Dundarave Porsche Show & Ride 2014

The Dundarave Porsche Show & Ride is a must attend event every year for me. It’s a laid back atmosphere with beautiful Porsches of all years, great conversation with owners, builders, restorers, and friends, as well as good coffee and food all right on the main strip in the little West Vancouver village. It’s an event not to be missed if you are any bit into Porsches, which of course, I am.

Italian Car Show at Lonsdale

With a limited amount of time on Sunday, I decided to stop by the beginnings of the Father’s Day Italian Car Show at Lonsdale Quay in North Vancouver before hitting the Dundarave Porsche Show & Ride. In hindsight, I should’ve done things the other way around, as the Italian collectors seemed a bit slower on the arrival then the Porsche guys who were out in full force between 10 and 11am over in West Vancouver. There were only about 15 cars out when I arrived at Lonsdale at 10am, but my were they gorgeous. The Maserati 3500 GT Superleggera and the Alfa Romeo 1600Z pictured below were two that caught my eyes right away. No Ferrari’s or Lamborghini’s had arrived yet, which was actually kind of nice as it allowed me to focus in closely on the details of just a few cars, the Alfa Romeos, the Fiats, Maseratis, and Lancias. I love the details, I love seeing all the interesting little things that these more unique cars came with. Todays vehicles just can’t compare in any way.

Bali Blue

While Vancouver has a fair share of Porsche’s kicking around its streets, there’s some that stand out a lot more than others. Now some might stand out because they have bold, exotic features, some have big spoilers and widened body panels, and some have brightly coloured wheels, graphics, and roll cages. Amongst all these Porsches though, there is one model called the 356.

The 356 was built from 1948-1965 and it fused together high-class fashion and sportiness so incredibly well, and so timelessly that it stands out amongst any crowd for simply being so damn beautiful. And while it has your eyes captivated by it’s beauty, the sporty shape, and the details of the gauges and instruments grab at your soul, drawing out an inescapable desire to get behind the wheel and just drive. It’s the kind of car you’d expect to find a young, fashionable Robert Redford in, perhaps driving through a picturesque European countryside with the windows down on a sunny Saturday morning to pick up the local paper, or a book, and bring it back to his cottage. Or maybe Audrey Hepburn in a silk headscarf, long gloves and sunglasses zipping through the streets of Paris, a luggage rack and suitcases on the back. It’s the type of car that is so classy it almost seems fitting only in dreamt up scenarios, or picture perfect movie scenes with handsome actors or beautiful actresses.

This particular Porsche 356, in its lustrous coats of Bali Blue, is a 1964 SC model, original to BC and bought from Clarkdale VW in 1964. It sat and collected dust after the 70’s and it was many years before, thankfully, it was given a bare metal restoration undertaken by the team at Jakobs Porsche Specialists in North Vancouver, BC.  They did a phenomenal job on the car. I could not stop looking at the gorgeous Bali Blue paint and combing over all the elegant little details.

Vancouver Automotive Shoot | 1974 Porsche 914 2.0

I just can’t get enough of the low, sleek look of these cars paired with the boxer motor grumble! This 914 is in beautiful condition, with subtle modifications to bring this 70’s classic, with it’s simple yet very unique lines, to a slightly more modern look. Be sure to give this car a look at the upcoming Dundarave Porsche Show & Ride this Sunday, June 16th.
