There was lots of livestock at the recent Caledon Fair, but there were other attractions too. They included a display of a large collection of vehicles in the All British Classic and Antique Car Show.
Marlies Sands of Tottenham was showing this 1967 Morgan four-seater. She said the car was made for export, which explains what the steering wheel is on the left side.
Alan Sands of Tottenham had his 1954 Allard, one of only about 80 that were built. The car is equipped with a Cadillac V-8 engine. “They fitted them with big American engines,” he explained, adding in the 1950s, they dominated North American race circuits. “They were the cars to beat back then.”
Paul Cleary of Uxbridge was on hand with this 1978 Mini with a Yamaha motorbike engine. He’s had it two years, and said it gets about 50 miles per gallon. “It still thinks it’s a motorbike,” he said.
Stephen Lippert was showing this 1995 Rover Mini Cooper.
Mary and Paul Scherbatiuk of Rockwood were busy spiffing up this 1978 MG, which they were showing for a friend.
Vic Lewick brought this 1978 MGB from Toronto. He said it was manufactured in England, but was moved to Hong Kong, and then the U.S. He said he has the original bill of sale from 1978, written in Chinese. The car sold for $2,600 back then. The car has 46,000 miles on it, but Lewick said it’s travelled more by air and sea than it has by land.
This 1985 Jaguar was being shown by John Grant of Brampton. He’s owned the car for two years.
