British Car Day 2007 at Eastwood MetroPark in Dayton, Ohio

Amphicars are Back!

A perennial favorite at British Car Day in Dayton, Ohio -- the Amphicar. Why is a German car that thinks it's a boat so popular and welcomed at a British car and motorcycle show? Two reasons: they are powered by Triumph Spitfire engines, and the owners are known to give rides on the nearby lakes and river. Gebildet mit Spitfire, ja? Sehr gut!

Austin Healey Sprite and 100

The original Austin Healey Sprite just looks so happy and friendly. Its bigger sibling, the Austin Healey 100, looks happy and ready to eat another LBC or your bank account, whichever comes first.

Jaguar XK

Can't decide which Jaguar to own -- soft top or tin top? Buy one of each!

Jamaican Powered by Triumph

These fiberglass-bodied kit cars manufactured by Fiberfab were powered by a variety of engines. This one has a 4-cylinder Triumph TR4 powerplant beneath its enormous bonnet. You won't see one of these lovely vehicles every day, that's for sure. Unless you have one out in your garage, you lucky so-and-so!
