Event Coverage: World Of Wheels 2013

1

Last weekend the 47th Annual Auto Value World Of Wheels took place at the BMO Center in Calgary Alberta, and contributing photographer Mike McConnell just so happened to be in attendance with his trusty DSLR.

Based on his coverage World of Wheels looks very similar to Performance World (now Megaspeed) here in Ontario. It caters mostly to classics –something I don’t mind at all– but every make, model, and style of build is welcome.

Mike sent through a great variety of photos that hopefully you will enjoy as much as I did.

Hell of a lot of articulation here

Nice contrast with the satin and gold here, especially with the wheels and white walls

This appears to be some sort of Ford bread truck

I wonder if he gets as many questions about the air cooler that Blair does

Judging by the amount of photos Mike took of this Chevy 3100 I would say it’s one of his personal favorites
rootbeer_chev_4
It’s really not very hard to see why
rootbeer_chev_3
The truck sits perfect and the paint is simply amazing

And it’s spotless inside and out

Interesting choice of tints on this one

Still trying to convince myself I don’t want a motorcycle but bikes like this make that pretty difficult….

Check out the approving face out back

This finish on this car reminds me somewhat a build known as ‘Gold Rush‘ from Performance World a few years ago

Love this colour, looks almost like a slightly blue tinted, clear-coated primer

35 Chev
ford_3
Another look at the 35 Chevy

Very traditionally built 3 window

This Ford almost looks like a Hot Wheels at this angle

Speaking of cars that look like Hot Wheels, this looks absolutely insane

So much chrome it’s difficult to tell what’s going on

Almost looks like a sand rail with street tires
