All British & European Car Day

Our 30th Annual Exposition at White Rock Lake Park 2014

Forecasted with usually high temperatures for the first weekend in May, over 260 vehicles exhibited at the 30th celebration of All British & European Car Day. The largest class was the iconic British sportscar, the MG, celebrating their 90 anniversary. Next, the Jaguar took overall 2nd in class participation followed by the Standard Triumph class. Watch out for the Lotus Class - they've had the People's Choice Best of Show - Modern for the past two years in a row! Wasn't it nice to see those Land Rover's lined up!

You donated new Shoes for Orphan Soul and we turned them over to SOS at Buckner's shoe warehouse without counting. Oopsi. We will post the count once we hear back from Buckner. Kids more than ever need new shoes and these will most likely find new feet at www.shoesfororphansouls.org.

Below are the winning vehicles. All vehicles had to be 25 years old or more to place in Class voting. 
Please send us pictures of your winning vehicle so we may post.
