2011 British Car Show

The 2017 British Car Show was the 37th such event. The first one I attended was the 2011 British Car show. This website did not exist in 2011, so the photos were never posted. Its interesting to see many of the same cars are still attending the show. Many of these are now sporting classic registration as NSW has adopted a workable system. The W.O. Bentley that I admired this year was also in attendance in 2011, along with another car. In addition, there was a nice display of Jensen Interceptors, something missing in 2017. The Daimler display was also […]

The great shed tour of 2016

As you go to car shows and car club events, you realize that there are many more big car collections out there than you would expect. Not just celebrities like Jay Leno, but people who live in the same city as you who have extensive and interesting car collections.

The first shed had […]

2015 Rolls Royce Owners Club Concours

The event was held at Linnwood House, which is a historic house located in Sydney’s western suburbs. The House has some very nice grounds that are perfect for holding a car show.

The show was worth the trip and despite early rain had a good showing of cars. As well as RROC, the Rover Club and the Daimler club had displays on, and was able to […]

2014 ACT Terribly British Day

I had to be in Canberra today, so I swung by the 2014 ACT Terribly British Day. It was quite a nice little car show with a decent mix of British cars. I was glad to go as the Sydney show was rained out this year and I had not taken the 450SLC on a good road trip for a while.

Some of the cars I liked were a very original looking Bentley S1 Continental, a couple of nice Jaguar XK140 FHCs, and a former vice regal Rolls Royce Phantom V that took Sir William Kerr to make his announcement […]
