    From the TWOA.

    "On Sept 9-14 at Shelton Vineyards, Dobson, NC, the Triumph Club of the Carolinas is hosting the National Meet of the Vintage Triumph Register. The host hotel is the Hampton Inn, Shelton Vinyards in Dobson, but if that fills up there is the Surrey Inn across the street, and a number of nice hotels in Mount Airy about 10 minutes away. Featured marque will be the wedge cars, TR7 and TR8, "Celebrating 40 years of The Shape." TWOA and TCOC are bringing Harris Mann (TR7 Stylist) to the US for the show and Graham Robson will also be there we're told. The host club is looking into hosting a hillclimb in addition to the autocross. We (TWOA) are hoping to get 100 wedge cars to Dobson, and we think this is doable. Please join us!"

    Thanks

    Word from the TWOA is that over 60+ Wedges are registered for this show. That will be a great turnout and rival that 80+ cars that showed up to the Roadster Factory show in the early 2000's.

    See everyone soon.

    See you down there. We have two Wedges coming from Eastern Ontario. Tried to shame another couple of them to join us, but without success! We should be there late Monday or early Tuesday.
