British Cars Make A "Triumphant" Showing In Port Jefferson

Hello my name is Johnny Baumann. With my two blogs I try to bring humor, history and the touching stories that make old cars great. I always say it's about the people and stories along the road.

During the summertime on Mill Creek Road in scenic Port Jefferson they hold a casual classic car show on Wednesday nights. Cars range from Model T’s, Nifty 50′s, Muscle Cars and Exotics.

This week we had the special treat of fine English cars. Brought in by The Long Island Triumph Association. The weather was picture perfect. The music and brew from The Port Jeff Brewery was awsome and the display of fine British Cars was amazing.

With the help of our friends from Home Kingdom the Triumph’s found great parking on Mill Creek Road. Red seemed to be the color of choice and the iconic TR6 being the most popular model but a few Spitfire’s graced the parking lot. One stand out was a 1959 MGA displayed by Long Island MG Club member Roy Scharwachter. The stunning MGA featured Minilite racing wheels, Dual Weber 45 DCOE Carburetors, header and a rare cross flow cylinder head.

All that attended the event had a grand time. Great local food, Port Jeff Brewery beer and music made for an wonderful evening for car nuts and everybody else who joined in. The Long Island Triumph Association is planning another event in Port Jefferson. Being called “Brits and Bit” Car Show and Swap Meet it is planned for Sunday October 28th from 10am-4pm. Some events include a British car show, swap meet, karaoke and beer tasting by the Port Jeff Brewery. Watch for updated info
