THE PANHANDLE BRITISH CAR ASSOCIATION will present our 28th Pensacola British Car Show on April 17th-18th, 2020, scheduled to be held at Seville Square park (bordered by E.Government St, S.Alcaniz St, E.Zarragossa St. and S.Adams St), just two city blocks off E.Main St, and a short distance south-west of our previous location off 9th Ave. Seville Square is a shaded park only a few feet from the beautiful waters of the Gulf of Mexico. It's a lovely vacation or weekend paradise only walking distance to restaurants and shopping in the historic downtown Pensacola area.

The "Participants Choice Award" and Class Awards are determined by the votes of registered show participants. The "Best of Show Award" is a Judged Award. Each vehicle entered will receive a ballot and dash plaque placed in the car at noon. Voting closes at 2:00 pm and awards are at 3:30pm. There are approximately 26 classes as determined by pre-registration numbers and each class will be awarded a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place trophy as applicable. There also are several special awards and some surprise awards. This is not a "concours" show, but a chance for British car lovers to get together, display their cars and have a good time. Any car can go home with a trophy. So bring your British "ride" this year and enjoy the camaraderie.
Events are subject to change as 2020 gets closer
Schedule of Friday 4/17/2020 events:

  • NAS Museum Tour:
    PBCA member Fred is planning a visit to the National Museum of Aviation at NAS Pensacola on Friday April 17. You can either meet in the museum lobby at 11:30 or go with a caravan leaving the Grand Hotel parking lot at 11:00AM. 200 E Gregory street. We will eat lunch at the museum cafe. The caravan will enter at the West Gate. Here is a map to the West Gate. Zoom in and you can see the Museum location. If you have any questions call Fred V. 850-941-8431.

    Remember, NAS Pensacola is an active US Navy base. Visitors to the Museum who do not have a DoD ID card are required to enter and exit through the West Gate at the end of Blue Angel Parkway, NOT the main gate on Navy Blvd. Here is a link to the Navy Museum's website with instructions and directions:

  • In 2019, we had a Tour the FAA facilities at Pensacola Airport. Unknown yet if it will occur in 2020. Please note that you must be a US citizen to tour FAA facilities.
