Lethbridge Real Estate - Hod Rod Streetwheelers and Collectible Cars

Lethbridge Real Estate - Hot Rods

 

Lethbridge is known as a hot rod town.  There is an unusually large number of collecible automobiles tucked away in garages, sheds, and barns around southern Alberta.  Many of these cars only see the sunlight one or two weekends a year.  I look so forward to those weekends as I love to see our streets filled with classic cars, vintage antiques, hot rods, and junkers in progress of becoming works of art.

 

The large number of car enthusiasts in Lethbridge is one of the reasons that real estate properties with covered parking and large garages are so popular with Lethbridge real estate buyers.  I have many buyers who purchase a home, seeking out one with a large yard, so that they can add the cost of a nice new garage into the Lethbridge mortgage they take out.  By building the cost of a new garage into the purchase price of their home they are able to finance it over the same amortization as the home and at the same low Lethbridge interest rates.

 

Now, on to my point of writing today was that we had a couple of warm days in Lethbridge and I had a bad case of hot rod fever.  I spent this cold weather weekend up at Okotoks at the Collector Car Auction.  Here are some pics of some of the cars that were there and the event.  Tough to spend the day there and not get excited about this years big Street Wheelers Weekend in Lethbridge.
