Gallery: British By The Sea Gathering – June 2, 2024

WATERFORD, CT – The annual British by the Sea Gathering staged by the Connecticut MG Club drew a broad cross-section of some 350 models made in England to Harkness Memorial State Parks on Sunday. They ranged from currently familiar names such as Jaguar and Land Rover, to less familiar (to younger folks) brands like MG, Triumph and Austin Healey, and to even more obscure marques such as Sunbeam, TVR and Riley.

RIDE-CT spent several hours admiring the models, chatting with owners, and rounding up stories to be posted in the days ahead. For now, here’s a gallery of some of the cars that were displayed.
