27th Annual Expo

We held our 27th Annual Houston British Motor Expo on October 15 at the Falcon Point Country Club. This was our first year to hold the Expo at this site.  The venue was great, offering a breakfast buffet starting at 7 am and serving hamburgers, chicken and hotdogs for lunch.  The weather cooperated (except for the heat) and we had a great turn out.
There were 68 cars registered.  MGs  were well represented with 34 cars, and the Triumph club turned out with 10 cars. Some of the more unusual British autos to attend this year were:
2016 McLaren 675LT
1959 Rover P4 10
1953 Arnolt-MG Bertone Coupe
1963 Triumph Sports 6
1951 Allard J2
1950 Riley Roadster
two Norton 850 Commando motorcycles

Thanks to everyone who came out and supported our club.

  1. I have to add that the HABMVE was especially nice for me because, I ran into an old college friend, (the Rover driver) and spent most of the day chatting with he and his lady friend about days of yore so to speak and the Arnolt MG driver is another old associate, this time from the business world, he and his father ran a company selling Pollution control equipment, and he used to call on me when I was at work (some nearly 20 years ago). This is the fellow that has the Heinz car, a little Mini based Riley Convertible especially trimmed out as a Heinz products giveaway prize in England, and once showed up at our function at Traders Village with the BMC service BUS as a show car. My college friend and I both started out “sporty / foreign car interest back in 1954-5 period in Beaumont, he with a Flat head, low lights Morris Minor; and me with my Split window VW bug, standard non-export version, that came with non-syncro tranny and mechanical cable operated brakes (and a rip roaring 21 HP 1098cc motor). Good time!!
