British Union Car Festival *lots of pics*

Hi everyone,
Once a year we have a local British Car Union Festival and over 400+ classic British cars appear. I took lots of pics of all the beauties there so enjoy!
Austin Healeys, Triumph, TVR, Morgan, Rolls Royce, Bentley, Aston Martin, Jaguar, Jensen Healey, MG, Lotus, Mini, etc. You name it, it probably was there! Couldn't believe all the rare classics local in the area!

*still need to upload Jaguar, Sunbeam, and Land Rover pics*

It was a fun show. Hot.

I bailed around 11:30 to go watch the Bears game.

Most of the cars are variations on a theme - meaning I've seen them before, but the highlights:

- the Morgan F Series Trike that Norb Bries (North Shore Sportscars) is selling. He also had the yellow Elan there.

- the Austin Silverstone - very rare and AMAZING car. Reminds me of an Allard J2X.

- The Morgan SS. That guy lives by my bro-in-law so I've seen/talked to him a bunch of times, but still an amazing car and a ridiculous head turner.

- The Mini Mini Cabriolet. Met that guy last year. It's a mini that he chopped. Took about 14 inches off it. Off of a mini. It's teeny tiny, but oh so fun.

- Always great to see TVRs too!
