SAN FRANCISCO: The California British Car Meets have become a fall tradition among San Francisco Bay Area enthusiasts since 1978 and the Los Angeles British car fanatics since 1982. The Palo Alto event was one of the first in the United States and has been the prototype for hundreds of other similar shows that have sprouted up across the country.

These events are well laid out and organized, yet unstructured enough to have lots of fun. Participants can come and go from the field at all times and for sale signs are permitted without additional cost. While there is no swap meet, there are restoration parts sellers, literature and toy vendors and local restoration shops showing their wares and workmanship. In the end, these meets become mini car club conventions, where enthusiasts mingle, network and get to see what other builders and collectors are up to these days.

Here are the times and dates for both of the 2001 British Car Meets:

If you’re really into British cars plan to attend both events. Each one has displays for special British cars that only come out but once a year. The Palo Alto meet has a strong car club following, while the Greater Los Angeles meet always has a few celebrity car collectors, like Jay Leno and Jerry Seinfield, show up to enjoy the cars and sunshine too. In Northern & Southern California these are the best car shows in the state to enjoy the sights, sounds and people in the British car hobby. See you at the Meet!
