Throw in MD, VA, DE

Missing a couple in PA:

5/30. Meeting of the Marques. Home Up through last year, this was a Brit only show, and a nice, medium size show. Starting this year it will be open to all euro marques. I don't know how they're going to pull that off, because they always filled the available space, and there is no room to expand in its current location. If you go, get there early.

7/18. Schenley Park in Pittsburgh. Vintage racing and show. Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix Association | British Car Day

In VA:
4/26 Alexandria. Britain on the Green. Capital Triumph Register Home

In DE:
5/2. British Car Day in Lewes, DE. Cars must be MY 2000 or older. Up until last year all newer cars were allowed, but they've run out of space. Great location. info: [email protected]

10/3 Brits Invade the Capital. Dover. Small show. First was last year. should be a bit bigger this year. British Car Club of Delaware - Homepage

Maybe the biggest BCD on the east coast:
6/7. The Original British Car Day (32 year). Lilipons Water Gardens in Adamstown, MD. CCNEMGTR

6/20. British Car Show at Sunshine Grill, Fork, MD. Small show, but absolutely GREAT roads to get there. Maryland Car Shows & Free Summer Movies, Drive-In Movies- Sunshine Grill Greek Restaurant

9/26. MG's on the Rocks (originally an MG's only show years ago, now a full British Car Day). The Rocks State Park, Harford County, MD. MG's of Baltimore - Home

10/26. Brits By the Bay. Anne Arundel County MD. Full details not yet published. Great location in a State park right on the Chesapeake Bay.

Choices, choices...

"The worst part of most of these shows is that the cars just sit there!!"

Understood, but depends on how you look at it. Can go to summit point in early May for vintage racing, and many of these kinds of cars will be there. At these shows, it is still good fun to look at the cars, speak to the owners who have lovingly restored them. There are some great stories behind a lot of these cars, their owners, and the restorations.

At this particular Alexandria show on 4/26, the perenial Lotus class winner is a guy (and his wife) who shows up in a Lotus 7, Series 1 or 2, that I don't think has had a single bit of resoration done, just whatever is/was needed to keep it going. Great car to look over to understand Chapman's thinking.

In another thread Serpent wrote, re the two shows on 4/26 (Brits on the Green in Alexandria and mostly-Tuner cruise in at College Park):

"no, be sure to bring it to the University of Maryland Spring Meet for Charity in College Park, MD on 4/26."

I went to the CP show last year, 3 Lotus (and I don't think they were all there at once) and 2 or 3 Porsche were the most exotic cars there. Every 350Z, Civic, Accord, GTI, Celica, Mustang, Neon, STi, EVO, and S2000 on the east coast were there, though. (I've been told a million times not to exaggerate).

It was ok, but given the choice between these two shows, it really isn't a choice. I can see the cars at this show any time, every day, in every parking lot. The Brit Cars show up at a few scattered shows over the next few months.

Granted, there aren't any NOPI girls walking around the Brit Car show...but they ARE serving Fish and Chips and there is usually a bagpipe player walking around.:shrug:

The Lotus class is always small, but last year there were I think 4 or 5 Elise, an Europa, a couple Esprits, a Seven, etc. Now, if Tim would just get his Elan running and bring it.
