Wow!, Holy Crap!

These are just two of the comments heard when we first entered the garage where the cars are kept. This is definitely a world class collection of automobiles. I didn't count but there must have been at least 50 cars on display. They were all impeccable examples of well kept sports cars. Each car has it's own unique story and they aren't run of the mill cars. They are the best of the best of their respective marques. For instance; the Cobra wasn't an original, nor was it a Factory Five or Superformance replica. It was hand built to be an exact copy of the 427 Cobra built by Carol Shelby. The AMX3 is the only one lef...

Ken Rubin hosted our September Pistons & Pints at his home in St. Albans. As always, most everyone had a great time and the food was abundant and excellent. I had never had low country boil but it was delicious. All the ingredients seemed to pick up some of the flavor of the other ingredients and the Prawns were absolutely huge. Ken also had burgers and several members brought dishes to share.

Ken invited his girlfriend Susie's family as well. They were a great addition. They brought a Cornhole game that was a lot of fun.

If you missed this event you really missed out. Ken enjoys entertaining and I imagine he will host us again. His...

Charlie, Cindra, Mark, Connie & Dave departed from St. Albans and cruised down Route 60.  Along the way, we picked up Rick and Prema in Hurricane, then Dan and Pam west of Culloden.   After a brief stint down I-64 to bypass the downtown Huntington activities, we picked up Roger and Trish in Ceredo.  We took Route 168 and Skyline Drive to bypass all of the Ashland activities.   After a stop for refreshments at the Ashland DQ, we made our way down Route 60 to Grayson and then in to Carter Caves.  It was all in all about a couple of hours of windshield time.

We enjoyed a nice lunch at the Lodge.  Some liked the foo...

Charlie Justice called a Flash Cruise to Fayetteville for Sunday the 25th at 1:00 PM. It was a grand success. We had 16 cars and 28 or 29 people. This is one of the largest cruises we have ever had. It equaled a cruise we had earlier when Dan was our President.

The weather was perfect. Several folks responded saying that they would be there and even more showed up unannounced. That is exactly how a Flash Cruise works. Charlie has volunteered to be our cruise director but anyone can call a Flash Cruise at anytime. A Flash Cruise is a cruise that is unplanned and on short notice. The last one we had was to the Steak Escape in Barbou...

Charlie & Cindra Justice called a Flash Cruise Sunday morning. We met at the Sonic in St. Albans at 10:30 AM. After a slight delay we headed down Rt. 60 toward  Barboursville. I loved driving on Rt. 60. It's freshly paved from St. Albans to the Putnam County line. It is very smooth and quite enjoyable.

On the cruise were Charlie & Cindra Justice, Dave & Paulette Neil, me, and Mark & Connie Mason driving their yellow TR6 for it's maiden cruise. The car performed well but Mark has additional plans for it. Along the way we passed Dan Blackwood's house and he was waiting for us at the end of his driveway. He joined the cruise at that p...

Three British cars from Charlotte, NC traveled through our area on their way to Traverse City, MI for the annual meet of the North American MGB Register. They stopped over in Charleston and we hosted a cookout for them at Kevin's Garage (KARS) in Dunbar. With the 6 people traveling through the area and our members we had 40 people attend this event. It was our monthly Pistons & Pints event.

As always, Kevin was a wonderful host. We used the lifts as tables to eat at along with tables and chairs under canopies outside. We also had British Invasion music playing. Beatles, Monkeys, Doors, and other British bands from the 60s.

The weath...
