For the first time Regent Classic Cars ventured south across the U.S. border to show its wares to our southern neighbors. First stop was Stanton Creek on Saturday August 31 for their 23rd annual show and shine near Essex Montana. It proved to be a very interesting day for sure, with the threat of rain they still managed to have 40 or so cars and some beautiful bikes from locals and visitors alike. For a smaller venue the organization was done very well offering live entertainment for most of the day and a fantastic outdoor pig roast that was fantastic. The entries were nothing short of spectacular with a broad spectrum for all to enjoy. Well done Carla and the folks at Stanton Creek and a special thanks to Mitch for the invite.
The second part of the weekend, Sunday September 1, found us at The Rumble in the Bay in Bigfork Montana where they were celebrating The Year of The Mustang. And what a celebration it was. With arguably the nicest day of the summer coming forth to ensure good attendance and a wonderful venue how could it not be awesome.
Over 300 stunning entries, and a good portion of those were Mustangs, were there to appease the likes of all in attendance. To our surprise the 1967 Mustang GT-A Convertible from our [...]
Cars and Guitars 2019 was another great showing for Regent Classic Cars with no less than five of the cars from the collection on display. Our 1989 Cadillac Zimmer, that was an outstanding attraction, spent Friday evening as part of the cruise and although the weather was less than desirable those that were there had a good time.
It was another great showing for the 1937 Ford 3 window coupe as it was again first out of the gate taking a top 10 award. The 1965 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud proved to be a popular display as did the 1955 Ford Crown Victoria Glass Top. Our 1967 Ford Mustang GT-A and the 1932 Ford Model B Coupe took their turns as being the center of attention in the Regent Classic Car display as well.
Even if the weather wasn't perfect, the show went off without a hitch and the pin up girls had a great time getting their pictures taken with some of the cars.
All in all another successful show for the Regent Classic Car collection.
Regent Classic Cars visits Moose Jaw Show and Shine 2019
Regent Classic Cars made the trip east on the TransCanada Highway to a great little venue in Moose Jaw Sask. The show was held in Happy Valley Park and was host to nearly 250 entries from all over Saskatchewan and Southern Alberta.
With absolutely perfect weather there was a vast increase over last years attendance both for exhibitors and attendees alike, making this a very welcome show. The 1937 Ford 3 window coupe brought home the plaque for best Hot Rod and our 1932 Ford Model B had numerous mentions as a stunning example of its era.
Regent Classic Cars again had a very successful showing and proved to be a crowd favorite.
Our next stop will be right here at home for Cars and Guitars August 16 and 17 so hope to see everyone there.
Regent shows up on History Road at the Reynolds Museum in Wetaskiwin.
Well we were out and about again with a visit back in time. June 8 & 9 2019 saw Regent Classic Cars take its 1932 Ford Model B and its 1937 Ford 3 window coupe up to Wetaskiwin to the Reynolds Museum to participate in the History Road car show. And what a show it was, with 477 vehicles ranging from the early 1900's up to some late model entries, indeed it was pleasing for both participants and spectators alike. With vehicles from every depiction they were lined up as far as the eye could see. And yet again Regent Classic Cars proved to be a real crowd favorite with its two entries.
It was and is The Ultimate Car Show, and a fine job the folks at the Reynolds Museum did to orchestrate and finalize the arrangements whether in chronological order, club affiliation,or model designation. It is safe to say we will be back next year.

The Good Friday crowd was strong from the opening of the doors until they closed at 10pm with Saturday being as strong during the day.
