Join your British car friends for a smashing day at the park. Don’t have a show car? Don’t worry!

British food, jazz, and this year, there’ll be individual marque awards in a minimum of 15 classes.

We will start placing cars on the field at about 9:00AM and the fun goes on all day! There is no preregistration and all entrants will receive a commemorative gift. The registration fee is $25 per car at the gate. Spectators attend for free.

SATURDAY MORNING BACKROAD TOUR TO THE SEA – SEPTEMBER 8th

The British Car Meet TOUR TO THE SEA starts at El Camino Park in Palo Alto – the same place as the Sunday Car Show. This is a no-cost option for people who like to drive their cars as well as show ’em. We will be sending cars off between 8:30AM and 10:30AM. A map will be provided. The tour ends at Cameron’s Pub in Half Moon Bay where we will be kicking tyres and telling tall tales well into the afternoon.

  1. Palo Alto British Car Meet’s Final Year At El Camino Park

    Dear Readers,
    It is with great regret that I must report that this year will be the last for the 30-year-old Palo Alto British Car Meet at El Camino Park.

    DON’T FRET – WE’LL STILL BE PUTTING ON THE SAME EVENT AT A NEW LOCATION!

    The park is going to be reconstructed into an emergency reservoir for Palo Alto and rebuilt using astroturf on the fields. No more car shows as oil and gas will damage the new surface.

    While this year will be our last at El Camino Park, we are still planning to provide the same show that you all have come to expect – British cars & trucks, arcane cars (international), lawn setting, jazz, proper British breakfasts and lunches and prizes in a bunch of classes. Come join us for the last waltz at El Camino Park on September 8th & 9th, 2007

    We are already looking for a new venue for 2008 and we will keep you posted in The British Car Network. We would like to thank all of you, especially the marque clubs, for 30 years of enthusiastic support and all of the fun and good cheer that you have brought to these meets and our hobby in general.

    Long live the British car and the people who cherish them ………

    Best,
    Rick Feibusch,
    British Car Network
    Palo Alto British Car Meet Coordinator
