A Mostly British Obsession

2008 All British Field Meet, Bellevue, Washington

JA Prestwich engine in Moggie

After visiting the air museum (see the post prior to this one) we took a jaunt to the 2008 All British Field Meet. We arrived as things were winding down a bit, a few cars were leaving…still plenty to see!

I think I’m going to start going to this particular show every other year–I prefer the Vancouver show’s venue in the botanical gardens, and you see a lot of the same cars over and over again in any case. Having said that, I encourage you to drop by one of these shows if you’ve never been, they’re an amusing afternoon out.

I’ll try to identify the cars below…obviously, I didn’t take a lot of photos of cars there were plenty of, MGs, Triumphs, Healeys, etc., etc. Let me know what I have wrong!

    See? There is no reason for me to go… I can just look at the photos you bring home. :)
