HEARD INSTINCT: Vancouver International Auto Show executive director Jason Heard’s blood contains more than father Phil’s Y chromosome. There’s gasoline, too. Heard Sr. has been involved with automobiles since 1990, when he launched Vancouver’s Molson Indy races as general manager. He’d already staged boat, floating-boat and RV shows. Inheriting that know-how, Jason began staging successive design exhibitions in 2004. Having formed Heard Productions Inc., father and son operated the Collector Car Show and Auction. The New Car Dealers Association of B.C.’s annual car show then retained them. They’ll likely go full throttle for next year’s its 100th running.
