2015 Calgary ECCM & Das Volks

Posted by: Shelton Kwan onJuly 19th, 2015


Every year, we look forward to the Stanley Park European Classic Car Meet and Das Volks show, which showcases the best of the local European vintage cars as well as the biggest VW gathering in Alberta. This year, the event was threatened by the week long rain that preceded it, but with the weather gods cooperating, the show went on as scheduled without a hitch. Check out some of our favorites from the show this year.

First on the list is Herbie the Love Bug. Herbie was a generational icon for many of us old timers. It sucks that Lindsay Lohan ruined it for the current generation.

It’s 2015, the year Back to the Future travelled to in the future. Deloreans are extra cool this year just because of that.

The Italian Panther, aka De Tomaso Pantera. Absolutely outrageous when it was introduced in the 70’s, the design is timeless and still looks fresh 40 years later.

The coolest custom plate award goes to this Ferrari 308 GTS.

For the Mercedes fanboy in me, the Mercedes Benz SL “Pagoda”. It will be mine. Oh yes. It will be mine.

The E30 BMW M3 changed the performance segment, and gave us racing cred in our daily drivers. If it wasn’t for the M3 (and really, BMW 2002s), we wouldn’t have our S4’s, C63’s or CTS-V’s.

Rolls Royce Corniche Cabriolet. Do you have any Grey Poupon?

Volkswagen Karmann Ghia, another one of my personal “I will have one someday” favorites. Maybe a convertible one, cruising up and down the PCH.

Here’s the full gallery of our coverage. Enjoy!
