Baie D’Urfe Car Show a British Treat

I did manage to get to the Baie D’Urfe car show this past weekend, and I’m glad I did. While it’s not a huge show—I’d say there were just over 100 vehicles—there were quite a few I hadn’t seen before. If you like British cars, then it’s definitely a good show because probably 35-40% of the cars there, if not more, were British. Most of those were pre-1970.

There was plenty of parking for spectators, and food vendors and live entertainment on site. And the cars! Everything from a 1932 Hupmobile to a 1990 Caterham Seven, with lots of variety in between, including a 1967 Vanden Plas Princess 4 litre R, which I’ve never seen before. Hope to have more photos up sometime in the next couple of weeks, once the office cools down (we're having a heat wave).
