This is the Saanich Historical Artifacts Society property. It is just east of the Pat Bay Highway in Central Saanich off Island View Road across from Michells Farm Market.

BRITISH VEHICLE(S) FOR SALE AREA This very popular event will have hundreds of British car enthusiasts ready to talk to you about your British vehicle for sale. Every year a number of British cars are sold. If you are advertising it, mention that it will be at the show to view. Please note that this special area has room for TWENTY vehicles so do reserve as early as you can. Suggestions: Wash and polish your car; tidy up the interior; clean up the engine compartment; clean the wheels and tires; consider having photos of any restoration work; have some handout sheets (maybe a dozen?) with the details of your car and your contact information. Bring a felt marker to fill in the For Sale card provided. Bring a chair and some snacks so you can always be close to your car to answer questions.
We look forward to seeing you.
