The British Car Show has become a regular event for me and Hotshoe. It is like a cruise night, in that we see many of the same cars year after year. But we almost always see something rare too. The car count was very good this year, doubtless in part because of the superb weather. There were about 20 "big" Healeys, 30 MGA's and MGB's, 40 Triumphs and Lotuses.
|Even the parking lot is fun. Besides this very nice Giulietta (vanity plate ALFA 61), we saw some interesting 'Vettes|
and a Ferrari 430 in Fly Yellow.
|A row of Rolls.|
|At the other end of the spectrum, a Mini panel truck. Not imported to the U.S. (as far as I know), and even more rare|
than a Mini "woody".
|A rare-ish Jag XK-140 MC. The MC model featured the C-Type high-performance cylinder head, which raised the|
horsepower from 190 to 210. Either was a big number from a 3.4 liter six in the mid-1950's.
