British Car Day
Bronte Creek Provincial. Park

The worst possible summer weather was forecast for the day. All week long Sunday was a big blob of cloud with rain and sometimes lightning.

It happened. In the morning.

I was beginning to stir when Dave Allen called to say he was not coming. I had thought it would be a wash out. But the sky was clearing and I decided to go for it. In the mighty Kia, it was supposed to get nasty in the afternoon.

What I found was sunny skies and warm temperatures. The only remnants of the morning deluge, and from what I heard there was a deluge, were some puddles, muddy matted grass, and show cars with tires and wheel wells spattered with mud.

In attendance were roughly 800 cars of all types from the loved old teddy bear types to the grey poupon set.

Cars Part II

Checking out the Midgets

This '66 Midget is owned by Robert Conn

And comes with stuffed Beefeater

Here is John-Peter Smit with his '76 Midget, Ms. Triss.
He does not need a stuffed Beefeater!

Next are the Sprites

This 1961 Austin Healey Sprite Frogeye is owned by Philip Ridge

This was my standout for the show

It definitely looks like a driver to me

This '61 Sprite, owned by Bert Raposo, looks the part of a "Barnfind"

Although it looks quite bad (I am concerned about the dogleg) it sounded like a kitten as it left the show

This '79 Austin Mini Clubman GT is owned by Dennis Meek

I had never noticed the Union Jack on the roof

Michael DeBono owns this '79 Innocenti Mini
And is crafty to boot

1976 Mini Van owned by Victor

Tony Fox with his 1962 Austin Mini Countryman

Mark Margetts 1969 Austin America Automatic

The interior

The Advert

Mike Harris owns this Hemi-Orange 1971 Austin America

This 1994 Rover Mini is owned by Robert Poulton
The luggage rack is from a Volkswagon

 

I don't know who owns this Moke
But I like it

There were some bikes that braved the day

The 1948 Hillman Minx Drop Head Coupe from QEW Luxury Motorcars was back, after missing last year's show

It is a nice looking car

Chris Young brought his 1954 Daimler Conquest

Jim and Daniel Colburne's '59 Morris Miner

It shows the mark of the morning

James, Daniel, and Rex

Rex: Wha'cha lookin' at.

Daniel with his 2nd Place plaque

Rex getting up close and personal

1949 Ford Prefect owned by Patrick McConville

Doesn't look bad from here

This a 1954 Citroen Light 15 is owned by L. Lewis
And, was built in Slough

Find the gear shift

I think this car spent some time in South Africa

This is George Found's 1958 Austin A-55 Cambridge
It is in its natural state, packed with people

Here it is in one of those rare moments with nobody in front

Guess that "Flying A"

It is Eric Appadoo's 1949 Austin A40 Devon

And him leaving after the awards
