British Car Day
Bronte Creek Provincial. Park

The worst possible summer weather was forecast for the day. All week long Sunday was a big blob of cloud with rain and sometimes lightning.

It happened. In the morning.

I was beginning to stir when Dave Allen called to say he was not coming. I had thought it would be a wash out. But the sky was clearing and I decided to go for it. In the mighty Kia, it was supposed to get nasty in the afternoon.

What I found was sunny skies and warm temperatures. The only remnants of the morning deluge, and from what I heard there was a deluge, were some puddles, muddy matted grass, and show cars with tires and wheel wells spattered with mud.

In attendance were roughly 800 cars of all types from the loved old teddy bear types to the grey poupon set.

Cars Part I

My first sight was the sea of Land Rovers

With some leaving

Big blue skies and puddles

Muddy Stag departing

Club stand. Tony Fox took me aside and instructed me to head up to registration and Sponsor St. to check out his new car.

By the way, the guy at the club stand left his wheel behind

Heading up to registration another Spitfire leaves

But first, a side trip

To this 1959 MG Magnette ZB is owned by Stu Colt

Sponsor Street and Registration

It was the 60th anniversary of the Austin A95

And, Tony Fox's newly completed A95 Countryman just fit the bill

It is immaculate all the way through

It took a lot of painstaking work to get from this state

Tony Fox and Lynda Hill. Lynda sourced out the bits and bobs except for the Bush Radio. It has been Tony's since he was a teenager!

It was also the 60th for the XK140 next to Tony

This is a 1956 XK140 owned by Andrew Lindsay

Proud owner and Co-Pilot

Tim Burgess and Jan Frolic, from Toronto campaigned this car in the recent ALCAN 5000, coming in 14th overall.

The route traced the roads north from Seattle to the Arctic Circle in Alaska

This was their home for the 9 day 7,200 drive in August's rally.

I was talking to Jan Frolic, who said she would never do it again, but then came around. She mentioned something out east, I'm thinking the Targa Newfoundland may be their next run.
According to their website, they had raised $2,600 surpassing their goal.

By the time the awards were presented, they raised some money in the bucket and received a cheque from the Toronto Triumph Club for $1000

MG TD and TF

Beautiful MG TD

Sorry, I can't tell you who owned it

This 1954 MG TF is owned by H. Jenkins

This 1949 MG TC is owned by David Holmes.
This car does have a racing history back to when it was new and raced by Tommy Hoan

Some competition history

This is a time to meet and greet

And to check out the cars

This engine belongs to Byron Warwick's 1954 MG TF

Back to dusting

Perfect pack for the day with this marine duffel

Paul Williams travelled from Eastern Ontario in this 56 MGA.
I think he may have run into the deluge

This '57 MGA Coupe owned by Brent Tyrell should be nice and dry
