THE PANHANDLE BRITISH CAR ASSOCIATION presented the Eleventh Annual All British Car Show on April 26, 2003, held again at Pensacola Beach, just a few feet of beach sand from the beautiful waters of the Gulf of Mexico. A lovely vacation or weekend paradise only walking distance to restaurants and shopping. An addition this year was a large tent at the center of the show site for shade from the late April intense beach sun.
For early arrivals the PROTOADS* will again offered a "Red Beans and Rice" Social from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm Friday, April 25, in the party room of the Best Western Motel, Pensacola Beach. Registration was open Friday night and from 8:00 am to noon on Saturday.
* Procrastinating Triumph Owners And Driving Society
Judging was by "People's Choice". Each vehicle entered will received a ballot and dash plaque placed in the car at noon. Voting closed at 2:00 pm and awards were at 4:00pm. There were approximately 24 classes and classes were be determined by entries received for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place trophies. There also were 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 could have gone home with a trophy. So bring your British "ride" next year and enjoy the camaraderie. There was valve cover racing. Must be a usable British valve cover with overall length no more than 24 inches and no propulsion other than gravity.
Accommodations were available at the PENSACOLA BEACH BEST WESTERN MOTEL, (800) 934-3301, at $79.00 off beach and $89.00 beachfront.
