Brent Martin has posted some of his photos of the ‘Brit Car Drive Up’on the VRCBC Facebook page here. They are great examples of the wide cross-section of cars that will be on display at the All British Field Meet at the Van Dusen Gardens on Saturday, May 18th.

Announcing The ‘BRIT CAR’ DRIVE UP
The Brit Car Drive Up is presented by the All British Field Meet – The Greatest Show on British Wheels and will feature and promote classics from the ABFM. This year’s ABFM will again be held at the VanDusen Gardens on Saturday May 18, 2013. (ABFM web site)
Please join us for a brisk Saturday morning drive to the Convention Centre followed by a visit to the big Auto Show. Cars will assemble between 9:30am and 10:00 am at the Vancouver Planetarium parking lot, Vanier Park, Kits Point, Vancouver. (location) From there we will convoy down Burrard Street to the Convention Centre.
We anticipate a good showing with at least one Aston Martin DB5 leading the parade to celebrate Aston’s 100th anniversary. Also, we would like Austin Healey’s 60th anniversary to be well represented as well. But all ‘Brit’ cars are welcome to join in the fun as we take over the streets of downtown Vancouver. Clubs are welcome to bring membership promotion material and banners, as the VIAS will be promoting this event and a large crowd of spectators and media coverage is anticipated.
To join the group and to qualify for the Auto Show passes and the draw, please register (at no cost) your British car before the March 22 deadline. Contact Patrick Stewart by email: firstname.lastname@example.org or phone: 604 644 9067. Your Show passes will be issued on arrival at the Convention Centre and are valid for the day.
