Iconic automobiles rolled into Salmon Arm for 19th annual showcase

The R.J. Haney Heritage Village & Museum was packed with iconic automobiles Aug. 12 for the 19th annual Classic Antique Car Show.

From old hot-rods and muscle cars to restored work trucks and family wagons, the gleam of immaculately restored paint jobs and the glint of shiny chrome could be seen throughout the grounds.

The smoky Sunday weather didn’t keep the spectators away as many could be seen filtering in and out of the grounds, milling about and swapping stories from the road and compliments about their cars.
