North Van High centennial recreates parking lot of the ages

More than 1,400 alumnus and visitors flock to the high school's 100th anniversary celebration car show

The parking lot outside the class reunions and celebration marking the 100th anniversary of North Vancouver high school looked the way students would have wanted.

A display of cars that young people have admired over the years was organized for the anniversary. These included Corvettes, classic Thunderbirds, an Austin-Healey sports car, a 1936 Lagonda Drophead Coupe that had been a North Vancouver garage find and a 1951 Chrysler convertible owned by grad Al Scholes that was originally used for the 1951 Royal visit.

The cars represented every decade over the full century that has passed since North Van High first opened its doors in 1910: Cars like a 1911 Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost owned by a grad's father-in-law, three Model A Fords owned by grads and a 1948 Plymouth owned by a friend of a grad.

Extending the display of cars beyond the years of the school demolished in 1979 was a 1986 Jaguar Cabriolet that was displayed at the Expo 86 British Pavilion. One grad, now living in Seattle, drove a 2010 Corvette ZR1.

The show of 40 special interest cars at Norseman Field was organized by Colin Gurnsey, whose wife Laurel is a North Van High grad. "The show featured the kind of cars that students dreamed about when they were in school," Colin Gurnsey says. "They represent, in a visual way, many of the historical events and changes that took place in car design that happened in one hundred years."

North Van High's centennial celebration attracted an estimated 1,400 former students and teachers.
