Thank you all for making All British & European Car Day a spectacular event despite last minute venue change and cloudy skies!

Around 226 vehicles, motorbikes and scooters attended, along with fourteen car clubs and seven vendors to give us a fantastic showing of fine British, Italian, German and Swedish automobiles to admire at The Bath House Cultural Center. With overcast skies and a spring breeze off the lake, this show turned out brilliantly honoring the King Charles’ III Coronation. In typical British fashion, it began to lightly rain after 1pm.

The Numbers:

  • Jaguar was the largest class of 40 registered vehicles; new this year subgroups: Pre 1990 and Post 1990.
  • Triumph was the next largest class of 33 registered vehicles followed by Porsche (26) and Italian (25).
  • Morgan Motor Car Club displayed very British decorations honoring King Charles’ Coronation and there were some splendidly decorated MGs.
  • 47 pairs of new, closed toe shoes plus cash donations to Buckner International. This was our lowest count in 19 years 🙁

Next Year:

1st Sunday in May – May 5th, 2024
