The Twelveth Annual




APRIL 17, 2004

Click here for our 2005 show!

THE PANHANDLE BRITISH CAR ASSOCIATION presented our Twelveth Annual All-British Car Show on April 17, 2004, 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. As last year, this year we had a large tent at the center of the show site for shade from the late April beach sun.

For early arrivals the PROTOADS* again offered a "Red Beans and Rice" Social from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm Friday, April 16, 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 is 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 3:30pm. There were approximately 24 classes in past years and classes were determined by entries received for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place trophies. 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" and enjoy the camaraderie.

There was also Valve Cover Racing at approximately 2:00pm. Must be a British valve cover with overall length no more than 24 inches and no propulsion other than gravity.

Accommodations are available at the PENSACOLA BEACH BEST WESTERN MOTEL, (800) 934-3301, at $79.00 off beach and $89.00 beachfront. We have dusk to dawn professional security at the motel parking lot both Friday and Saturday nights. Those who mention they are with the British Car Show receive reduced rates as long as they are available.

See this link: for pictures from the show from PBCA member Vince Cooke: "Note that this is a free site, and therefore the bandwidth is very limited. Don't be alarmed if you receive a message stating that it is not available and that you should return in one hour. This occurs when the site is hit x times per time interval and exceeds the time alloted. Be patient. Turn your speakers up. Cheers, Vince"

Thank you Vince! Those pictures are excellent!
