Community members are welcome to show their modified or classic cars.
If you ask Vancouver police Chief James McElvain why crime occurs, the overarching reason is clear: It's human nature. You should be able to leave your wallet on a sidewalk and have nobody touch it, but that just isn't going to happen.
