SPRING LAKE HEIGHTS — The Positive Driver’s Earth Club held its 17th annual British Car Show at Robertson Park on Father’s Day.

The show featured 42 British vehicles and drew more than 100 visitors, of all ages.

“It’s great to see dads showing their next generation about these automobiles that are unique,” club member Pat Wignall said. “The cars that are on the road today are not like these, these cars are really like little works of art.”

Hemmings Motor News sponsors car shows like this one, around the United States, Ms. Wignall said.

Ms. Wignall planned the event and was responsible for printing posters and getting the date and venue approved by the borough council. The borough’s recreation department also provided support.

One of the cars displayed was a 1968 Jaguar XKE owned by Altha Morton of Sea Girt, whose husband, Curt, exhibited the vehicle, which has been featured at previous shows as well.

“It is a great show in a low pressured environment,” Mr. Morton said. “There is no judging going on there, so it is very relaxed and people are just talking freely about cars.”
