The first British Motoring Festival took place on Saturday, July 24th at the Kings-Edgehill School grounds in Windsor, Nova Scotia.
It was a great car show, with a wonderful setting, beautiful weather, well-organized events, and very good participation.
The array of British vehicles was wonderful … Jaguars, Triumphs, Austin-Healeys, MGs, were all well represented, with some Landrovers, Rolls-Royces, Sunbeams, Morris’, Daimlers, Vauxalls, Morgans, Austins and Fords adding to the mix.
The oldest, and might I add, rarest of the vehicles there was a 1937 HRG 1500. Beautifully restored, it is on of only 16 made of this model. It attracted lots of attention, and inquiries.
I met some great people there, and I managed to get a couple of sketches done too.
If I could have one addition to the event, it would be to have other British vehicles, such as trucks and motorcycles.
I’m looking forward to next year already!
