Do they still have the Saturday morning car show known as Donut Derelicts in Huntington Beach?

I see that the Cars & Coffee website lists one in Boston but there is zero info about it. Kamala knows of a good one I want to go to and there's Saturday afternoons at Riley's Roast Beef (new owners and new name but I forgot what it is). That's about a mile from me.

I've been to that one.

It was better when the cars from the Microcar show at the MOT went.

I had a K registration Austin 1300 when I was in the UK, not the Vanden Plas however. It was an interesting experience.

Thanks Red, going down to visit my daughter this weekend and will try to check it out. I saw "Car Show" signs posted on Michelson and Carlson in the past, but was never able to check it out.

If you draw a Maltese Cross on your forehead (or something else of course) I'll keep an eye out for you this week. If you want to meet me at the Donut Derilects first PM me.

It's not an "Austin America," AFAIK, it's the VP version of an MG 1100. The America's were a little more modern, with DOT signals and shit, and 1275's, and two doors. Very few MG 1100's came to the states, AFAIK none of the Princess 1300's. One of my buddies had two, and a VP (which, btw was very nice. Leather and Burl Mahogany like a Jag, like you said.)

I don't know if VP ever did a version of the America or not, but that's an MG.

Badge engineered, yes. Identical, no. AFAIK, there is no such thing as a four door Austin 1100/1300/America or a two door vanden Plas Princess.
Well shut my mouth. I just found some pics of "Austin" Super Deluxe SEDANS... But fwiw, the "America" was never anything other than a coupe.
