Get your guys for this post, it will be car heavy! Our British Car Club had three events in eight days, lots of food and fun and a special day with the next generation of car lovers. First we gathered at a member’s home after a nice drive in the mountains. We had a cookout on a warm day. This particular drive was in remembrance of a member we lost this past year to pancreatic cancer.
We parked all over the place.
Just look at the view from John and Gail’s house. Gorgeous!
Then, we gathered on Wednesday at the local Jaguar dealer who sponsor our car show, to give the proceeds from the car show to two local Meals on Wheels groups. That is logical, isn’t it, for a car club to pick Meals on Wheels? We have helped to support them for many years now. Of course the dealership had to park one of their most wonderful cars in the room, an F-type that had a sticker price of over $99,000!! OMG, must be nice!
This past Saturday we had a fun time with a short drive, and then a meet and greet. We started off by gathering in a local parking lot so we could go together to the meeting place. That is our blue TVR on the left. Even the parking lots are pretty here, LOL!! Still have some color hanging on here and there.
Driving out to Clyde, we met up with a group of young people from Western Carolina University.
We grabbed coffee at the Burger King, and spent over an hour talking with the next generation of car enthusiasts.
The young people had a great time, full of questions and our guys had a great time showing off their cars and engines. It is exciting to see younger people interested in these wonderful old cars. After all, someday we will want someone to buy them from us, LOL!! More pics from all these events are on our club site at bccwnc.org, if your guy wants to see more.
We are done with driving events for the year, but I need to find something glitzy to wear to the Christmas party next month. Thrift stores, here I come. Last time I looked for something glitzy, I managed to come home with a sequined jacket for $5! But I have worn it several times, so it is time for something new, or at least new to me! The ones I frequent the most benefit the Humane Society and the local Council on Aging. I noticed a new resale shop here too, might have to check it out. But, I refuse to leave the house on the Friday after Thanksgiving. So, maybe on Small Business Saturday, we’ll get to some shopping. Hope you all have a great Thanksgiving weekend!
