Pictures From The 2013 Chicago British Car Union Festival

Here are some pictures I took at the British Car Festival a couple weeks ago (I just recently had time to edit and upload them). I have plenty more - PM if you want the link.

You must have arrived right after I left. I was parked next to Arnie's red Elise. I brought my Elise (brought the Moke last year). Left early as I had 10 people coming to my house for the Bear's game.

Honestly, the thrill has gone with that show. It's the same cars every year - a bunch of Minis, a bunch of crap MGs and some random cool stuff. Then everything else (Rolls, Bentley, et al).

Some highlights though:

- That old Boattail car parked by the Aston's was cool.

- Did you see the 'hootchie' chick? Some short little old fat guy in a DB9 had a chick with him that had little short shorts, big ass heels and a short leather jacket. She' take the jacket off and reveal a tank top showing ample bolt ons and she was 'posing' by every car. I must say, it was very bizarre. As you know, most British car show guys are old and weird and I think she was gonna give a couple of them a gripper!

- Factory red Delorean (although the bumpers and the body looked like completely different colors).

- Ken's new F Type (he had the green Esprit). He's KOMotors here on LT and has a fleet of great cars!

- The MG limo thing was cool and cray cray.

- This Morgan 3 Wheeler lives right by me. I actually saw him the day of the Geneva Concours at the gas station on 38. Quite the site to see a Morgan 3 Wheeler pull up next to a Mini Moke. Made for some good convo and quite a few pictures!



- The TVR race spec car is cool. That's there every year.

- There was a Jensen 541 (red) that was simply stunning!!! Not the exact car, but it looked like this. My favorite car there:

IIRC, it's Bob Herzog (Zog on this forum), Elan.

It's for sale.

Don't remember - I don't pay too much attention to those kinds of things unless it's someone I know. I photograph enough models that I'm kind of numb to the look-at-me! types.

Not exactly... It's Bob's, but it's a Cortina.
