Fifth time for this event, held this year on 19 November (hey, I’ve been busy…) and the participants had a fine – if somewhat chilly, almost universally top-up – drive.
We had 18 cars show, about 30 people and truth be known, the majority of the vehicles were MGs, particularly MGBs…and it was great having them and their owners, a truly great bunch. In fact, the three brave, top down drivers were in an MG TC, MGA and MGB. Oh, to be sure, the “home club” was represented, with a TR4, TR6 and TR8 and we had a few other interesting cars, including a Fiat 2000 Spider (that’s a first for this bunch!) and immaculate ’66 Malibu. Dave Massey did the now traditional playing of the service anthems on his bagpipes prior to departure. Several of the participants came to attention upon hearing their song; our thanks to Dave for taking part.
In the end, we had a very good drive, with the truly hardy participants enjoying lunch at Stoney’s in Perryville. Our thanks to all who made the drive and contributed to the Purple Heart Foundation; we wound up with $500 for that veterans’/vet family support organization.
