That’s the mantra Habitat for Humanity Kamloops will implement this summer, as the organization uses its iconic red 1968 Chevrolet Camaro SS convertible (with white top) to travel around SM in the beautiful, warm sunshine.
This beautifully renovated ride will be drawn this fall as the grand prize of the fourth annual Habitat for Humanity Kamloops Classic Car Sweepstakes.
Those interested can see the 1968 Camaro convertible live at the following events and locations throughout the month of July:
- July 9th at the Salmon Arm Car Show
- July 10th at the Vernon Car Show
- July 15-17 at Hot July Nights at 100 Mile House
- July 23 in Chrome on the Grass in Kamloops
- 24 July at Overlander Days in Kamloops

Funds raised through the Classic Car Raffle will assist the nonprofit in its mission of building a stronger future for families and communities by building a solid foundation for affordable housing.
Habitat for Humanity Kamloops is based in Kamloops and serves communities in the Thompson-Nicola, Columbia-Shuswap and Cariboo & Fraser-Fort George areas of BC, and the organization is committed to working with all families, seniors, veterans, and single parents in providing ownership accessible home.
This year, Habitat for Humanity Kamloops purchased this exciting raffle prize, a 1968 Camaro SS Convertible, from Ian Gray Salmon Arm GM.
Over the past three years, Rust Valley Restorers have partnered with Habitat for Humanity Kamloops to support the construction of affordable housing foundations for residents in Kamloops, the Shuswap area and beyond.
In the fall of 2021, Mike Hall of Rust Bros. sold his property and auctioned off many of his vehicles.
How this unique partnership all started is with a quick stop for coffee at this charming ’50s restaurant in BC Interior. Habitat for Humanity Kamloops executive director Bill Miller and procurement coordinator Rex Landis chatted over their coffee, discussing how the organization could reintroduce themselves into society and have a greater local impact.
Looking out through the glass windows of this nostalgic restaurant is a unique collection of antique vehicles, which inspired Miller and Landis to come up with the idea of holding a Classic Car Sweepstakes to raise awareness and funds for their cause. With luck, a restaurant employee managed to connect the Habitat for Humanity Kamloops team with Mike Hall of The Rust Brothers, who has a large collection of rare and classic cars amassed over the years on Mike’s property.
A partnership with Habitat for Humanity Kamloops was formalized, and in line with Canadian documentary television series Rust Valley Restores, Rust Bros agreed to restore classic cars for Habitat for Humanity Kamloops and support Habitat’s first annual raffle.
Rust Valley Restorers airs on the History Channel and Netflix, and has brought attention and awareness to Habitat for Humanity Kamloops and their worldwide mission.
