May 12th 2012
Orangeville Lions Autofest

Orangeville Ontario was the center for car of all types. Antiques, Rods, Customs, Special interest cars of all types. There was a substantial British contingent. Most were cars and members of the Headwaters British Car Club, but as usual there are many crossover members.

Venders were inside and outside. They had aftermarket parts, nostalgia, and toys.

There was also a car auction. British cars were well represented here too.

Ralph Evans of Shelburne owns this Jensen GT

The Beginnings of Brit Row

This 73 Spifire is owned by Leslie and Mary Bond.
After they went for a walk around the show I finally remembered their card and pictures from the London Classics car show.

This '62 Midget was assembled by Mike Payne.
The carbs could be bigger for his motor, and he has a Weber he could put in.
It would require some inner wing cutting, which he is not ready to do.

This is MG TD is owned by Kirk and Jack Ooijevaar of Mississauga

This 1967 Morgan +4 is owned by Linda Guthrie of Shelburne

This is Ron and Hilda Pincoe with their Triumph TR6

Alan Sands brought his Allard J2X, which he has owned since the early 60s.
It is featured in Norman Mort's Anglo-American Cars: From the 1930s to The 1970s.
He does keep his cars a long time and has fun with them. See "The Blurb" from November 2008.

Marlies Sands 1959 Mercedes 190 SL

Malcolm Stanton's 1948 MG TC

I did not expect to find this here.
It is a 1948 Bristol Owned by Dorieh Berteletti.
It was just a beautiful clean car.
And not a BMW, as some people were corrected on.

This is a 1978 Austin Mini owned by Ted and Karen Wilkins
I am not fully versed in British Pop Culture, who is the puppet?
No one was around for me to ask :o)

Thanks to Kirk Blake-Dickson for this and many corrections. The puppet is Walter, a character created by American ventriliquest Jeff Dunham and nothing to do with British culture.

There were vendors outside and inside. These ranged from newer model aftermarket products, to automotive services, to diecast cars, tin signs. The whole enchalada!

There was also a car auction held by Wheels in Motion Auctions, with good British car representation. There is no owners info just lot numbers with a brief description. I did not stick around to find bidding and sales information.

1976 Triumph TR7 "Good Driver"

1955 Austin A50 "Total Resto, Excellent Driver, Estate"
I am guessing "Estate Sale"

1975 Jensen Intercepter II "Rare, one of the best 440, Private Collection"

1963 Austin Healey Roadster "8 Cyl Auto"?
I just got this through my noggin as I wrote this up.
I had a picture of the interior, the shifter does not quite look right to be original to me. Nobody opened the bonnet to check it out.

A couple of Jaguars just behind the Auctioneers stand.

I do have a soft spot for MGA Coupes.
This 1960 could be mine with only a few obstacles in the way, money and storage.
Getting past those two, everything would be easy peasy!

This Bentley was in a little corrall with a Brass Rad Model T. I do not know why they were here. The Bentley does have a carbon fibre bonnet, and the wheels do not look quite stock.

While leaving the show I came across this Mini. It would not turn over so 4 guys gave it a push, which started it quite handily. I have no other information, he was packed up and leaving
