Beaconsfield All British Car Show
Once again this year, Montreal played host to the annual All British Car Day. As usual, there was a plethora of Jags, MGs and Triumphs. However, what made this year different was the gathering of Singer owners and their cars.
Seeing one Singer at a show is a rarity as most of us know. However, at Beaconsfield, there were four. Bob Tayler drove his intrepid '34 Le Mans, where it joined the other pre war car, Phil Avis' '36 Le Mans. On the post war front, Paul Bouchard arrived in his recently certified cream and brown '48 Roadster with proud kids in tow. He was also joined by his upholsterer (Mom) who was obviously happy to be there as well.
The star of the show, however, was Terry Trovato. Terry packed up his '49 Roadster, sporting a new red paint job, and travelled all the way from Natchez Mississippi to Montreal to meet the Canadian connection. Terry also brought three travelling companions, one of whom owns a '35 Singer (long tail). The third companion was his trusty chicken buddy that sits proudly atop the Roadster to help Terry embellish the story of his barnyard find (if further embellishment is required).
A gathering of Singerphiles wouldn't be complete without a group shot and the Beaconsfield event was no exception. Terry's travelling companions flank NASOC members Paul Bouchard, Phil Avis, Peter McKercher and Terry Trovato.
