Most cars would be displayed outside. However, Saturday was essentially a washout due to inclement weather so many of those old crocks were not to be found. I really don't blame the owners.

I wish I had taken more notes from the car owners I talked to because they were certainly proud of their cars.
I would like to talk about all of the cars because they were equally impressive but will profile two that stood out the most for me.
The C-V8 series had fiberglass bodywork (only the door skins were aluminum) and the engine was sourced from Chrysler. A truly stunning Car. The leather interior was equally impressive. As a young boy I had always pined for a Jensen Interceptor having seen "one in the flesh" in the early eighties in Ocotoks, Alberta at a car auction but this is a much more handsome car than the Interceptor.

All in all the BATANS display was a pleasant surprise on a rainy day in June.
Please enjoy my other photos and comment if you wish.
