Cloverdale’s Harold Wellenbrink was bombing around in his 1952 Meteor Custom cruiser convertible, ‘Cool Blue,’ during Rodeo Week, when he stopped by our office.

He lovingly restored the classic car. He’s a member of the Vancouver Motorsport Pioneers Society who’s spent 60 years restoring cars and related memorabilia, including building a replica shell Oil Station in his back yard.

Look for him at upcoming car shows this summer.
