End of the Week for British Car Day

Today is the end of the week and will wrap up my coverage of British Car Day, at least for now. There were lots and lots of other great British cars on display this year and I will eventually get to all of them. Today, though, I'm showing cars by Lotus, including a gorgeous 1972 Europa Type 74, along with some DMC DeLoreans. As always, feel free to leave a comment or drop me an email at turnerbudds@yahoo.com.

Various Cars at British Car Day

In order to have enough pictures to really justify a post, today is sort of a hodge podge of cars. I have a beautiful Jaguar XK-1 along with a Morris Minor and a Metropolitan. I've also tossed in a couple of Sunbeam Tigers as well as a Porsche 928 and a Volkswagen Beetle.

50 Coolest Cars of the Last 50 Years

Road and Track has a very fun piece about the 50 coolest cars over the past five decades. This is always one of those that leave people agreeing with many but wondering why one of their favorites was left out. What do you think?

The Most Expensive American Car

I found this piece on line about the new record for the most expensive American car ever sold at auction. I thought I'd share it with you. http://www.msn.com/en-us/autos/news/first-shelby-cobra-ever-built-breaks-auction-records-at-monterey/ar-BBvQXxe?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=spartandhp

British Car Day

Every year the regions British Car Club hosts a very large get-together that features excellent models from many amazing UK manufacturers. One of the problems is that the weather, for what ever reason, tends to be a bit problematic. Fortunately for the club, this year was different and a large number of great looking cars came out.

Since the cars are set up in groups, for my coverage I'm going to bundle them together as best as possible. For example, today I'll be posting the Big Healeys and the Austin Sprites. Perhaps not the most logical combination but it allows me to post a decent number of pictures in each post.
