All British & European Car Day

Our 29th Annual Exposition at White Rock Lake Park  2013

Northerly winds kept the temperature in the low 70's, although the Mini and MG folks might disagree as they were right on the north shore of the lake. Despite the chilly breeze, the twenty-ninth anniversary of All British & European Car Day was a huge success with 256 registered vehicles. It was quite a relaxing day, strolling around viewing the variety of classic and modern vehicles.
