Lordco Auto Parts 29th Annual Trade Show was once again a well-attended and successful event for British Columbia’s aftermarket.
Held at Vancouver’s Pacific National Exhibition, the annual event brings thousands of shop owners, technicians, and other automotive aftermarket professionals to talk with some 400 exhibitors in two buildings—the Agrodome is dedicated to shop equipment and tools while the Colliseum exhibits focus on parts and accessories.
Among the many notable attractions was a 1948 Rat Rod created by RSC’s director of product development Rob Stuck. The Ford bodied creation features a GM drivetrain, air suspension, flat black paint, and many other goodies. Stuck says it’s a great cruiser and feels right at home rolling down the hiqhway at “80 or 90 miles an hour.” (We won’t tell.)
It certainly attracted quite a bit of attention at the show, especially when it was started up at one point. Let’s just say that everybody was fully aware of it when he gave the accelerator a couple of stabs.
Notable too is that the project will be going on tour for a year and then will be given away at Lordco’s 2020 trade show.
Sales estimates were not available at press time, but attendance was as strong as ever and exhibitors reported strong order writing.
