Well Boys and Girls, the 2014 edition of the Annual Kaslo show and shine is now in the history books and despite less than ideal weather all around us, Kaslo once again had a useable day weather wise. The turnout was somewhat smaller that last year but non the less we had just under 80 incredible cars turn up and everyone had a really excellent time. Thank you to all of the registrants for taking the day to show up and we look forward to seeing you all again next year.

The Kaslo Show and Shine was started by a small group of dedicated car buffs as a feature in the 1997 May days celebrations held on the May long weekend every year. The inaugural event had approximately 15 vehicles on display and from that small beginning has been held every year since and has seen continuous growth to the point that in 2012 there were just under 100 registered cars covering the years from the 1930’s up to some exceedingly rare Mustangs from the 1960’s and 1970’s
Kaslo is a village of about 1000 people, situated about an hours drive North of Nelson BC on the West Shore of Kootenay Lake and nestled between the Purcell mountains to the East and the Selkirk range to the West. For a small community Kaslo has an unusually high number of interesting and unique vehicles both in the village and in the surrounding area and has counted among its residents one of only two original Shelby Cobras licensed in BC amongst other interesting vehicles.
Over the years the Show and Shine has began to attract cars from further afield and has seen cars from as far afield as Spokane, Vancouver BC and the Prairie Provinces of Canada.
If you are an old car or hot rod fan – or owner – you are encouraged to add Kaslo to your calendar of must see events. If you do decide to come please feel free to browse the pages of this web site to learn more about our show and shine and the community as a whole.
Thanks for taking the time to visit digitally and we look forward to seeing you and your cars physically.
