    All British Field Meet - Vancouver BC 2010 - pics

    This year I managed to attend the All British Field Meet held in the lovely Botanical Gardens in Vancouver, BC, Canada. This year was their 25th anniversary a banner year for cars attending (over 600). Attendance was quite impressive as well. The honored marques where British Fords and Jaguar E-Types.

    The full gallery is located at http://www.flickr.com/photos/davesev...7624013048867/ - 125 photos so far

    a small sample below

    Aston Martin DB2/4



    Extremely nice Lotus Eleven hand built replica. You can see his build log for this and his Seven here - http://www.locostusa.com/forums/view...=36&t=3137

    Fitted with Coventry Climax engine, Sprite/Midget gearbox, Nash Metropolitan rear axle and Triumph spindles.





    The best thing about the show is all the fantastic British saloons like this lovely 1956 Austin Westminster A90 with two tone paint.



    1963 Austin Cambridge wagon



    Fantastic 1959 Sunbeam Rapier with a neat trailer. Velocette service is written on the trailer so he must a be bike fan as well. (Velocette was a British motorbike manufacturer)



    Austin Healey 100 - fold back windshield, wire wheels and a torque rich engine - fantastic car.



    Interesting 1964 Commer Van set up as a mini motor home.



    The fantastic super wedge Aston Martin Lagonda. Great to see someone keeping one is such fabulous condition.



    1930 MG M-Type

    1978 Triumph Spitfire 1500

    Some of the best cars can be in the parking like this Renault R8 Gordini outside the show. Being French it wouldn't be allowed in I suppose.



    Old and new-ish Volkswagen vans.



    Volkswagen Beetle with several period style modifications. Funky flip out front windshield.



    Morris Minor custom truck parked outside the show.



    Famous half car half boat 1966 Amphicar 770 for sale outside the show.

    Beautiful! I'll bet a good chunk of those were no rust or minimal rust to start with or survivors. Makes me wish Canada was a few thousand miles narrower. (there's not much in the middle anyway is there )

    That Cambridge wagon is quite rare, I don't believe I've seen one before...

    And what are you complaining about JP [img]<<GRAEMLIN_URL>>/grin.gif[/img] There are tons of interesting British cars in Ontario and that huge September show, there's nothing even close to it here in Alberta...
    No british car yet Taking donations
