The Mighty Firefly


Finally on August 4th I managed to attend a car show. Twin Shores near Darnley was the host of this show, money raised was for the IWK children’s hospital. Linda drove me there and back in beautiful sunshine. Twin Shores is a very busy summer resort within walking distance of the beach. The Mighty Firefly performed as it should, but I have to say getting in and out is almost as difficult as in an MGB or Midget!. The shows these days tend to feature more muscle cars than antiques. There was a strong showing of a variety of Mustangs. A few from the sixties but most more modern editions. No real LBCs unfortunately, but there was one rather interesting 1948 XK 100 Jaguar. All in all it was a pleasant Sunday afternoon, next show Cymbria August 24th. Hope to see some of the old Antique Car Club members there. It seems most of the old guys like me are disappearing from the hobby, rarely meet anyone I know these days. I have been a life member of the PEI Antique Club since the mid 1970s, I joined with a 1963 .Humber Super Snipe, but later concentrated on Rover’s, hence my name Irishrover. I joined Batans (British Automobile Touring Assoc of NS) in late 1970s early 1980s can’t remember exactly . I hardly know any of the members there either, just a handful of old codgers like myself. Nevertheless, this has been a life long hobby that I have thoroughly enjoy my whole life. Now I sit in my chair dreaming of finding a rare old British Austin Rover, etc.

God Bless and keep reading
