Web Site Mostly Inactive


Former President Don Earnshaw passed away Feb. 14, 2019. The formal club registered as a society was not in a position to continue and was officially dissolved. Daughter Heather Earnshaw and wife Bev have continued the production of “Ernie’s Calendar” of car shows on Vancouver Island and the Pacific northwest. Calendar updates appear immediately below this posting. Other than Ernie’s calendar, this site will be inactive 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 4100 members as of September 2022. For Facebook users, it is accessible at:


Ernie’s Calendar Aug. 17, 2021

Good Morning Everyone,    I appreciate your understanding with all the updates I’m sending out lately. I’m trying to get all the shows on here and sent out as I get them as some are coming up pretty quick. We are all chomping at the bit to get back to some normalcy and these shows are a great way to get that feeling of normalcy back.   If you’re able to get out to them that’s great and I hope you are all enjoying them! Sadly, I won’t get Dad’s car out to any shows this year, but I’m wishing all the events great success and again, I can’t tell you how great it is to cars out for little cruises around.  

New shows in this revision: CVEX Aug. 28 at Courtenay Exhibition Grounds and Sept 12 Oak Bay Collector Car Festival. Click here for the updated Calendar. Take Care, Heather

Ernie’s Calendar Aug. 20, 2020

Good Morning Everyone,

Click here for the final Ernie’s Calendar for 2020. It’s been a very unfortunate year for all of us and not having the car shows was sure upsetting. I’ve been going to car shows since I was a kid and I can honestly say, it’s been weird not attending any this year. It was refreshing; however, to see some out for some “Sunday drives”.

I would like to take a minute to thank you for everyone’s patience and kind words upon this first year of doing the calendar on my own. I can see why Dad took such pride in his calendar and it has been a real honor to take this on and to work with all of you. I look forward to next year.  I wish you all the best that the remainder of 2020 has to offer…the back half has to be better than the first…RIGHT? 2021 has to be a great year and I look forward to seeing all of you next season. 

Take Care, Stay Safe and Healthy!
Heather Tillapaugh (nee: Earnshaw)

Ernie’s Calendar Update July 20

Hi Everyone,

It’s very unfortunate that this year’s car season has been cancelled for the most part. Hopefully, you have all been working on those “honey do” lists.  I know I have been! I’ve seen a lot of cars out there and enjoying this beautiful weather we’ve been having, which sometimes makes it harder knowing the great weather we would have had for all these shows.

2020 Calendar_ July 20_2020  Here is the updated list. My sincere apologies for not sending one out earlier, but as I am sure we can all agree, none of us would be going to a show anyways.   We’ve been very lucky on the island and hopefully we can keep it that way.

Wishing you all good health and a great summer!  Take care, Heather


Ernie’s Calendar Update, June 2, 2020

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
