That's right guys! We had this last year, and GM has just announced the date for it this year.

It will be Friday August 8, 2008, so put that date in your calendars and please try to make it!

It is the 10th annual running of the show, and there over 350 GM powered cars there last year. We had a good turnout of CTS-Vs and CTSs, but would like more this year!

They even made a trophy for best CTS last year!


Highlights include

- Outdoor car show, any GM car is welcome, so that means us!
- Outdoor BBQ
- GM plant tour

And more details will be released when the date gets closer!

Here are some pictures from last year: http://www.ontariocts.com/past_events/08_10_07/
