Some Beautiful Brits

I continue to process photos I grabbed at a recent concours. I love British cars from the '50s and '60s, so I enjoyed shooting some very fine examples that I present here.

Didn't realise you'd seen me somewhere... I usually run around in stealth mode.

Lovely pix.

The swept back windscreen on the big Healey. Then the green Morris Minor. Our next door neighbours , when I was growing up were from Bristol, England and their first car was a green Morris, just like this. They washed it every Saturday and went on a nice country driver every Sunday. The men even wore tweed 'cheese cutter' hats, which I wanted one badly, when I was a young boy...I mean my baseball cap was fine back then...but the cheese cutter hat had an appeal.

Always wanted a Sunbeam Tiger. Saw one in '68 in a used car lot , along with an A-H 3000...both were going for $ 1800 CDN. I didn't get either and I'm afraid the ship has long sailed on those prices for a Healy 3000 or Tiger.

Beautiful. I nearly bought an MGB GT of that vintage when I was a teenager. It had a bad rear seal in the engine, allowing oil to foul the clutch. It wasn’t something I felt like fixing so I let it pass. It was a blast to drive though.

I saw and photographed some beautiful stuff that day, but I'm sure I never came across anything that would match your magnificent visage!

Hey, Les - thanks very much. I'm sure I've mentioned to you that I learned to drive in a Morris Minor convertible - it was a later model than this one (1958; designated the Morris Minor 1000) and sported a one-piece windshield. No synchro for low gear - made a great learning platform!

I also wanted a Tiger back in the day. Some years ago, we attended a concours on the Stanford campus in Palo Alto; one of the "featured marques" was the Tiger - there were around thirty examples to see.

Thanks. I toyed with the idea of an MGB roadster, but never pulled the trigger.
