The weather was nice, the scenery beautiful.
As the event name implies, most of the cars on display were British. Austin Healey and Triumph both were very well represented:
The first car that caught my attention was this gorgeous 1959 Austin Healey 100.
But alas, I had to two-time the 100 for this 1970 Austin Healey 3000. Nice, huh?
The owner of this 1963 Triumph TR3 almost lost it....to ME! (Yes, Grand Theft Auto briefly crossed my mind.)
I'm sure this little Triumph GT6 was quite a screamer back in its day. I'd love to have it, although I really don't think the white shows it off to its fullest.
Nice Spitfire. (OK, I hate to get picky, but see those two torpedoes sticking out front? That's what happens when the government gets involved in car design. Shame on them! (Robert....think the owner will take the hint? :)
My two favorite Jaguar's being shown were this XK150....
....and this XK140. I think I prefer the older 140.
Lots of nice MG's present too, like this pre government-rubber-bumper-mandated MGB....
....and this fine MGA, complete with iguana hood ornament. (A factory option?)
And of course, everyone loves Mini's.
A couple of nice ones, despite the non-stock wheels.
I had never seen an original Mini Countryman before this. Interesting.
At the extreme other end of the spectrum were the Rolls Royce's.
Join me for a picnic? I'll bring the bubbly. ;)
I'm a fan of Morgan's.
This one in British Racing Green would look much nicer if my name was on the title.
And don't forget, the show title mentioned European cars, too.
I fully expected to see The Saint jump in this Volvo P1800 and fly away, Mrs. Peel at his side. (Look it up.)
This was a show-stopper for me: A 1938 Peugeot 402. I've never seen one before, and probably never will again.
French cars are....how should I say this?....odd. Example: The headlight placement on the 402.
Of course, the British have had their eccentric moments, too, such as with this 3-wheel Reliant Rialto.
Car people do have a sense of humor!
This Nash Metropolitan was of interest to me only because it's the type car I learned to drive in. It was so small, at 9-years old I could still see over the steering wheel, reach the pedals, and shift the 3-on-the-tree. *good times*
Oh, yes....Italian. Alfa Romeo Spyder. :) And....
You knew I'd somehow slip in a Fiat 500, didn't you? (Pay attention Joan Perry :)
And finally, another in the obscure category:
A 40's era (?) Rover.
I'm hoping this was a "one-of-a-kind".
This is enough for now. I'm burning daylight. Hope you enjoyed. :)
Late edit for JoeH:
There was an MG TF there, too. (Oops...the license plate says TD. My bad.)
