2019 AutoRama

There was good participation by several British car clubs at this year's AutoRama. Two Big Healeys, a Bugeye Sprite, a later (1969) modified Sprite, two E-type Jaguars. a 1971 (?) Triumph and an elegant Jaguar Saloon (Mk I or II). Participants from the BAHC included Darin Graber (organizer), Jon Hanson, Bob Riemenschneider and Glen Schimmelpfennig (who took 2nd place in the semi-sports category with his 1969 Sprite). Dil Strasser (BAHC) came by to help and served an important role - giving lifts home to several of us after we loaded our cars into the show. Jim Thornton, who was unable to participate, graciously loaned his Big Healey for the event.

Thanks to Darin Graber for organizing this multi-club presentation.

Valentine's Day Dinner

We had a good turnout for the 2019 Annual Valentine's Day ("Sweethearts") Dinner on Feb. 12. Fifteen BAHC members and friends attended. The event was held once again at the Red Butte Cafe in Foothill Village, SLC. The "good time" meter (as indicated by the background din of conversion) pegged out at maximum. Thanks to Sheryl Thornton for bringing some fabulous cookies for dessert. 

 Please see photos for this event in the Photo Gallery.

 And now for something totally different....
The smell of gas, the throaty roar, the Smith's gas gauge that goes from full to empty on a hard stop  - these are part of the enjoyment and mystique of classic British cars. However, if you are looking for an alternative and have deep pockets, check this link out.
