This is a refined show and one of my favorites. It’s not quite the Milwaukee Masterpiece, but there is an air of elegance at the Sussex Village Park this day.
|Rick always has a good time when his friends, Bill, John, and/or Paul,|
check out the cars with him.
Because we won’t be attending the show this coming weekend, I’m posting some past photos. Since many cars return year after year, one might see some of these lovelies on Father’s Day 2012. A car doesn’t have to be a classic (more than 20 years old) to be exhibited at this show – it just has to be British. However, the classics usually outnumber the new ones.
|The "Twins" - almost identical - are driven by a husband and wife team each year.|
My all-time favorite is the Morris Mini-Minor. About a half dozen or so show up every year. Nearly two of these cars could fit into today's Mini Cooper which is pretty small. I'm also a sucker for a convertible.
|Even in a small garage there would be plenty of room|
for junk if this were your car.
|Who can resist such a cutie?|
|The license plate reads "MOMS JAG."|
And then there are the unusual, one-of-a-kind vehicles their proud owners bring to the show.
|Nash Metropolitan - not an amphicar!|
|Land Rover - reminds me of a Hummer.|
If you happen to be near Sussex on Sunday, check out the show. If you're hungry, have a burger cooked by the Scouts. If you're thirsty, don't worry; the boys will show up with cold beverages in their coolers on wheels as you browse the classic cars.
