Former President Don Earnshaw passed away Feb. 14, 2019. The formal club was not in a position to continue and has been officially dissolved. Daughter Heather Earnshaw has been continuing with production of “Ernie’s Calendar” of car shows on Vancouver Island and the Pacific northwest. Calendar updates will appear immediately below this posting.
Ernie’s Calendar is also available on the Calendar page which also includes links to Harris and other car show listing sites. Other than calendars, this site will no longer be active although the web site will endure as it has a considerable amount of reference information in the various pages listed on the menu bar.
The club lives on as a very active Facebook group of more than 2000 members (as of May 2020). For Facebook users, it is accessible at:
Hi Everyone, Although we are able to expand our circles a little bit, unfortunately not enough for car shows right now as I know we are all missing. For those of you looking for a Cruise night – Cars4Covid, Marvin Welch advised me of one that takes place all around Victoria (for any locals here). My mum and I did it and boy it was SO enjoyable – I highly recommend it. It’s a fundraiser for Covid 19 Research and to show the appreciation to all essential service workers. Please see the attached update for cancelled shows. Click here for the calendar update..
Take Care & Stay Healthy, Heather
Hi folks, more cancellations, Heather’s dedicated efforts don’t stop because car shows stop!! As Heather mentions, please use email@example.com for further correspondence with her about car shows. Click here for the updated calendar.
Hi again, folks, Question answered almost immediately – Q’Beach Fathers’ Day show cancelled
Cheers, Marvin Welch,
Classic Auto Literature.
I am or was a member of CCCB, #479, I am retired, I do not do any thing on Facebook but I am willing to try. I have a 66 Beaumont Custom Sedan, I am slowly trying to restore it. I went to the Facebook page to sign up but have run into a slight problem, I don’t have a mobile number. How do I get around this, I would like to access your people to help me finding parts.
Good Morning, folks,
2020 Calendar_May 1_2020 is the latest of Heather’s auto events list with yet more cancellations. Excellently set up, cancelled ones show up brightly!!
In addition Rick Robinson, CVCC Courtenay has sent me a notice that their show July 25-26 is also cancelled.
Looks like a summer of private cruises for enjoyment like Heather mentions, but no big shows or gatherings. Oh well, just like a poor year in farming, there’s always next year!!
Cheers, Marvin Welch, Classic Auto Literature.
Jim’s reminder – you won’t be seeing Marvin and his marvelous collection of auto literature at this year’s car shows. If you’re looking for something, email him at firstname.lastname@example.org
Hope this email finds you all well and you’re all coping with the quarantine well. Are you purging your homes like I am? That donation pile just keeps getting bigger haha.
In such uncertain times right now I know there may be many updates/cancellations coming down the pipe. I will update as I receive the notifications. Fingers crossed this car show season isn’t a total loss this year.
I hope you all take care of yourselves!! Wishing you all the best!
Again, please advise if you notice any discrepancies.

Note – the Portland Swap Meet was cancelled.
Heather, you are indefatigable. Click here for the most recent Ernie’s Calendar update for Vancouver Island and adjacent Pacific Northwest events. I will strip out some of the earlier calendar versions. Contact me if you need to seem them again.
Doug Mayorchak of the CCCB Facebook group has suggested that this might be a good show to get together in Edmonton on June 23.
This mail has been sent to all CCCB members in Saskatchewan.
Fred Alexander in Saskatoon has kindly agreed to be a contact person for the CCCB club members in Saskatchewan. He will receive and fan out e-mails from other SA members about anything that may be of common interest to the group such as vehicles or parts for sale/wanted/found or if another club member may suggest a meet and greet type event, whether that’s a car show or some other place that might serve for a get together. Do you have a suggestion for a meet up for this summer? If so, Fred’s e-mail address is email@example.com If you want to speak to him, he may be contacted on his cell at (306) 203-1942 .We are working off of Don Earnshaw’s 2018 list, so let Fred know if you are changing your e-mail address or other contact information.
Thank you Fred for your continuing support of the CCCB. It is appreciated.
