Autumn In the Mountains Car Show

This past weekend was our annual car show for the British Car Club. The day began foggy and cool, and cars were arriving early. It was apparent that the cancellation of shows last spring and many over the summer have left our car loving public desperate for some four wheel fun.

By the time registration closed, we had over 200 cars! All makes of British cars, along with several categories of European cars were represented.

Our little modern MINI on the left led off the category of MINIs. Most were classics from decades past.

Exotic cars like these two Lotus models got a lot of attention.

The featured marque of the show was Jaguar. We had a great showing of guests who brought the full range of classic and modern cars to enjoy. The red 1967 Jaguar S-Type is flanked on both sides with XJS models.

Several of the iconic E-types were on display made from 1961 to 1975. Many owners chose to leave the bonnets open to show off the engines.

All different colors look fabulous on the long nose shape of the E-type.

This is the first one I’ve seen in this powder blue, so striking!

I think the second largest group was German cars represented by almost two dozen Porsche models.

Modern and classic models were shown side by side.

So many of them, I had to take several photos to get them all. Several are owned by friends of ours so I had to get good shots of those.

My Sweet Babboo was impressed with a supremely expensive Dino (Ferrari) entered into the Italian cars category.

We had two Deloreans too, made famous in the Back to the Future movies. The one in the middle is a Morgan. These were in the Other British category, as there had to be three of one marque to make a separate class for judging.

The shape and design of the classic yellow Morgan on the right contrasts with the modern Astin Martin on the left.

The grey McLaren below has Butterfly doors that open vertically. Gorgeous car.

It was a beautiful day for a show. Early fog burned off around 10 am, and a sunny day in the low 70s was perfect to walk around and enjoy the many cars on display. Did you have some fun over the weekend? Are you going to outdoor activities?

    Who knew there was such a variety! Hard to pick my favorite. Went to a car show for Land Rover several years ago – not fancy but really entertaining! Some were so tiny they looked like toys! Always fun to be out and about. Hay rides and corn mazes popping up soon. “Octoberfest” was this weekend across the street at the park. Mostly libations. Thanks!

  2. I love a car show that is so specific!! We went to one a week ago that was a jumble of makes. You really see the variety of colors. Love that blue! Looks like you had a great time. Helped the hubby on Saturday at a train sale. Sigh….indoor and NOT well promoted.

    Good morning Carole, Personally I’m not into cars but the turquoise cars caught my eyes, love the color. My boys might be interested as those cars they would enjoy getting into the motors and finding out how they worked. The men in my household were more into the NASCAR racing cause my Jay worked for racing car radios and made the communications for the drivers to be able to talk to their pit crews. Jay personally made Richard Pettys radios that he would wear on his hats, I even have a picture of me wearing the hat with the radio o it. My men really loved going to the races and watching them race. Phyllis

    So much fun to see the photos of the British car show. We currently have two 1952 MGTDs & a TR4. They’ve been sitting in the barn awhile but hope to get them back up & running next year

  5. what fun ! My father and my husband were both classic car lovers. When I was growing up my dad had a 1936 Ford and a Karmann Ghia, and my husband had a bunch of corvettes and porches…I loved seeing all the fabulous cars at your show, what a turnout!
