EVENTS & ROAD TRIPS

CANAMlogo2A

It is a tough time of the year for owners of Rolls-Royce and Bentley automobiles in the RROC Can-Am Prairie Region.  Less than desirable weather and road conditions force a majority of owners put their PMC's into hibernation.  The arrival of winter does not stop the planning of events.  'Off-season' get togethers will continue as will monthly on-line ZOOM meetings.  With 2022 just around the corner, the Events & Road Trips section of the Can-Am Prairie Region website will continue to be updated.

THE GRAND OPENING

Leduc, Alberta

>MOVED TO SPRING 2022!!

Howard Lengert, longtime RROC Can-Am Prairie Region member, will officially open the doors to the Rolls-Royce and Bentley car museum in the Spring of 2022.  The exterior of the museum is a tribute to the Hooper Coachbuilders building.  Inside the museum is Canada's largest collection of privately owned Rolls-Royce and Bentley automobiles from the 1920's to the 1990's.  Included in the collection are four Rolls-Royce cars built in the original Hooper Coachbuilders building in London.  Coronavirus and government restrictions unfortunately cancelled the official opening in 2020.  Lingering restrictions into 2021 forced organizers to make the hard decision to further delay the official grand opening until next year.  The museum is located on the grounds of the Leduc West Antique Society.  The LWAS is just 5 kilometers west of Leduc on Highway 39 and 1/4 kilometer north of Highway 39 on Range Road 260.
