All posts for the month June, 2013

Every year Montreal plays host to the Grand Prix. And every year one thing is guaranteed: there will be one hell of a party! This year was no different. Even though the weather did not cooperate, the party happened regardless. I had the opportunity to attend some of the festivities that were happening on Crescent street, which was closed to traffic from St.Catherine street all the way up to Sherbrooke. I was there Friday evening and Crescent street was jammed! Queen Flash, a tribute to Queen, were performing and had everyone singing and dancing all evening.
Dodge Chrysler had some gorgeous vehicles on display. I have a particular fondness for the Viper and the new Challenger.  The Challenger brings me back to the early 70’s when muscle cars roamed the earth and as an impressionable youth I wanted one so bad!



Queen Flash performed during the Crescent street Grand Prix festival in Montreal June 7 2013.
The band really sounds good live.Very tight. I was very impressed at how well they performed Queen’s biggest hits. The fact is that Queen songs are hard to reproduce. They played really well and looked like they were having a blast doing it. Their enthusiasm was contagious and the audience sang along on every song. A great time was had by all.
The turnout was very high even though the weather did not cooperate- it was cold and drizzling all night, yet all stayed to the end! Proof as to how good they were.

It is Grand Prix weekend and the weather in Montreal just sucks! It is cold and rainy. Regardless, it is time to enjoy the many festivities and hopefully take some pictures of the many exotic cars that will be present in our city. On a personal level it reminded me that I had not posted any of my pics from the classic Bike and Tattoo show. The show does have many cars on display alongside the many motorcycles and this being Grand Prix weekend it’s a perfect opportunity to post my pics.

The Classic bike and Tattooshow as usual, was a great success. Turnout was high and everyone was in a party mood. There were many vehicles to lust over as well as the occasionnal babe. Over the next couple of days, I hope to post more of my pics. One piece of advice that I would like to share is always make sure to have room on your camera’s memory card if you intend to attend a show and take pictures. It is not much fun when the memory card is full! I just needed to share that.
