British Car Days

Show / Hide Images

British Cars days of San Diego gives us a great reason to go back through an English car no matter if it was running last week or last year. 2 weeks before this show is always a challenge, and the Lucas Lord of Darkness will always show up and cast mechanical failure on us to guarantee us a headache or two.

Fortunately this year the Jaguar and Landover gave us no issues. It was a bit of a gloomy day on the bay and for some reason I think the cars preferred some Old English Weather, I for one had to drive the Jag.

This event opens up to British car of all marques and years we have DeLoreans and Mini Coppers in the club and they all show up. The Austin Healys are a treat, we get lost of Jaguars and MGs, a few Aston Martins may come out but overall just some great fun. The show setting is located at Spanish Landing close by Shelter Island for the locals who know. Its runs from 7am to 3pm has class awards and offers a Best of Show. This year we took a 1978 Land rover S3 and a 1969 Jaguar E-type both cars performed flawlessly, and showed well.

I'm sure my condition was better but the overall flavor of the Defender 90 next to us took the show. It was unrestored and in great condition it had its war wounds and battle scars but every little nick told a story of an each off road adventure and I'm sure his truck earned it all. A VERY SPECIAL Tickford bodied MG was on display and I believe that vehicle took Best in Show, among other great cars were a Cloud II Rolls Royce and a Very Special Jaguar 3.8 coupe that also won due to it immaculate restoration with a slew of others. We'll be back again next year, Scheck back in to see what we are going to bring.
