What’s Old Is New Again

Oldtimers at Vintage Car Show held at Otter Co-op April 24

A beautifully restored old Stanley “Steamer” cruised into the Otter Co-op parking lot for last Sunday’s fourth annual Country Car Showe, hosted by the local chapter of the Vintage Car Club of Canada. Despite the rain there was a good turnout for the wide variety of classic cars.

A 1911 Rumely is one-of-a-kind as it is the only one remaining in full restored operation, owned by the Hofffman family of Surrey, who brought it to the vintage car show at Otter Co-op on Sunday. The 36 horsepower steam tractor was the largest such tractor offered in its day and began service on the Manyberries farm in Alberta on May 12, 1912. It was parted out for a boiler in the late ‘40s but was restrored in 2013-16.

Two good ol’ boys, Doug Curren and Dave Stefanko, are both local residents who have been coming to the Otter Co-op Antique Car Show ever it started. Doug, with his 1939 Ford pick-up, and Dave, with his ‘56 Olds, have participated in car shows as far away as Ontario, Minnesota and California. Doug and Dave made the most out of a rainy day that saw many onlookers and car enthusiasts come by to check out a wide selection of antiques, hot rods and a couple of farm machines.
