Zimmerman ADM British Car Show 6/22

One nice thing about the warmer temperatures, I don’t have to dress like I’m on an Artic expedition when I leave early in the morning for a car show. Today’s  show in El Segundo is a case in point, T- shirt under a long-sleeve denim shirt and I  was set. Arrived first at the now-empty Starbucks at Mariposa and PCH, but was soon joined by Greg Aden and his grandson Jordan, Steve MagofIin, and Ron Fine. We chewed the fat for a few minutes and then headed to the Museum when no one else showed up.


Our four cars made a nice statement in one corner of the parking lot, among the Triumphs, Jaguars, Lotuses, and MG’s.


Meanwhile, out on the street in front of the museum was an Alvis, a Rootes Sunbeam, Morrris Minor, a couple of Morgans, two English Fords, and a few other cars of interest.


Arriving late was Phil Caliva in his newer, all-black BJ8. He had taken his Ford F-100 truck to a show in Orange County early, so Phil! Another BJ8 showed up. A recently restored dark green car with a light tan interior, which just happened to win Best of Show. The owner, Dave Moseley (?), was given a membership application to join the Club.


Visiting the show was Corkey Holt, driving a BJ9, because it cost $25. to park in the show. Also on hand was Dex Kaytis’ son Clay, and his wife Monica, brand new members of the Healey Club.


After lunch at the fast food establishments a short walk from the museum, and the presentation of awards it was time to leave the pleasant weather of El Segundo. I would soon be faced with the fires of the Valley as I headed north on the Harbor Freeway for Glendale.
