Club Challenge Build 2019
The club has decided on a group challenge build:
- build one or more cars that competed or appeared in the Shell 4000 Rally
- deadline is Torcan 2019 show (end of May 2019)
- car can be one that competed or one of the support vehicles

The Shell 4000 Rally ran from 1961 to 1971 (with a break for 1969 and 1970).  It ran before the Trans-Canada highway
was completed and ran from Vancouver to Montreal (usually).
