There is always a British Marques section at the auto show and it is a must visit for us. Even though the Jaguar’s and Bentley’s had their own separate and larger sections from the British Marques grouping, I’m including a couple of them here with their fellow countrymen.
In order of appearance:
1937 Bentley Derby, 1969 Jaguar XKE Fixed Head Coupe, 1955 Sunbeam Aphine, 1948 MGTC (manufactured May 1947, registered in India in the 1970’s), a MG next to a 1972 Mini Cooper that’s next to an Astin Martin (possibly a Lagonda, not sure), 1954 Austin Healey 100
Red appears to be a popular color doesn’t it 🙂

Nice! I always loved the Jaguar XK-E. Even Harold’s mod of an XK-E into a hearse was way cool!
Harold and Maude! It’s a movie. Look up Harold’s XK-E it’s cool. I think you would like the movie if you haven’t seen it.
Never seen the movie but I did look up the car…interesting!
Yes it is.
I am always amazed at how such a thriving car industry could fail in an entire country…
The cars had bags of character, but lacked somewhat in reliability. I remember my dad heating up the spark plugs in the oven on cold mornings, then borrowing my mums oven gloves to put them back in the engine and start up the car before they cooled too much 🙂
By the time the reliability issues had been sorted – it was too late.
Plus they tended to rust in the showrooms….
yes – didn’t help – did it?
That’s going some…
Darn shame too, huh? Now that’s a story about starting up the car – wow!
Many more where that came from 🙂
a very beautiful cars!
Congratulations for your blog.
many greetings 🙂
Great set of images. The 1948 MG is my favourite 🙂
I thought you might enjoy this set.
I did – thank you!
Wonderful, Teri, although I think I best not take the Jaguar out for a spin. It’s far too expensive a car for me to learn how to handle that long front end. I had a hard enough time with my nose. 🙂
