Here are some pics from the show last weekend. I realized, I was too busy drinking Bass and Newkie Browns I wasn't taking good photos....

Enough talk here we go...


Mum's car with the bonnet open. 1 of 527 Limited edition Majestics built in 1990. Surprised I didn't take more pics but it was tight parking here.


While it started as a Brit car show 5 or 6 years ago, they've expanded to accept Euro cars too.
Fiat 500 new and old.


This Bug won oldest car entered in the show. 1950s forget the exact year. It was sweet.


Probably the nicest early Jag sports there, but the owner just bought it and didn't know what the "S" on the door was for. A total tool with $$, he lost my vote as it was popular choice only for awards.




2006 Ford GT Heritage. Factory limited edition. They had several 'STAR CARS' that were'nt supposed to compete with the others.



This car was a factory works car built in 1932. This car won the 1934 Monaco GP, driven by Guy Moll and was later given to Tazio Nuvolari as payment for wages they owed him at the end of the season. This car was also run by Enzo Ferrari as he was team manager for Alfa at that time and they had run out of money. When he drove it out, it sounded really throaty ")


1948 Healey Westland. 1 of 1. In 1948, this Healey was shipped from Southampton, England, on the Queen Elizabeth that sailed on Feb 5 1948 sent to Fergus Motors in New York City. Donald Healey and his son Geoff drove this car from New York City to Los Angeles, California. Their journey was reported in the English magazine The Motor complete with photos showing highlights of the trip. They included stops with potential Healey dealers in Detroit, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, San Antonio and Phoenix, before arriving in California. The trip required 10 days with an average of over 300 miles per day.


1961 Mark IX Jaguar Saloon.


1958 D-type Jaguar.
This car was the third of only four ever made and is the only one in the United States.

This car was built for John Ogier, who loaned it to David Murray at Ecurie Ecosse. It raced for several years at Ecosse and has been driven by the likes of Flockhart, Sanderson, Bueb, Ireland and once by Jimmy Clark.

It moved to South Africa and then back to England and eventually to the United States in 1991.

The car's current owners purchased the car in 1993 and since then has undergone a full racing restoration.




best pic I took all day



Cool Sunbean Tiger, won most potential....It looked done to me!


Awesome TR250 wond best Triumph up to 1968.


Triumph 1800

Dig the funky rumble seat with it's own windshield

Awesome pics! You're Mom's car looks great!

I really like the TR250. I can't remember seeing those turn signal/side chrome spears on other TR's. Will have to look.

I also like the little Elan. Pete Egan did a great article on touring in an Elan in a recent Road and Track. Always enjoy reading about cars I'm too fat to fit in. Wink

Thanks again for posting!

1961 Mark IX Jaguar Saloon.

My dad had a 1959 mark IX, it was only a year or so old, He was waxing it, and i tried to help him,.only i started to use the lid of the can of wax,. i think the old man would,ve killed me had i not been only two and a half years old,. ,.i remember the car had a manual floor shift, and i can still hear my mother squawking as we were flying down the "M" something highway,. , the car was much faster than most other cars at the time,.in fact jags were used by the cops,.

Nice looking Jag that your Mom has and I always liked that year car.Dont know exactly what it is but I think it has to do with the way the front and rear
fenders are shaped.Those big ass headlights ruin the front end though.
IMHO

I like the Sunbeam Tiger. I've never seen one in person, but I recognized the picture from all those cars I've seen in Hemmings Motor News.

I once had a chance to buy a 1961 Jaguar Saloon. It was for sale a hundred yards from the house. A friend of mine talked me out of it. He explained to me that I needed a reliable, inexpensive to repair, daily driver. He was right, of course. But that Jaguar looked cool.

Okay part 2....the order is a bit out of whack (I don't like the way my camera uploads but anyway)


New Aston Martin SEDAN only $213K and you can have one. It was niiiiiiiice.


New this year were the bikes. Some pretty cool stuff there.


I loved the windshield on this Norton. So sleek in a 1970s way


Jaguar XK175 ltd edition of 175 units for Jag's 75 year anniv. It was avail to lease for only $1800 a month affraid That's two wagons a month in my book! lol


LOVED this 1968 Mk III Spitfire. Nice Lady owns it, got it new as her High School Graduation presentl! Paint is original she said. She still looked alright, so she musta been ultra hot in '68.


Flash Gumby's 1969 MGC in BRG holding court in a sea of MGBs.


I see now why his name is Flash. I had to keep my shades on to take this shot!


Only bugeye in attendence. I used to hate these little Healeys but now I secretly want one.


Ah my love, the big Healey. This is an early BJ8 convertible (year younger than mine)


two black beauties here. The paint was phenomenal on these cars


Never saw a factory hardtop before. Looked hot in the FL sun.


This model is a BT7 and was the very model prior to mine (BJ7). Healey jumped around alot. Differences between this and mine are the tri carb vs dual setup I have (larger carbs though), convertible vs. roadster but yet they carry the same Mark II name plate, lol.


The show was not without a longroof or two.


I dug the tagline Smile


Taxi!! 1980 Austin vareity lot's of leg room in the back


1925 Alvis. Won oldest car in the show. 2 owner, 1 family car, the owner drove it to the show over 70 miles from Miami!!


Little Austin Speed runner. No history is known about this car (what the placard said)


Best in Show, 1928 Bently. Awesome car!


More semi-longroof action. Father son Mini Clubman. Owners cloned the new one to look just like the original




Loved this big old Rolls


MGA anyone?






I believe this is a 375 MM, but not 100% sure. In Florida you can register a plate from the car's year of manufacture, so the '54 plate gives some info.


mmmmm E-type sexy....


prettiest e-type coupe I've ever seen, perfect condition



More German awesomeness


Woo Hoo longroof


trio of TR-6s


Aerial Atom FTW!


Flash Gumby heading home with a sunburn Smile

That show needs flames. Cool stuff though. Even if I don't understand why on earth anybody would want a certain car, I dig seeing them being well loved and preserved for future generations of entusiasts.
