Default Connor's Day - Vancouver, Canada

I've been sitting here for ten minutes trying to think of something poignant to say, but words keep failing me. Basically I just wanted to say that Zippy and Connor's story really touched a lot of people's hearts. In fact, it touched many of us in Vancouver so much that we decided to hold our own little meet to show that you guys aren't alone in this (apart from the 500 or so cars that attended your meet lol). About a hundred cars from Revscene, NASIOC and other local car clubs attended in a show of support.

Don't ever lose hope, no matter how bleak the situation may look. And just know that even on the other side of the world, on the other end of the pond, we're here, thinking about you guys.

A video I made of our meet:

And a few shots from various club members:

Rule, Britannia!....Britannia rule the waves!....Britons never never never shall be slaves!

A touching and heart felt effort from our brothers and sista's.

That's brilliant and as above, zippy will be truly great full. Liking the evo's andlack of police. Is it just the UK cruise scene that has more rubbish on the floor and standard cars attending. (obviously not the Conner meet!)

I'm not ashamed to to say, I've got tear or two rolling down my cheeks.

Such a moving gesture from our brethren across the pond. (The Commonwealth is in rude health it would seem.)

Thanks for the kind words, guys. It was truly a team effort on our part over here. In case you guys were interested, here are the links to our threads:

http://www.revscene.net/forums/67353...ath-video.html

http://www.revscene.net/forums/67311...ne-marine.html

There are some more pictures in the second link. I'd copy 'em over but I'm a little too tired to do it (it's already 3am here lol).

Hey guys, logging in from Revscene as well I don't really have much to say other than I'm glad our little meet was received with such a warm response. I can honestly say the turn out was greater than some of us expected due to such short notice. It's really heartwarming to me to see enthusiasts come together like that to try to make something special for someone halfway across the world.

And of course a big thank you to Lomac for creating such an amazing video I hope you guys check out the two threads Lomac posted to see some of the other photos that were taken

All I can express is this:-



Canada FTW!

I'm sure 'The Connor' family will be touched, moved and no doubt a little choked up by your very selfless and generous gesture.

Waterworks have started again...

When things really MATTER, it's humbling to see that humanity actually does pull together.
