35th Annual Ancaster British Car Flea Market and Car Show RECAP The 35th Annual Ancaster British Car Flea Market and Car Show is now in the record books. The warm and sunny weather cooperated and turned out huge crowds. The parking lot for British Cars was full. I arrived before sun up and left around high noon, but from my tour of the arena and grounds we had a full house. There is always a breeze at Ancaster, but this year we were lucky to have a warm breeze and the sun filling the blue sky. We will have to wait to see what record numbers were actually in attendance. Many thanks to all of the hard working volunteers from the British Sports Car Club of Hamilton and the Austin Healey Club of Southern Ontario, who came out and devoted their time for this great fundraiser. The profits from the Flea Market and Car Show keep our Clubs costs down and give us the ability to have many great events throughout the year. If you didnâ€™t volunteer or attend, we hope to see you out next year. Cheers, Mark Doust
