Yesterday was the 20th British Car Meeting in Morges (a small city on the bank of Lac Leman near Geneva, Switzerland), they say it's one of the most well attended displays of classic British cars on the Continent. 



The Chateau grounds were reserved for the E-Type Jaguar celebrating it's 50th anniversary, t
he Park de  l'Independance was reserved for all other Jaguars 
celebrating the 110th anniversary of the birth of Sir William Lyons...and the event is also open to all other British marques too.

It was a beautiful day by the lake yesterday, with plenty of shade for the cars. I live on 30 mins away so it was an easy drive for me...I was lucky enough to drive the 1954 AC 'Ruddspeed' Ace, Ken Rudds old car. Restored by the current owner Steve Gray of the Brooklands Motor Company (also AC Heritage).

Here are a some other photos from the event:

Wow you lucky fellow, being entrusted with the wonderful Ruddspeed.

I could only boast to have owned but one of the type of cars featured, in your terrific photo lineup-the 100E, and not a 4 door Prefect, but one of the last Populars, circa 1962. (I owned my one in the 1970s)I can only drool over the rest and wow that shooting brake estate Elan, how rare must that be now!

Think I saw you a couple of weeks ago near Blonay in this car. Sounded fantastic and looks great. Refreshing to see it on Swiss roads.

Yes that was me...I don't think it will be here much longer as Steve wants to drive it back to the UK soon.

I can understand that, this great weather cant last for ever. No doubt salt on the roads in the next few weeks. Time to lock the classics away for winter.
