage cars lining the Rideau Canal.

That's so fun! My dad and grandfather had a lot of vintage cars when I was growing up (a 22 model T, reo, among others) and so I've always had a soft spot for old cars :)

Hi Faith, there's just something romantic about vintage cars! I love that they are still valued so much in North America and that there are all these car shows - we've never seen anything like that in Europe!

Exactly! And plus seeing just how many people are into classic cars is so interesting. From older, retired types to young teenagers and younger moms and dads, we saw everyone gathering around the cars. Seeing them in Cuba would be amazing, of course....someday...:-)
