Special treat for Parksville’s ‘Flyin’ Phil’

Birthday celebrated with ride in classic car

Local personality Phil St. Luke, known simply by many in the Parksville Qualicum Beach area as ‘Flyin Phil’, has turned 67 years old.

To celebrate his birthday on March 7, he requested the owners of NoExcuses Cafe in Parksville, Jordan and Cora Lea Garraway, to drive him around Parksville in their classic 1954 Chrysler Windsor.

St. Luke got his wish much to his delight. He was also escorted by friends on their motorbikes.
