High River's River City Car Club are no strangers to antiques, but their recent project, is a little different.

Car Club member Quin Shaw says, their purchase of the antique Eamon's Garage was a bargain.

"We purchased the garage for $10 in 2016, where we moved it to High River from its old home, the Stavely Ag Grounds."

Shaw says the club has just completed some concrete work for the foundation of the building, and now hopes the stucco work will go smoothly.

The Club plans to do more than just restoration, Shaw say's the club will focus on expansions.

"We're putting antique gas pumps near the entrance, as well as bathrooms."

She says the goal is to have the garage open to public for event's such as "Christmas parties, gatherings, we even have a some girl's who want to have their wedding there, they are holding off until the garage is up and running."
