Westiva X... almost there!

Westiva 2017 attendees

Well here we are on the eve of Westiva X. The weather is looking quite pleasant with a forecast highs ranging from of 18º-20ºC/64º-68ºF with a mix of sun and cloud. People are already on their way from the Yukon and Washington state. Greg Williams, who has written a couple of articles featuring Westiva and our road trips, recently posted a new one on All in all it's shaping up to be a great day... so whether you're an owner of an econobox or just curious about the fascination with the breed why not to head to Wedge Pond Day Use area in Kananaskis Country tomorrow morning!

Westiva 2017 attendees

Wondering what you can expect to see when you come to Westiva X? Glad you asked! Here's a small sampling:

  • one, perhaps two turbocharged Festivas!
  • a 1990 Festiva LX that was purchased new in 1990 by its current owner. This Festiva has all the options that were available at the time!
  • a couple of stock Festivas
  • perhaps a Festiva that has being converted into a tow vehicle for a  cross Canada road trip... they'll be 6 weeks into their trip when they get here!
  • a military themed Festiva with a 1.8l Ford Escort GT engine!
  • a few mountains
  • a pond
  • perhaps a Suzuki Swift or two... and who knows what else 
See you at Wedge Pond!
