Autumn In the Mountains Car Show from From My Carolina Home

This past weekend was our annual car show for the British Car Club. The day began foggy and cool, and cars were arriving early. It was apparent that the cancellation of shows last spring and many over the summer have left our car loving public desperate for some four wheel fun.

By the time registration closed, we had over 200 cars! All makes of British cars, along with several categories of European cars were represented.

Our little modern MINI on the left led off the category of MINIs. Most were classics from decades past.

Exotic cars like these two Lotus ...

Springtime Apple Blossom Drive and Garden from From My Carolina Home

Spring seems to be here at last for good. This week the azaleas have burst into bloom along the driveway circle, with the larger white one and the light pink both fully opened up now.

We actually had so many members come that we ...

March Madness Drive from From My Carolina Home

Cabin fever has caught hold in all our car clubs, and with the warming weather, more drives are happening. The first one of the season for the British Car Club had us meeting in west Asheville for a drive north. That’s our red MINI on the left. It counts as British for this club, and also for the two MINI clubs we are in.

It didn’t take very long for more friends to arrive and we had eight cars ready to roll.

A few minutes later and we were up to 12. Seems like a lot of us ...
