The Greatest Show on British Wheels, Vancouver ABFM, is pleased to announce that Hagerty Collector Car Insurance will be the Presenting Sponsor for the 35th anniversary event at VanDusen Botanical Garden, Vancouver, B.C. Canada.
“We are pleased to welcome the world’s largest collector car insurer and automotive lifestyle brand to partner with us as the Presenting Sponsor for the 2021 ABFM show,” said Patrick Stewart, event co-chair. “Through their involvement, we plan to introduce some additional features at the show—a Best Club Award in recognition of those dedicated enthusiasts who run local classic car clubs; and an award in recognition and support of young people through the show’s Youth Judging Awards program.
“The important work of car clubs and the involvement of next-generation car enthusiasts are vital to the very survival of the classic car hobby and our continued enjoyment of old car ownership. We are thankful for Hagerty’s support in these important ABFM programs.”
Featured marques that were to be celebrated in 2020 have been carried forward—Triumph Stag 50th and English Fords, first produced in 1911—plus there will be a celebration of the 60th anniversary of the Jaguar EType.
A special look at the future will be showcased in an ElectraFest vehicle display, showcasing the trend of combining classic looks with modern driveability.
The event day will be one to remember, with a capacity gathering of British-built classics, exhibitors and vendors on display in the beautiful garden setting.
“Given the 2020 pandemic year that resulted in cancelled events and social isolation, we are looking forward to seeing the classics roll in and welcoming everyone back in grand style to our much cherished garden party for all classic car enthusiasts,” said Joan Stewart, event co-chair.
We look forward to welcoming you back to our 35th event celebration, when it is safe to do so and BC Provincial Health Orders permit.
