Sidney streets welcome Torque Masters for annual show

Club brings classic, unusual and just generaly hot cars to downtown

It’s the sort of event that you don’ have to have an intense love affair with cars to get torqued about.

But it helps.

The pavement of downtown Sidney is heating up with anticipation for lines of classic, modern and modified vehicles during this weekend’s 2018 Coast Capital Auto Extravaganza.

Hosted by the Greater Victoria area’s Torque Masters Car Club, last year’s edition of the event drew thousands of people throughout the day to see the shiniest, most souped-up cars and trucks on the Island. Various prizes were also up for grabs among the many people who entered their vehicles.

Torque Masters Auto Extravaganza hits the streets Sunday, Aug. 12, 2018. You can add your wheels to the registration roll at the show for $25. Check in is at the Mary Winspear Centre. The first 100 vehicles will get a “swag bag” from event sponsors

Gates open at 8 a.m. Registration closes at 11 a.m. The show closes at 3 p.m.

Revived in 1992, the Sidney-based Torque Masters exist “to preserve and maintain interest in all makes and types of automobiles. To share our interest with all levels of our community. To be good role models and have fun.”
