2015 Chicago British Car Festival

Story by Bruce Magers, photos by Frank Ochal

The 29th annual Chicagoland British Car Festival was held on Sunday, September 13, 2015 at Harper Community College in Palatine, Illinois just outside of Chicago.

The show is organized by a consortium of British Car Clubs in the Chicago area. It has become the premier event for those interested in British cars.

The weather was perfect - sunny and mild which obviously helped boost attendance. In addition to the vast array of stunning vehicles there was also a display of British motorcycles for those who "like their fun on two wheels". A bag piper and traditional Irish dancers helped to put the crowd in a festive mood. Numerous vendors were also in attendance offering everything for the British car fan.

Each year the show features hundreds of automobiles ranging from those in concours condition to just normal everyday drivers. This year was no exception as approximately 500 cars were gathered on the field representing virtually every marque produced in England. Door prizes and popular vote awards were presented to the lucky winners.

Award winners included Jeff & Sharon Powell with their '48 MG TC, Carl Vogel with his '54 MG TF, Mike Crowley with his '77 B, Richard Veseley with his '77 B L.E., Dino & Lisa Perez with their '95 MG RV8 and Victor L'Heureux for his "Special Distinction Tex Huxhold Award" with his '67 B.

The American MGB Association (AMGBA) was on the field welcoming old members and signing up several new participants.

If you have not had the opportunity to attend this popular event be sure to mark your calendar for the 30th annual to be held on September 11, 2016 at Harper Community College in Palatine, Illinois. For further information go to www.britishcarunion.com or www.mgclub.org .
