Mid fifties Austin-Healey 100M in bright red. For a little more on this hot British sportscar, click over to this site.
MGA coupe, of undetermined vintage, lol. At first I thought it was a Twin-Cam coupe, but on second and third viewing, they weren't equipped with wire wheels. I think this is a 1600 coupe, a slightly more powerful version of the original 1500. For more on the MGA click here.
The engine of the black car above. Between the inexpensive digital camera, the very bright sun and who knows what else, the photo has a very blue sheen. I "fixed" if in Photoshop, dulling it back to a black, but as far as a photo goes, it was better blue, so I went back to the original. The alloy cylinder head says "JUDSON" which I believe is an aftermarket supercharger, but I'm not sure. Maybe Nigel can help with these cars! What I CAN say is that I absolutely adore these MGA coupes. The bodystyle is very appealing to me, the very close-coupled roof and roll-up windows making it more "my" type of car than the roadster.
The sole example of the then-popular "Spridget" series, the small convertible marketed as both an Austin Sprite and an MG Midget. This is one of the last of the Midgets before the raised-suspension rubber bumper versions, probably a '71 or '72 model.
The '69 Triumph TR6 wasn't in the show, but rather parked just outside the green. I've always loved this final iteration of the Michelotti TR4/5/250/6 sportscars. The lines were the cleanest to date, and while the US version was very detuned compared with the Euro versions, all of those parts are readily available today to make up for it.

An early '60s Triumph TR3A. For more on these classic Brit sportscars click here. I couldn't find it by Googling recently, but I remember a photo of Walter Cronkite in his TR3 appearing in Road & Track I believe. TR3A info here.
These two TR3s were next to each other in the show. Their engines differed in details, but I couldn't exactly say why, lol. I'm hopelessly un-mechanical. I'll say this, you could eat your dinner off either one of them, they were polished and clean beyond belief.
Part 3 next, from an original Mini Clubman to a Zsa-Zsa Corniche.
