May '24 Show Time!


Hello Everyone!

Our wishes for decent weather to enjoy our Vipers have finally been answered, and the club offers countless opportunities to do that with other Viper enthusiasts! We hope you'll all join us on our 2024 adventures, with one of our best coming this month!


The 2024 VCO Viper Show & Lunch Meeting on May 25th at Hagerty G+S in Burlington will be our largest ever with 80 Vipers and 120 members already registered! This will surely be the largest gathering of Vipers assembled anywhere in 2024, and if you haven't experienced this VCO Viper Show spectacle in the past, RSVP to join this one today!


The Viper Show, Member's Choice voting, and "Tech Talks" are held in the morning. Our friends from the Ferrari Club-Canada East Chapter will be displaying their beauties in an adjacent lot. Lunch will be served starting at noon with the lunch meeting starting at 12:30. London director Jamie Herrington will emcee a fast-paced meeting, featuring Outstanding Contribution, Event Participation & 5 Member's Choice Show Awards, plus free draws, our Treasurer's annual financial report, and more. Those who pre-ordered a club gift will be able to pick them up, and we ordered a few extras for those who didn't!


Membership Vote

We'll be holding 2 votes during our annual lunch meeting to approve amendments required under the new Ontario Not-For Profit Corporation Act among other changes. Complete details will be emailed by May 4th for member review before the meeting.

Mobil 1 Zoom Presentation

The Mobil 1 Canadian Motorsports Coordinator, David Swain, put on an informal Zoom motor oil presentation that you might enjoy. David covers the interesting history of numerous oil companies that eventually created Mobil 1 (0-21 min), everything you ever wanted to know about motor oil including myths (20-52 min), and then Q&A (52-1:33).

New Dodge Muscle - the 2025 Charger!

Stellantis is hoping to provide a pre-production Dodge Charger EV for display at our Viper Show! Chargers will be available in EV and 3.0L Twin Turbo Hurricane motors, and in 2 & 4 door configurations. Fingers-crossed that we'll have one on display at our show!


Member's Car Collections

We have quite a few members with impressive car collections of all different sizes.

If you'd like to show your pride & joys to other members, perhaps with a morning or evening mini-meet, please reach out to your area's club director or Bruce to discuss!
