Chicago British Car Festival
27th Annual Chicagoland British Car Festival Delights Hundreds
Story by Jack Feldman, photos by Frank Ochal, Elliott Dudnick, Rich Ziolkowski, Stephanie Quirk and Steve Partman

British car owners and enthusiasts were greeted by threatening skies and strong breezes but that did not diminish the enthusiasm. Owners displayed over 500 cars and motorcycles which were appreciated by more that 1,400 British car enthusiasts. The event took place on Sunday, September 8, 2013 at Harper college just outside of Chicago, Illinois. The Festival was sponsored by the British Car Union, a not for profit organization, made up of representatives of over a dozen Chicago British car clubs.

It was an ideal day to explore other marques and meet other lovers of British cars. Vendors came from all over the country selling everything from books to rare parcels for restoration. Entertainment was supplied by bagpiper Scott McCawley, and the graceful Thistle and Highland dancers.

A special British Car Union cap was waiting for the first 500 registrants, and many automobile related door prizes were awarded. For the hungry enthusiast food vendors presented traditional delights.

The Donald M. Healey Memorial Rally on Saturday started the festivities. Awards for the winners were presented Sunday at the festival.

Mark your calendar for our 28th Annual Festival on September 7, 2014. Next year's event will again be held at Harper College in Palatine, Illinois. It is an event you won't want to miss. Be sure to watch our website at www.britishcarunion.com for the latest information.
