British Cars By The Sea 2015!
This is one of my favorite shows of the season. Beautiful venue on the lawn at Harkness State Park in Waterford, CT, Long Island Sound on the horizon, perfect summer day (nary a cloud in the sky!), and always a wonderful turnout of British Iron! Featured Marque this year, I believe, was Vintage Triumphs, and you will see some great ones further down the page.
I make no pretenses about trying to cover this show in its entirety. The pics that follow are simply a select few that I particularly liked, and I will be the first to admit that I have some biases in this crowd. If you would like to see a more complete photo shoot of the day, I recommend that have a peek at my friend Joe C's flickr page*.
Lousy shot... but there were a bunch of British motorcycles lined up at the head of the field.
Mini Club car.
Morgan 4. .... and you can see some of the ash frame.
A Mini show without a Union Jack roof would just not be complete!
When Land Rovers were.... well, Land Rovers!
For Rob Siegel!
OK, I have soft spot for Jags. This is an XK150S.
Oh, yeah. And E-Types. The drop heads are gorgeous, of course, but.... I also love the hard tops. And BRG. Note the V12 badge. ;)
Despite being around 50 years old, the design is.... timeless.
My friend Josh's RHD Mark II.
Bond. James Bond. ;)
This was my favorite take-away from today's show. New to me. Lights used during WWII blackouts in the UK.
Featured Marque: Triumph.
Here is my ride to the British Car show today:
Here is a closer pic of Joe's '02, with mine in the background. We were both at the show today, but I didn't see him. These shots were taken as I was heading home.
