Went to the Original British Car Day on Sunday at the Lily Pons Water Gardens in Adamstown, Md. Great show w/ a great mix of all things British. What was really impressive was there were 5 TVR in attendance with 3 diffrent models. The marque was represented with a 280i, a 3000s and 3 2500M's. One "M" was a beautiful V8 conversion, very nice. I go to a lot of car show and it's rare to find TVR's but with three diffrent models represented it was nice.
Now being a fair weather car show guy, I was distracted with the AM forecast (I'm going, I'm not going yadda, yadda, yadda)and forgot my camera. If anyone else was there please post some pics.
Great showing of TVR's, always a hit w/ the public.

"Back in the day" when that show was in Bowie, we often had 35 or so TVRs, usually second in number only to the MGB fleet. Where ARE all those cars and people these days??

Jesse,
Don't know where everyone is these days. We struggle to get that many to OOW.
But it was still nice to see 5 TVR's at the show.

Only took a couple of shots in the T series area. Wanted one of Dan's TC special racer. Did you see the 1935 RHD Dodge 4-door vert that won 2nd in other brit? And the Honda Civic with the Triumph badges?

The Dodge is owned by the manager of the local NAPA. He was holding out on me with that.Our buddy got a first with the black XK120 with the wire wheels... A couple of the TVRs were cars that passed through my shop years ago. Nice to see them still around. Now if we could find the other 30 cars....
