Kei Kars (Japanese micro cars) are the featured attraction September 27 at the annual Autumn Classic & Fringe show at Britain’s Heritage Motor Centre in Gaydon, Warwickshire.

The “Kei Kars in the Park” class makes its debut at the show this year. Kei cars are micro vehicles born in post-war Japan and continuing on through the 1990s, with cars such as the Honda Beat, Suzuki Cappuccino, Daihatsu Move and others.

Also part of the Autumn Classic & Fringe event, which is open to vehicles more than 20 years old, is the Autumn Cream Tea Run, a 63-mile scenic drive through the North Cotswold area.
