“You guys did a great job organizing Barriere’s first Show-N-Shine,” wrote 1966 GTO owner Bill Lindstrom

Participants arrived from far and wide to the event – from the 604 exchange, Kamloops, Rayleigh, Clearwater and points in between. They came to participate in and attend the The Bear’s first Show-N-Shine in Barriere on Aug. 18, along Airport Road next to the park.

“You guys did a great job organizing Barriere’s first Show-N-Shine,” wrote 1966 GTO owner Bill Lindstrom, in an email that included photographs of the event, to The Bear radio station’s owner Steve Shannon, and radio host Gary Pfeifer.

Shannon and Pfeifer first launched the idea of a show and shine while doing a radio talk show together, and from there the project grew into the success that it became the week before last.

“Spectators were in awe of the ‘eye candy’ of the numerous fine vehicles on display,” noted Lindstrom in his message, “Everyone said they enjoyed themselves,”

 

Now folks are eager to find out when the next Show-N-Shine will take place in Barriere.
