Foothills British Car Club tour of Fine Line Auto Works 2018

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!

The First Day of Summer! 2018

Nearly 20 BCCWNC members and guests gathered for a BYOM (Bring Your Own Meat) BBQ and summer get together on Friday, 22 June, at John & Jeanne Condren’s home. Joining the party were four (4) new club members! The first arrival (Scott Monfort) parked his shiny MGB at 3:00pm and officially started the party. Fearless Club President, Mitch Andrus, was the last to arrive (about 6:30pm) in his top-down MGA but had to quickly enjoy dinner … as the weather radar showed bright yellow, orange and red storms approaching the community of Dana (just east of Hendersonville). Most members who brought their British cars headed home about 7:00pm and, sure enough, the rain rolled-in at 7:30pm, although only a light amount. A few people stayed and sat through the brief rain storm and then enjoyed the evening by the fire-pit. The gathering officially shut-down at 9:15pm. It was a great evening and John hopes to make this an annual event.
