Time for my favorite car show of the year - the British Car Festival. This Sunday 9/9 at Harper college in Palatine. Hundreds of British cars from just about every british make, and just about every road going lotus model. I can almost guarantee that there will be several cars you've never seen before and probably a couple you've never heard of. And the weather is always perfect.

If the weather is nice I think I might go and check this out, granted I'm not sure if I want to pay to show my car...

Says 74 and sunny and Bears don't play til 3:15. It's a GREAT time and gets an awesome turnout. Bentleys, Rolls, Jag, Aston, Triumph, Gt40 ( kinda British), DeLorean, MG, Mini, Lotus, Sunbeam, Morgans, Allard, Austin Healy and even some TVRs!

My highlights are the vintage Astons, the Allards, the beautiful Austin Healy Silverstone, the Morgan Aerosport and the guy with the shortened, yes shortened Mini. It's like 3 feet long!

It's really more of a vintage kinda vibe - the newer cars are the Loti, Aston, Bentley and a few Jags. Most are vintage.

I'll be there - with the Moke!

It's a great place to go for memorabilia - hats, stickers, tshirts, etc.

Rob - definitely worth your time!

So I have two questions...
- Can we register at the door? Or do you have to do it online?
- Is this one of those events where you have to stay till the end or can you leave any time?

Yeah, sorry, had to catch a plane. Nice car(s), and I love the wrap rich! The Xj220 was nice to see too.
