Last weekend held a bit of a surprise in Danville California, as the San Francisco chapter of the Mini Owners Club of America and the Blackhawk Museum hosted the All British Motor Show.
Thanks to these two groups, visitors were able to get up close and personal with several notable examples of British engineering. The show featured everything from a parade of Minis and all their variations, several MGs, Morgans, Jaguars, Morris’, and Lotuses, and even a small group of Marcos’. The fact that I had never seen a Marcos in person before made the occasion all the more special.
I also took a quick trip inside the Blackhawk Museum, where several automotive exhibits have been moved around or put into storage. Gone was the Gulf-Mirage M1 from my first visit, as well as the Alfa Romero B.A.T. Prototypes. But present was the enigmatic Tucker 48 and the arresting Ghia Gilda Streamline X styling exercise, a jet-powered vision of the future from the past.
