All British & European Car Day

Our 31st Annual Exposition Sunday May 3rd, 2015 at White Rock Lake Park

Join us for our annual celebration of British and European vintage motoring. Bring any British or European car or motorbike, driver or show vehicle over 25 years old to compete for trophies determined by popular voting. This is a fun, family friendly day relaxing at the park, picnicking and visiting with other antique vehicle aficionados.

For the 11th year in a row, ABCDE will be supporting Shoes for Orphan Souls so please bring a pair of NEW shoes (adult size and closed toe) or more to donate.

Rain or shine, we'll be there. Dreyfuss Club Point has concrete parking in case it rains, and show field for that lovely grassy effect. For weather forecast at White Rock Lake Park click here. Don't forget to bring your chair, sunscreen, bug spray and umbrella!
