    ABFM Portland

    Continuing its tradition of being the largest (?) in north America, the Portland All British Field Meet had 800 cars... and the weather was nice.
    For me, a record 17 Bugeyes (two fun but annoying trailer-queens up from California to win awards - still, fun to look at). It was also "Mini" year, and Paddy Hopkirk was there signing posters, T-shirts, whatever ($10 a pop). He's now 86!

    Weird... they're now appearing as attachment! Maybe too large? I posted the same as the Paddy Hopkirk one. [though I can see them] I may have fixed them by reducing the size now.
