Pictures from the All British Field Meet

Yesterday I ended up deciding on a whim to go check out the all British field meet in Portland. Mainly, I went there hoping to see an XJ220 because it has always been one of my all time favorite cars. Sadly, there was no XJ220 waiting for me, but instead there was such a wide array of British automotive eyecandy, I felt like I had been dropped right in the middle of this years Top Gear UK finale.

Pictured above is a Lotus Eleven (one of 3 at the show), there was vintage racing happening all day and I got the chance to see this one taken to the track.

And here is another lotus Eleven that is rumored to have been driven by Stirling Moss, the owner knew nearly the cars entire history.

After drooling a bit more over the Lotus Elevens, I headed over to the Jag Section to be met by this gorgeous MK2.

I'm terrible at identifying cars that were made before the 60's even though I think they look awesome, so here are some cool old MGs.
