Bent Wrench Run once again a highlight of Father’s Day weekend

Show and shine in Wakamow Valley featuring hundreds of vehicles to take place on Sunday, June 18

Those Guys Car Club will once again be bringing one of the most popular events of the Father’s Day weekend to Wakamow Valley.

Hundreds of vehicles of all vintages, values and vroom-ability will descend on the Wakamow Oval for the eighth annual Bent Wrench Run Father’s Day Show and Shine on Sunday, June 18.

And folks can expect to be a little bit wowed by what they find on site.

Past shows have featured everything from tricked-out rat rods to perfectly maintained family cruisers from the 1950s and plenty of supercharged monsters -- including a 760-horsepower ‘67 Pontiac Beaumont that dropped many a jaw last summer.

Best of all? It’s all completely free to stop by and check everything out. 

The show and shine runs from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and will feature a host of vendors on site, selling a wide variety of car-related items and trinkets. One stall in 2022 even offered custom-made cartoon prints of your vehicle in the old Hot Rod magazine style, with the artist reporting brisk sales throughout the day.

Visitors can get up close and personal with the vehicles, with many owners hanging around to answer any questions or queries interested folks might have. Patrons are often drawn to some of the oldest cars in the show, with Model T and Model A owners more than happy to regale onlookers with tales of restoration and sourcing surprisingly easy-to-find parts to keep their ancient cars in perfect running order.

Another highlight of the weekend comes the day before, as cars and trucks participating in the Show and Shine will cruise Main Street in the early evening.

The entry fee to show off your car is $20 per vehicle, with all proceeds going to Hunger in Moose Jaw.

Here are a handful of cool scenes from 2022 and be sure to check things out on the weekend!
