Harry Hanson and Rich Matthews will represent Palm Beach Motor Cars (Land Rover Palm Beach, Jaguar, Lotus and Aston Martin of Palm Beach) at the event. “I have had the great pleasure of representing Land Rover Palm Beach along with Harry Hanson from our sister store Palm Beach Motor Cars at the Wheels Across the Pond for the last 2 years. This year will see a change of venue to Carlin Park by the beach. If the weather is the same as the last few years we will be onto a winner. 2010 has been a huge year for Land Rover and Jaguar with an all new line-up that will be on show for all to see. The 2010 models are future classics in the making. I look forward to seeing everyone at the show Saturday, ” said Rich Matthews.
Harry Hanson of Palm Beach Motor Cars is enthusiastic about the event, “It’s a really fun show, even for people that are not necessarily car enthusiasts because it offers automobiles that many people in this country have never seen. And if you are into cars, especially British ones, you won’t want to miss it.”
