THE PANHANDLE BRITISH CAR ASSOCIATION will present our 26th Pensacola British Car Show on April 20th-21st, 2018, 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. 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.

Next Year's Featured Car: Triumph TR6

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.
Schedule of Friday 4/20/2018 events:
  • We had a group tour of the Restoration Shop of the National Museum of Naval Aviation at NAS Pensacola. This is a "behind-the-scenes" tour that is not open to public viewing. Those interested and previously signed up will meet at the front desk of the museum at 12:30pm sharp (Friday). Please wear long pants and closed shoes (no sandals). Allow time to travel to NAS Pensacola and pass security.

    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:

  • The Welcome party and dinner will again be held at The Museum of Commerce, 201 E Zaragossa St, Pensacola, FL 32502. This is very close to our new show location, Seville Square. The doors open at the Museum of Commerce at 5:00 pm with activities starting by 6pm. The entrance is the ramp door on the north side of the building.
