Campbell River 'Vairs

Many WCC members have heard about a huge stash of 'Vairs in Campbell River, and over the years it has developed into mythical proportions.  In November 2001 a group of us, (Rob Hall, Shaun McGarvey, Mike Wiermier, Shawn Sirna and Joel Rushworth) travelled up to Campbell River to finally get a closer look at this legendary place.  Ken Miller, a local WCC Member, kindly volunteered to be our guide and to introduce us to Don Proctor, the owner of these 'Vairs.  What we found were about a dozen 'Vairs that are, to various degrees, projects in one state or another.  We're hoping we can find homes for these and that they can be brought back to life over the next couple of years.  Contact Don Proctor at (250) 830-1167 for directions and more information.

The Body tag has a typo.  It says "S82", which #1 isn't an option and #2 would never come before M20 because they are listed in decending alphabetical order.
It should read A82, for headrests, which have unfortunately been sold, and are not in the car.
Pretty much rusted away.  The 'Brier on the far left is so far gone that the whole passenger side caved in.  However, the camper package on the middle 'Brier is salvageable, and a pretty trick (albeit ugly) installation.

This one appears to be the best of the bunch, and Don's personal 'Vair.  He has added different features from the other 'Vairs onto this one.
The pics from this point forward are in a second barn located a short drive away.  To conserve space he has actually jacked up the end of the front 'Vair and shoved the second underneath, same with the third, it went under the second.

Because of their positioning we weren't able to get body tags on any of the EMs, just the late 'vert.  There is also a LM in here that has been modified for a Kelmark V8 kit.  I seem to recall Shawn mentioning that it had disc brakes on the front as well (but don't quote me on that)

EM coupe #1 was not so good, but #2 and #3 were certainly restorable, to the best of my recollection.    

No info on this one.
