Last month was a good month for a car show in Alberta. No—it has no connection with global warming and everything to do with the 2018 Calgary World of Wheels.

 

This is always a great mix so you’ll see something from every corner of the car hobby—incredible customs like this hemi-powered ’61 Chrysler wagon.

British cars have a place at World of Wheels so you’ll see some fine examples at this show.

Where else can you see a classic old Cadillac ambulance next to a 200K custom?

This sleeper Zephyr looks like Grandpa’s old car but it had a monster under the hood.
