Numerous examples of all the popular marques were represented. I’ll cover them as the week progresses but the included: Jaguar, MG, Triumph, Rolls Royce, Austin Healey, Mini, Morris Minor, Lotus, and Morgan to name several. Plenty of them were in exceptional mechanical condition. Dedicated owners indeed.
