The 2012 Revelstoke Mountain Paradise Show ‘n’ Shine hosted by the Revelstoke Vintage Car Club went off nicely on June 3, despite early morning downpours that threatened to put a damper on the event.

The sun muscled through the clouds creating a pleasant atmosphere for the annual event that saw Mackenzie Avenue and the first blocks of First and Second Streets closed to all but vintage vehicles.

Here are the winners from the event. Don’t forget to check out the over 80 photos from the event on the Revelstoke Times Review Flickr gallery. Click each image to see the caption.
