All British & European Car Day

Our 33rd Annual Exposition at White Rock Lake Park 2017

Blown away this year by the amazing variety of vehicles on the field and the cool brisk winds, the show was amazing. Thank you all for attending and using the rain field layout. Not optimal - but it works!
  • 240 vehicles on the field
  • MG largest class of 43 vehicles!
  • Added new class - Rover
  • MICRO Class for next year!
  • Vehicles came as far away from Austin, Oklahoma City, and Lubbock.

Due to the storms in Canton, The Great Australian Meat Pie Truck was not able to get through downed trees over roads to attend. Texas Burrito suffered from a broken drive shaft earlier in the week so The Butcher's Son filled in. Glad they took care of us!

MG Class lined up at All British & European Car Day

Due to heavy rains the night before, MG's couldn't park on the grassy field, so they graciously lined up on the shoulder.


Please review our Facebook page here.

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.
