Thank you to all who participated in our 2018 AITM Car Show to make the show successful. Once again, we’ll donate all show proceeds to the local offices of Meals On Wheels.
Please check back in early 2019 for details on our 20th Annual AITM Car Show.
For reference only, here are details from the 2018 show.
The British Car Club of Western North Carolina 19th annual
Autumn in the Mountains
British & European Car & Motorcycle Show
Saturday, 13 October 2018
Our show’s new home is the Asheville Outlets, located at 800 Brevard Road, Asheville NC 28806. The show will start at 9:00am, with class-awards being issued at 3:00pm.
Autumn in the Mountains features a variety of classic, exotic and racing British & European cars and motorcycles from the 1930’s to today’s modern examples. Centrally located, the Asheville Outlets (I-26 and I-40) provides something for everyone! There are over 50 top fashion, sports and accessory outlet stores, and there’s so much to see and do within the surrounding area, so bring your British or European car or motorcycle plus the entire family and enjoy some great Western North Carolina hospitality. In fact, spend the weekend! We’ve got a great discount rate reserved just for you at the Comfort Inn & Suites, located 100 yards away from our car show. Call 1-800-622-4005 and tell them you’re with the British Car Show! Also, the hotel is sponsoring a free car wash and detail area just for us! As the name suggests, October in Asheville means comfortable fall weather and unmatched autumn colors. It’s going to be a great event!
In addition to a huge car show, the weekend’s events include great food, 60’s and 70’s gear-head music, silent auctions with hundreds of great products, various raffles and drawings, product exhibits and the AITM awards presentation. Participants will receive a free event photo, commemorative poster, event dash plaque and an event ‘Goodie Bag’ filled with sponsor gifts and discount coupons to all of the 50+ stores at the Asheville Outlets!
AITM sponsors include: Kia of Asheville, Paramount Automotive Group, Highland Brewing Company, Michelin Tires, Biltmore Wines, Moss Motors, Stoner Solutions, Royal Purple Motor Oil, Airaid Air Filters, Asheville Outlets … and many, many more!
And, the best part of this great show is that all proceeds from Autumn in the Mountains benefit the local Buncombe and Henderson County offices of Meals On Wheels. Thanks to the continuing growth of our event, the on-going support of our great sponsors, and the British car community, BCCWNC has surpassed $35,000 in donations to local charities.
