If you love classic British steel, keep scrolling down for the best that Vancouver has to offer of Classic British Sports cars, exotics, and luxury machines. The people that love these cars have to be some of the most dedicated car people I have met. Most freely admit that these old British classics have plenty of quirky problems and electrical gremlins to deal with, but I have found through conversations that that is often something they like about these cars. It's part of the British car experience, it's part of taking care of the car much like taking care of a loved one. The people who drive these cars absolutely love them. Through regular tinkering of carburetors, fixing of electrical grounds and such, and of course driving them about Vancouver a relationship is formed with these cars and an unbreakable passion for the British steel, the aluminium, the burled walnut, the toggle switches and vintage instrumentation is born.

When the blossoms start appearing around the streets of Vancouver and it's clear that Spring has arrived, it's not too long after that the classic, rare, retro, modified, exotic, and even race ready cars start appearing as well. The various Cars and Coffee meets now each happening once a month around the area bring out a good selection of these. There's Weissach's event at Spanish Banks, Porsche Centre Langley holds one, and now there is a new Carb's and Coffee meet put on by some very dedicated car guys happening in North Vancouver that seems to bring out much more of the older model cars.
Here's a look into Weissach's Spanish Banks event this past Saturday.
A couple from the Carb's & Coffee North Vancouver meet the weekend prior as well.
