Conceived by a group of British car and motorcycle clubs in the Denver area, the first Colorado English Motoring Conclave was held in the summer of 1983. Every September since then many hundreds of classic and collector cars and their owners have gathered at the Conclave to celebrate the operation, preservation, and owner participation of the great British automobile marques. Now in its 35th year, the 2018 Conclave will be held over the weekend of the 15-16th of September. The weekend begins on Saturday the 15th with “Ride the Rockies” motoring tour which starts from Oak Park in Arvada, and is followed by the All British English Motoring Conclave Car Show, which will be also be held in the now familiar location of Oak Park, on Sunday the 16th. Each September the Conclave car show sees well over 400 British cars and bikes gather […]

Mark your calendars every one, in July 2017 the Solihull Society will be returning to Leadville, CO for the annual Land Rover National Rally. We are still busy working on final details for evening venues and the final trail list, but as those that attending the 2005 and 2009 events can attest, Leadville is made for Land Rovers, both old and new. Situated at 10,000’ above sea level, Leadville is the quintessential 1880s mining town. Come see where Horace Tabor made his fortune, walk in the steps of Doc Holliday and the Unsinkable Molly Brown, tour old mines, reconnect with friends, and let’s not forget, run some amazing trails in the Best 4x4xFar. Trails in the area include Iron Mike Mine, Mosquito Pass, Holy Cross, Chinaman Gulch, and Wheeler Lake to name just a few. Monday 24 July – Afternoon, […]

They don’t sell any MG in America, but some companies like to take their cars to Colorado anyway, to ensure they can handle high altitude conditions. Roman Mica from TFL Car is off doing what he calls “prototype fishing” again. This time, his catch and release program resulted in two MG5 hatchbacks spotted in Colorado. The MG5 Hatchback sounds like a nice British car, but it’s actually a Chinese car. It arrived in concept form in early 2011 and already has a mild facelift. We believe this particular prototype uses a turbo 1.5-liter engine rated at around 130 hp and 200 Nm of torque. The MG3 supermini and larger MG6 are sold in Europe, being assembled in Britain by very few employees, from complete kits made in China. What’s really funny about the video is that a single well spoken […]
