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 III

This is Billy Meikle's 1967 Sunbeam Imp

He was trailering in both in the morning as the deluge was happening

I wonder if his carpets were in danger du to deluge
