the British Car Union presents


Sunday, September 12th
Oakton Community College, Des Plaines

If you have ever owned, wanted to own, or just enjoy British cars, then the British Car Festival is for you. The condition of your car is not important...but getting together is. We welcome all British cars and anyone with an interest in British motoring.

Sponsored by the British Car Union, a not-for-profit organization of a dozen Chicago area British car clubs, this Festival is the 13th annual gathering of British car enthusiasts. The 1998 British Car Festival had over 850 British cars of different models and years, over two thousand people, and over $6000 in gifts, including four round-trip tickets to England donated by British Airways. The Festival features one of the finest displays of British cars in the USA. Where else will you see classic British cars ranging in age from 1928 to present, Austin, Austin-Healey, Bentley, DeLorean, Triumph, MG, Lotus, Morris, Morgan, Jaguar, Jensen-Healey, Mini-Cooper, Sunbeam, Aston Martin, Daimler, Cortina, Land-Rover, Riley, Rolls-Royce, TVR and others you've only read about. Volunteers needed: We still need around 15 volunteers from the CMGC to help with traffic control. Please contact Dave Bralich at 630.289.7915 or e-mail and volunteer a half hour of your day.
