Richard Perry, a former London policeman, stands by his extremely rare 1964 Triumph Herald at the English Motors Show sponsored by Fallbrook’s Fairbrook Farms to raise funds for Meals on Wheels. Perry grew up in Wales, UK, and served with the London Police in places like Buckingham Palace and Parliament. His English policeman’s cap is the one he wore during his service. Tim Deshler cleans the windshield of his 1960 Austin Healy Bugeye Sprite at the English Motors Show on Sept. 29. The show was sponsored by Fairbrook Farms in Fallbrook as a charity event for Meals on Wheels. Mike Madigan pushes his 1938 Vincent HRD Rapide motorcycle into place during the English Motors Show at Fairbrook Farms on Sept. 29. Madigan said the HRD Rapide is a very rare version of the Vincent line of English motorcycles. Jim Massman of Fallbrook polishes his 1966 Sunbeam Tiger at the English Motors Show Sept. 29.

David Leigh of Rancho Bernardo enjoys lunch in the elegant rear seat of his 1956 Daimler 104 sedan during the English Motors Show on Sept. 29.

Knight said the Mini was entirely stock, except for a powerful 140 horsepower Honda engine installed in place of the low-powered original. Susan Frevel of San Diego marvels at the size of the passenger compartment of a 1962 Mini compared to the massive red Land Rover (background) that she and her husband Gordon displayed at the English Motors Show, Sept. 29, at Fairbrook Farms.
