Calling All British Cars

Hi everyone,

This is just a reminder that The Third Annual British Car Week kicks off on 
Monday, May 24, and continues throughout the week.  Be sure to make an extra 
effort to get your little British cars out on the roads, and drive them 
whenever possible during this week.  This is our chance to show off our 
little prides of joy to the rest of the world in unison, and promote our cars 
and hobby.  

If you're not quite sure what this week is all about, below is a brief 

British Car Week is an annual week celebrated during the last full week of 
May, commemorating British cars and their owners.  It is a time when owners 
of all British marques can get their cars out on the roads in their corner of 
the world, and give them exposure to the rest of the population who may not 
often get a chance to feast their eyes on these great machines of the past.  
By doing this, we can somewhat recreate the days when these cars were a much 
more common sight on the world's roads.  Hopefully this idea will become more 
and more popular well into the next century, so these cars will have a 
continued interest for years and years to come.

I have an eleven year old son and a thirteen year old daughter, and I am 
forever being reminded how little their generation knows about these old 
British cars.  Many of their friends have never heard the names Sunbeam, 
Singer, Hillman, Riley, Morris, or Morgan, let alone MG, Triumph, or 
Austin-Healey.  They've had very little exposure to these cars during their 
lifetime, so it's no wonder.  But I do know one thing for sure, when they see 
and hear these cars, they certainly take notice, and want to know more about 

Special thanks to all the people who have devoted their free time to help 
promote this idea!  Your enthusiasm for these cars is unsurpassed, and your 
help will always be appreciated.  Have a safe and fun driving season!

Feel free to pass this information on to others.

See you on the road.....
