The club had a great showing at this year’s British Car Show at the Automobile Driving Museum on June 8th with 13 members attending. In their Big Healey’s were me, Corkey Holt, Gary Jacobson, Dex Kaytis, John Hedblom, George Merino, Jay Miller and Mike Scroggie. Phil Caliva brought his "Nasty Boy", Chuck Lakowski his Jensen Healey and Tom Spangler and I had our Bugeye’s. Steve Kirby brought his beautiful 1954 Jaguar Sedan to round out the group.
After meeting at Starbucks, a few blocks from the Museum, we drove in as a group and overwhelmed the volunteers when we arrived. They decided to put as many of us that could fit inside the tent that was set up in the parking lot for the excellent British band. While this was a blessing when the sun came out around noon the band made it almost impossible to hear each other talk; but their music was great.
There were a great variety of cars that filling up the parking lot and all the spaces in front of the museum and there was a steady stream of spectators during the day.
At the end of the day the show awards were given out and Corkey Holt and I each won in the 1948-1960 Class. Me for my 1960 Black Bugeye and Corkey for his 1955 100 “LeMans”.
It was a great show with a Ruby’s food truck, music and Ice Cream in the museum snack shop.
Thank you to all the members that showed their cars, we were the largest contingent there.
