Denny Somerville hosted his Second Annual joint drive with the BCCWNC and the FBCC (upstate South Carolina) honoring veterans. Wonderful fall weather and a great turnout made this once again, a memorable event.

It was a typical British morning with clouds and light showers that turned into a nice day by noon. John Condren did an outstanding job of hosting the event with a fine drive and poker run including a stop at the Justus Orchard. The orchard offered fun for the grown-up “kids” in our club playing on the Jumping Pilliow – Alvan Judson, Terry Ramsey and Paul Zimmerman. Apples, Peaches and Blackberries were available for purchase. Then, more scenic driving to a wonderful social event at the Burntshirt winery with a wine tasting and tour. The three highest poker hands received a bottle of Burntshirt wine. An excellent BCCWNC outing.

Report by Robert Milks.
A rainy and cloudy morning turned into a beautiful day. We had a wonderful mountain drive west of Hendersonville, out to Brevard and back. Kevin was thrown a surprise by a downed power pole closing one of our roads. His on-the-fly re-routing was fantastic! Then we had an outstanding lunch at Bella Collina (beautiful hill) perhaps also to be known as Castello di Sweeney. Thank you Kevin and Pat for a great event.

On Saturday 14 July, Mitch Andrus and John Condren attended the Hendersonville Cars ‘n Coffee. There were about 120 cars – mostly American Muscle Cars and Japanese Tuners. There were a total of 9 European/British cars which included Mitch’s MGA and John’s TR3A. Those were the only British cars there. The Hendersonville Fire Department showed up with a 1972 American LaFrance engine (really cool!). Report and photos provided by John Condren.

The small, 2-car / 3-person contingent from the BBCWNC met at the Flat Rock (I-26) Cracker Barrel at 8:30am on Saturday (23 June) and departed on-time at 8:45am for Forest City. We arrived fashionably early at Fine Line Auto Works (9:30am, instead of the targeted start time of 10:00am) and were promptly greeted by Denny, his wife Suzanne, and his two technicians — Keith and Bill. Good bunch of people! A few other early-birds were at the shop, so we all started to take private tours and do individual inspections of the 10-12 cars that ‘Denny and Crew’ were working on. Impressive workmanship! Running fashionably late (10:30am), the bulk of the FBCC club arrived en masse and filled-up the center aisle of Denny’s shop. FBCC President David Benson welcomed everyone and Denny then proceeded to give the group of 40+ tour-takers a thorough and detailed explanation of how to do a proper restoration — project planning, the quotation process, cataloguing of parts, documentation of the process, metal prep, metal working, wood working (Denny makes his own dashboards!), painting, interior and upholstery … from bumper to bumper. It was quite the education!
