ANNAPOLIS VALLEY - A cross-country classic cars tour will soon be rolling into town.

The summer-long 2017 Canadian Coast to Coast Classic Vehicle Tour spanning from Victoria, B.C, to St. John’s, Newfoundland is slated to make a few pit stops in Nova Scotia Aug. 16-19.

“Not only do we have members that represent every province in Canada, we take a leisurely drive through each of those provinces exploring the best each one has to offer,” the event’s website says.

On Aug. 17, the convoy’s itinerary lists Windsor, Hantsport and the Grand Pre Historic Site as possible destinations.

The Greenwood Aviation Museum is on deck for a lunch stop Aug. 18 between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m., and the tour is scheduled to visit several locations throughout Kings and Annapolis counties throughout the day. The group will move on to the Digby area Aug. 19.

“Every day isn't a hectic pace. Our travel days are usually less than three hours to give lots of time to see the sites on the road less traveled, and to enjoy the fellowship of car people from across this great country of ours. Participants of the tour are about to go on the tour of a lifetime,” a prepared statement on the Canadian Coasters website reads.

“There is no other tour in the world like it.”
