And another great show/gathering it was. While we had a bit of light drizzle late in the morning, the weather otherwise cooperated (okay, okay, it was overcast until late afternoon, but that kept the temperature down) and a large crowd thoroughly enjoyed the collection of about 200 British cars.
Not surprising considering its status as the featured Marque, but Jensens dominated the field. As part of the annual confab of the Jensen East group, we saw 20+ Jensen-Healeys, 5-6 Interceptors, three immaculate 541s and a ’35 Jensen Shooting Break “woodie,” which I believe won the Best of Show trophy (well deserved!). Elsewhere on the field at Creve Coeur Lake Park, the usual large number of Triumphs, MGs and Jaguars, as well as several Austin-Healeys (primarily Bugeyes/Frogeyes), Lotii, new Minis and some oddities, including two pre-WWII Rileys (!). For whatever reason, the original Minis didn’t turn out this year, but we did have two Mini Mokes on the show field.
The event organizer, the MG Club of St Louis, did itself proud once again this year, putting on a smashing event. Our thanks to their membership for their hard work as they certainly delivered.
