I just returned from four days in the Smokies, looking at some of the coolest British cars around. The 20th annual BritishV8 Meet was held at the Talley Ho Inn in Townsend, Tennessee.
Some of the highlights of the meet, besides looking at the interesting ways people have adapted their LBCs to perform better, was a visit to the Tennessee Aircraft Museum, drives in the Smokies, and of course the Tail of the Dragon. The meet was capped off with a fine barbecue dinner and local old-time musicians playing stringed instruments including dulcimers, banjos, fiddles, mandolin, guitar, etc.
As most of you know, Jim Blackwood and I, both WVBCC Charter Members, will be hosting the BritishV8 group in West Virginia in 2017. We have been scouting locations and are pretty close to a decision on a location in the mountains, near plenty of fun roads. We hope many WVBCC members will be able to enjoy the 2017 meet as well.
Tentative date in June 8-11, 2017.
Jim Blackwood works on Ken Nicks’s 1951 Jaguar white event hosts Dan Masters and Jim Watson run for tools, etc.
