On March 3, thirteen cars from the club caravanned down to Cape Coral, FL for the Seventh Annual B.I.G. (British, Italian & German) European Sports and Collector Car Show sponsored by the Triumphs of Southwest Florida Club. This car show is open to all B.I.G. European sports and collector cars, vintage and modern. It’s a nice, picnic-style event in a park on the river, with vendor tables and food and drink provided by a local boy scout troop. Though a 70 mile trek one-way, this has become a favorite car show for our members.
We made a really good showing garnering 9 first place trophies! Winners were: Gene McOmber – 1990 Morgan Plus 8; Jack Knuese – 1969 Lotus Elan; John Magine – MGA; Mike Bohardt – 1969 TR3A; Ron George – MGB; Bob Faria – Austin; Mike Browne – 1972 Mini Cooper; Bruce Skaggs – Jaguar and Larry Eslinger – 1977 MG Midget.
