I sent the BCW site an email last May, asking them to add our badge to their page. Never heard back. Figured they were into that whole all-original snob appeal thing. Forgot about it until getting this reply the other day.
So I figure this means we’re welcome at any BCW event now.
Here’s what I got, followed by my original email:
Your modified logo image has been placed on the British Car Week Club Banners page adapted from your photo. If you happen to come up with an upgraded image to place on the page, please keep me in mind.
Thanks for supporting British Car Week!

tdreplica.com is an online community of owners and enthusiasts of the
various MG TD kits and replicas produced from the 1970s through the
1990s. We understand, of course, that ours are not “British” cars, but
we are very much committed to the spirit of the thing, and are out and
about throughout the cruising season. Our cars get a lot of the same
attention and questions yours get from the general public; our members
explain that what they’re driving are tributes to the original vehicles.
On an operational level, replica owners face similar challenges
sourcing spare parts (the body and trim pieces are often unique to a
particular kit), and we are, of course, loyal Moss catalogue
The replicas may actually be rarer than the originals, yet are less
costly to buy and maintain and so more likely to be driven on public
In all ways we salute you.
See you at the drive-in.December 5, 2010 at 6:50 pm #242772billnpartsParticipant
I went to the event in 2006 to get additional ideas for future modifications. As I approached Pennypacker Mansion event workers waved me into the show. I figured “what the hell”? and followed their lead. I registered, had the cars photo taken, and was ushered onto the display field and was parked in a line of factory TD’s. It took almost half an hour before I was told I had to move to their “special interest” area.
In all they have a great show. Best of Show was a 1953 Jag XK120. The original owner drove it there.
