2018 “Yaller Cathouse” Run and Lunch

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.

Cars ‘n Coffee 14 July 2018

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.

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!
