Toronto Triumph British Car Day

It was a great day in September. Sunny and warm, it just could not get any better. Here are some pictures I took, there are lots of them. If anyone has problems viewing them let me know; I can figure something out.

Arriving at BCD, we were greeted by a Mini leaving and a bicycle entering. There is one good thing for those taking admission, there are no loonies or toonies to cause or aggrivate back and counting problems. :-)

Nigel gets the first picture because he carried me here

Joe Mirizio brought his '67 Mini

Andrew McLean's 1980 Rover Mini

Owen Tipple brought his '74 Austin Mini all the way from Burlington

This one may not be everybody's cup of tea. They've been shortened, chopped, convertibilized, and engine swapped. But I've not seen any that have been converted to a three wheeler.

Dave Allen was smitten by this '64 Mini Cooper S owned by Rachel and Andy Nelson of Grimsby

The 1071 cc engine all original to production in April '64

In behind the sliding side window is a very basic interior.
The heater was the only option.

One of the rareities with this car is the 120 MPH speedometer, they were normally 130 MPH

In my humble opinion, the world needs more Imps. This one 1967 Imp belongs to Billy Meikle of Oshawa

This is a 1992 Carbodies Fairway Driver (London Taxi) owned by Gord Welham of Smithville. After looking at it my thought was, "why would anyone want a traditional North American Minivan."
