British Car Day Bronte 2016

After a week of yes and no weekend rain weather reports, the weekend finally came. Rain pretty well all day Saturday but then it all cleared up and dried off for Sunday's annual British Car Day in Ontario,Canada's Bronte Creek Provincial Park.
After a last minute early morning decision I headed out there to be the third Crewe car arrival.





This year's count was almost a thousand British cars of ALL shapes and sizes with a great turn out of RR and B cars - some we had not seen before.

A number of 'SZ' series cars:











The 'SY' cars here:







And the famous one...



Some Corniche DHCs.







'Clouds, Wraith, MkVIs and R-Types......









One Goodwood car.





Oh, and the '80s 'competition'...



And the silly stuff..
We have to show the 'silly stuff'. I love to see cars like these.





And some not silly at all.



What a great way to end the summer car season.
Here's to next year. The third Sunday in September as always.
Be there....


By the way, I got third place in the Bentleys. Don't what beat me - don't care.
Third.

Earl's Grey T

It's always interesting when you can find something significant in a car's history.

Here's a VERY special 1967 Bentley T.



Ok, so it's actually blue, not grey.....

Onto the story:
Earl's Court in London. Home of the Motorshows many years ago.



Back in 1967:





Back then Rolls-Royce and Bentley actually had separate stands.
Two Bentleys. One LHD and one RHD on display in 1967.
Rippon Brothers Ltd. originally ordered a Sand over Sable Bentley T for the show but then changed the order. Note the bit at the bottom saying 'Earl's Court Show'.
Here's the amendment:



A quick stroke of a pen....
Then the official order showing the Astral Blue and blue leather:



Well, that RHD car recently turned up on Ebay U.S.A. (now sold). 
Even sporting it's original 1967 Huddersfiled number plate. MCX666F







With it's blue leather interior.







With wonderful period Paddy Hopkirk Accessories door mirrors. 



What an amazing conversation piece for any car event.
An Earl's Court Car.
A gorgeous car too.

Casa Loma

I had to post this.



The 'new' Old Thing outside Toronto's famous Casa Loma's stable building.





Lucky horses.

But apparently there is a small old car collection in that building.

My photos are just the stables.
Check out the site for Toronto's famous castle.

Bentley Chasing.

I often seem to creep up on modern cars minding their own business.



Some notice that my car is the same brand as theirs - many don't.



Sad...
