Default All British Field Meet, 2010 - Vancouver, Canada

When I saw a banner for the All British Field Meet during the Vancouver Auto Show, I was expecting a couple of dozen cars and a few dozen auto freaks like myself. But oh boy was I wrong! The 2010 All British Field Meet was a formal get together of over 500 classic British cars from this part of the world (with a few newer cars for company) that attracted over 1000 visitors. I ended up filling my 2GB SD card. I hope to share the best of the lot in this thread. If you love classic British cars, this thread is a must see. For those who love newer cars, I have thrown in a few snaps to keep you interested as well.

Due the large number of pictures, I am going to upload in batches. Hope you guys will bear with me. Let me start off with arguably the two most famous British car brands - Rolls Royce and Bentley.
