    Is anyone else planning on going to British Car Day?
    I'm planning on going in the morning if the weather holds.

    Is it the car show or just a gathering?

    Still trying to decide between this and the BMC event (or neither if it is raining). The next couple of weekends are why I love Spring/Summer, more choices for car events than there is available time.

    That hasn't stopped you from entering your German owned/British manufactured car in British car shows. :biggrin5:

    A gathering I might attend. A car show I'm not interested.....the other banter I'm staying out of.

    OK, then they have their heads up their butts. :D

    I'd bet that they don't have a pretty ribbon for a logo either!

    Not sure about heads being butted. The club name always seemed kind of odd to me too.

    I had that beautiful BMC rosette on the corner of my MG's windscreen. Always liked it.

    It's usually a fun time so long as the weather is not horrid.

    That's because it is STILL part British...and, YOURS is...WHAT? Besides, I always tell the so-called purists that, "if Rover had not gone under, the Mini would STILL be all British".

    This is silly, cars are now international in origin.

    Get over this nationalistic BS. We're car gals and guys for the most part. We appreciate vehicles of all types.

    You are 100% correct, which is why I take the time to put together the list of car events that people can enjoy regardless of what they drive.

    I find it completely laughable that someone would even make such a stupid comment about going to a car event.

    I wouldn't have bought my MINI had it not been made in the UK.
