TORONTO, May 31 2016 /CNW/ - Canadian TV personality David Grainger of 'Restoration Garage' will be at Centennial College on Sunday, June 5 as part of the college's ninth annual "Show and Shine" auto show in Scarborough.
Grainger, who operates the Guild of Automotive Restorers in Bradford, will be displaying the world's only example of the magnesium-bodied 1935 Bugatti Aerolithe that his team painstakingly recreated from photographs over five years. The original concept car is thought to have been dismantled during World War II.
Grainger's beautiful replication – built on an original Bugatti Type 57 chassis – will be joined on display by other vintage, custom and tuner cars, trucks and motorcycles owned by Centennial employees and graduates, as well as members of the public.
Centennial is marking its 50th anniversary as Ontario's first college, which includes Canada's largest transportation technology training centre at Ashtonbee Campus. The day includes a barbecue, DJ, sponsor booths, airbag demonstrations, campus tours and show prizes.
Admission is free. Members of the public are invited to display their own vehicles of interest (display fee is $10 per vehicle, which includes lunch, t-shirt and prizes). Gates open at 7:30 am and close at 4 pm.
Centennial's Ashtonbee Campus is located at 75 Ashtonbee Road, one block north of Eglinton Ave. East and Warden Ave. For details go to: www.centennialcollege.ca.
