This is a 1959 Austin-Healey Sprite - fondly known as a "bugeye" or a "Frogeye" in the UK. I owned a 1958 for ten years. It was really in bad shape. I had to re-wire it, make new brake lines, install new brake pistons, install a new clutch and much, much more. The engine was good, and I did get to drive it, but it was never going to look like this little beauty. This phot was taken at Bronte Park at the 2013 British Car Day.
These all Austin-Healeys too, but these are 3000s. There were a lot more of these in attendance than Sprites. These in turn were greatly outnumbered by MGBs and Triumphs.
An interior shot of an Austin-Healey 3000. This one is really immaculate and those look like original seats. This owner must own a time machine!
Some vintage Land Rovers at British Car Day at Bronte Park. I love these. They are pretty well indestructible. The ones from the 1950s often have no panels covering wires or ducts and hoses, but it's part of their inescapable charm. Queen Elizabeth owned and drove one of these herself at one time. I don't know. Maybe she still does!
A Lotus Eleven quietly tucked away in the Lotus paddock - there are not very many of these around. The car was originally designed by Colin Chapman with an 1100 cc Coventry Climax engine (aerodynamic body designed by Frank Costin). All I know is, it is a work of beauty!
This is a Devin - I'm not sure from what year, but it is incredibly beautiful. I believe they were very early fibreglass kit-car bodies and were installed over Triumph, MG and Austin-Healey frames and drive trains. You gotta love the wire wheel combination!
Triumph Spitfire - another one of my personal faves (I owned a blue 1975). It is one of the best handling (if under-powered) sports cars and undeniably sleek and gorgeous.
Not exactly British, but seeing this many DeLorean DMC-12s is definitely newsworthy. The car has such a unique history!
