Almost another year for The British Car and we are thankful for all our loyal members of the forum.
We wanted to take a few minutes to update everyone on a few shows coming up this year, along with some pretty nice cars currently for sale.
VTR National Convention - September 9th - Dobson, NC
This years big event for The British Car will be the VTR national convention in Dobson, NC. While it will be a long ways for the majority of our Northeast members, they are all up for the trip. The show will be centered around the TR7/8 as it is the 40th year anniversary of The Wedge. We along with a few other clubs are shooting for 100 Wedges. Also, Harris Mann, the designer of the original "Wedge" shape will be making his way over from the UK.

British by the Sea - June 1st - Waterford, CT
The other show worth noting is the British by the Sea show on June 1st in Waterford, CT. This show was our main show last year and it was a great time. The venue is great, the area has some good driving roads the cars at the show were second to none. Make a point to get to this show. We are going to try to make this show this year, but will be focusing our efforts on the VTR show.
