* SATURDAY SWAP MEET - SEPTEMBER 10th
This year we are adding a FREE swap meet for British car owners
provided by O'Cconnor Classics Autos in the car park outside their
shop, 2569 Scott Blvd. in Santa Clara. From the Bayshore Freeway
(101), Take The Montague south, turn left at Scott, the very first
cross street, and follow it around to the 2500 block, look for the
industrial complex to the left. The meet will go from 7am - 11am.
This will give people the chance to do both the swap meet and the
tour. Leave enough time - El Camino Park is about 25 minutes away.
* SATURDAY BACKROAD TOUR - SEPTEMBER 10th
The British Car Meet TOUR TO THE SEA starts at El Camino Park
in Palo Alto - the same place as the Sunday Car Show. This is a no-
cost option for people who like to drive their cars as well as show 'em.
We will be sending cars off between 9:00am and 11:00am. A map will
be provided. The tour ends at Cameron's Pub in Half Moon Bay
where we will be kicking tyres and telling tall tales in the car park
well into the afternoon.
