Cruiser of the week: Bob Chubala

  • Print

Bob Chubala is the quintessential Manitoba car guy.

In addition to owning what is surely the sweetest 1968 Chevrolet Caprice Estate Wagon on planet Earth, Chubala is also the chairman of the Manitoba Association of Auto Clubs, the chairman of the annual Piston Ring World of Wheels car show, and a sales manager at Ledingham G.M. in Steinbach.

When Chubala isn't moving metal in the Automobile City, he's working feverishly to help keep the wheels turning in our car-crazy town.

Recently, Chubala has been burning the midnight oil organizing and promoting Winnipeg's first-ever Collector Car Appreciation Day, being held this evening at the Manitoba Legislature grounds (see Classic Cruising).

Chubala is quick to point out that this is a MAAC event and not about him, (he'll probably kill me for making him the cruiser of the week). But this man has literally put his heart and soul into this event, and he deserves recognition.

MAAC represents more than 70 organized car clubs and an estimated 25,000 Manitobans. So, if you're part of our local auto scene you owe it to MAAC, Bob Chubala and yourself to head downtown tonight and celebrate the best our amazing hobby has to offer.
