Once a year Woodley Park in Van Nuys CA hosts the annual oiling of the grass, or as it’s better known, the Queen’s English All-British Car Meet and Jumble. This year’s cars and crumpets fest is coming up this very next Sunday. Assuming participants can get their cars started (and it doesn’t rain) things will kick off at 9am. There will be food vendors so you won’t go hungry, and things will wrap up at a questionable electrical system friendly 4pm. One thing to keep in mind is that spectator parking is somewhat limited so you might want to come early. Maybe right after having your kippers for breaky.
It will be well worth it. Participating will be a riot of Rovers, a multitude of MG, an avalanche of Austins, and lots of Loti, and the Jumble (or swap meet) may be the opportunity to find that missing leaf spring gaiter or key fob you’ve been desperately seeking. The show is free for spectators, and there’s a nominal charge for getting your own Brit barge on display, the participant entry form may being found here. Similarly, a Map and directions are here.
If you happen to be in the Los Angeles area this upcoming weekend, this is a must-see event for all enthusiasts, and especially so if you also happen to be an anglophile or just someone who’s always wondered how Lucas manages to put all that smoke in their wires.
