All British & European Car Day

Our 27th Annual Exposition Sunday, May 22nd, 2011


Thanks to all who attended in making this a smashing success despite being moved from original location 24 hours prior to event, overcast skie, and threat of rain. In fact, most of you stated you like Dreyfuss Club point better! So do we. It has the hard surfaces (in case of rain), beautiful view of the lake, continuous breeze, and shady, grassy surroundings plus picnic tables and trash facility. With a few tweaks, this will be an awesome site for next year.

You donated 72 NEW pair of shoes making our cumulative total 1,034 pairs of shoes collected and $2,605.50 for Shoes for Orphan Souls. You have no idea how much happiness a pair of new shoes brings to a distressed child! Thank you for your generosity.

The Cadette/Senior Girl Scout Troop 1849 will be busy collating personal comfort kits for residents at the Ronald MacDonald House in Dallas. Thanks for all those new, hotel size toiletries. They also filled up the back of my Metropolitan!

Car Clubs

This year the clubs that attended were: sponsoring club Jaguar Owners Association of the Southwest, Central Oklahoma Jaguar Association, Ferrari Club of America, Italian Car Club of the Southwest, Jaguar Drivers Club of North Texas, Lone Star Alfa Romeo Owners Club, Mini Owners of Texas, Metroplex Mini's, Morgan Club, North Texas Norton Owners Association, Red River Triumph Club, Rolls Royce Owners Club, the Texas MG Register, and the Texas Region Sports Car Club of America.  


Everyone did a fabulous job of parking their trailers in the designated area and unloading show vehicles to drive into Dreyfuss Club. Concerned with cyclist and pedestrian traffic, we did limit spectator drop off and parking was at Stone Tables. Next year, we already have a solution to allow more spectator parking without the half mile hike.

1967 Daimler Ferret
3rd Place - Other British & European
Quite an attraction at the show!
