    my next long term project… starting with a bare ’05 Elise chassis. still debating what kind of custom Frankenstein vehicle this will end up to be!

      Good to hear the LS3 is earmarked for a 300ZX. Colin Chapman always emphasized small and lightweight in his Lotus car designs.

    Thanks to member Mitch for a professional resolution to transferring bearings to new axles for MGTD. We will be on the road in short order!

    Finally got the seats back in the Mini! Next project – work on fitting the Caterham 7 bonnet and finding the missing cylinder head for the Land Rover Defender. Watch this space!

    A big thank you goes out to Tray Houston for hosting our annual 2020 March Madness Drive today! The weather was great and the drive route was perfect for an escape from the COVID-19!

    To any members who own a Spitfire, I have a rusty ’70 with a running motor, or it cranked and ran last year, that i would sell or part out. Anyone interested please let me know.

    Thank you Alvan and June for being such gracious hosts for the 2020-Red-White-Party! We always have such a wonderful time at your beautiful home! The food was delicious, the company was stellar, and the ongoing projects were delightful and inspiring, (especially all those cars so creatively stored). What fun! You’re the best!

    Thanks to Dennis Somerville for hosting a great 2020 Polar Bear Run on 01-25-20! The weather was great, a nice country drive before lunch, and it’s always good to see the FHBCC folks. The Sierra Nevada Brewing Company is always a spectacular sight!

    Thanks Dennis and Kathy Somerville for planning and hosting the 2019 FBCC and BCCWNC 3rd Annual Veteran’s Day Tour! It was a great success! 43 cars participated and we visited the Sassafras Mountain Observation Tower at 3,553 feet elevation where Dennis and Kathy recognized our Veterans for their dedicated service to our nation.
    Lunch at Mica’s Restaurant was again great!

    Thanks to Tom Young for planning and hosting the 2019 Mt. Mitchell Circumnavigation Drive on Friday Oct 18th. It was a great clear Fall day with great views! The meal at the Garden Deli in Burnsville was great!

    Thanks to Gene Carter and Terry Ramsey for the pictures and the write up on the Mt Mitchell Drive.
    Thanks also to all who joined us in spite of a reschedule and a cool morning start. We did title this drive the “First Annual”, so I hope there will be many more.

    Special notice to John Rachow for all his work in moving the show’s equipment, and his guidance in assembling those tents. Here they are drying on his driveway.

    AITM was great this year (2019). Many thanks to all who showed their cars and helped set-up and break-down and a year’s worth of work. Robert Milks and Gene Carter…. huge props for tying up so many loose ends and details and making it all work so well.

    AITM was a blast this year. No waiting @ the food truck, no noisy generator, restrooms nearby, music was great. Ended with a bang………or should I say a “splash”. Had my cars drying out in the sun today, like two birds drying their wings so they can fly again.
    Thanks to all the AITM committee members and the volunteers for pulling this off!

      Our showing up with our British cars was a surprise to the Air Force veterans. Hosts Chris and John Hoover planned the surprise and I think everyone had a great time.
