    Having postponed the long-planned Roast Beef Run I decided to risk a trip 40 minutes up RT 24 here in Maryland to check out MGs on the Rocks, the 32nd annual meeting and all-Brit show by MGs of Baltimore.

    Great show, despite the threat of rain. Plus, it didn’t rain.

    Here’s a few snaps:

    Overall scene was B-heavy, as is usually the case:

    Beer was served…or smuggled in. Not sure.


    This one’s by far my favorite car on the lot: ’53 club racer with patina to spare.


    -Dig that crazy cut-off switch . . . you could actually do it from outside the car!

    There was lots of other great stuff there, including some better-preserved TDs. This one was hands-down the cleanest–another ’53:

    My entry for best shift knob:

    This badass V-8 B:

    Several very nice E-Types:

    And such uncategorizable awesomeness as this:


    with its awesome 2-cylinder, air-cooled, race-ready, awesome powerplant . . .

    This guy drove from York PA. Morris Minor has 38 ground-pounding horsepower! He says it’ll do 65 mph as long as there are no hills:

    Dude even has the original “Club” for it:

     . . .turns out the “Club” originates in the ’50s. And it was called the “Krookloc.”

    My favorite plaque/sticker:

    Thanks for the memories.

    Did you see an MGA coupe?

    Most excellent photos Ed. Thanks. Not sure if I like the cleanest dash or the best shifter photo the best. Now if the TD had THAT shifter, oh wow!

    OK, guys, take me to school. What in the heck is that slick little red beauty with the big No. 5 on the door and boot? And does it really have only two cylinders?

    I think it’s a Berkeley, probably an SE-328 “Deluxe.” The owner wasn’t near it when I passed so I just spent a half hour on the Google.

    Air-cooled, 18-horses, and a fiberglass body. Maybe I should’ve said “yes” when the guy at the gate asked me if I wanted to put Bridget on the show field.

    Here’s another shot of that engine, through the grille:

    Just when I thought I had a pretty good handle on the postwar British sports car scene, along comes something like that. Wow. Just . . . wow.

    Thanks, Ed. I’d never have known even where to start looking for that.

    My BIL lives in Madison, GA. Just 60 minutes north of me. They have a lot of cars there. It started by collecting Bubble Cars. Not sure but  they used to only be open on week days and not weekends.

    More Berkeley love.

    Super nice resto & some neat old slides of racing Berkeleys from back in the day.

    Again I say: British fiberglass cars with air-cooled engines. These things are our blood brothers.
