Montreal Area Classic Car Events for July 2013

For several years now, I’ve been posting Montreal area classic car shows and cruises on my other blog, If you’re looking for information a week at a time, you can still check it out there. However, I thought I’d try putting the information here as well, for those who prefer a pop-up ad free experience, and see how it goes. If you’re from Montreal and found this column here and would like me to continue it, please let me know in the comments—you can post anonymously if you prefer.
