Guardsman Pass/Midway - October 28

 What beautiful weather for a drive over to Midway for lunch via Brighton/Guardsman Pass!  Attendees included Darin Graber, Craig Mossberg, Doug and Ann Lewis and Jon Hanson.  We met at the mouth of Big Cottonwood and since Darin brought the only Healey in the lineup, he was given the task of leading us up to Guardsman Pass summit. We passed a bit of snow in some shady areas but all things considered, road conditions could not have been better. Darin left us at that point to drive back to SLC for a prior engagement and the rest of us forged on to Midway for lunch. We were a bit late for serious fall colours - those extensive Aspen groves just past the summit had to be spectacular. Now they are all leafless. After lunch, we decided simply to retrace our route in order to avoid I-80 and that crazy traffic. Near the summit, the road on the inside lane got pretty bad for several hundred yards. The slope was steep enough and the pothole density high enough that my Miata was actually having a hard time getting traction but managed to make it to the top. After we got to the bottom of the canyon, we all went our separate ways.

Trapper's Loop Drive - September 23

"It was a dark and stormy night"...not really, but the weather could have been better. The temperature never got higher than around 55 (my guess), overcast and some spitting rain (but not enough to bother putting the top up on the Miata). Despite all of that, it was a fun drive. Don and Julie McEligot made the drive down from Idaho to join Doug and Ann Lewis, Dave and Sandy Maxwell, Jim Revel and his friend Karl Walker, Jon Hanson and Jim Thornton.

We started off around 9:30 am  from the Home Depot on 3rd West and 21st South in SLC and worked our way north on the Legacy Highway through Ogden to the mouth of Ogden Canyon. Then up the canyon to Huntsville, where we had lunch at the Shooting Star Saloon, supposedly the longest continuoulsy running business in Utah.The building, which houses the Shooting Star saloon, was erected in the 1850s in Huntsville as a mercantile to serve the fledgling community. It became a saloon in 1879, and has been there ever since.  This saloon even survived 14 years of Prohibition and remained open. One unique feature of the saloon is the ceiling, which is home to (by all accounts) around 14,000 dollar bills (signed by saloon visitors from all around the wrorld over the years). I should add that the menu is limited (this is a saloon, remember) - but the burgers are terrific!

After lunch, we broke up to go our separate ways. The bulk of us headed down highway 167 to Morgan where we picked up highway 66 to East Canyon and on into SLC via I-80. Many thanks to Jim Thornton for leading the caravan.

Classic Car Show - Park City

Once again, the Classic Car Show in Park City was a great success.There was a really nice representation of classic British, German and American cars and trucks as well as some really impressive exotic cars. The BAHC was represented by Jim Revel, Jim Thornton, Jon Hanson, Darin Graber, Bob Markmann and our two new members John Mackay and Bob Keeney. Darin Graber won Best in Class/ Austin Healey with his 1957 100-6 and Jim Revel won the Class Award/Austin Healey with his 1956 100-4. Congratulations to both! Award winners in all other classes can be found in the link below.

An added bonus was  a tour of at least a dozen Ford GT's down Main Street just above the Classic Car Show. Evidently, the Ford GT club had an event (50+ cars) at the Utah Motorsports Campus (Miller) on Thursday and they were still in the area.  

Many thanks to Jim Revel for organizing this event and to all those who brought their cars and helped out during the day.

New Member

We have another new member we would like to welcome to B.A.H.C. - Bob and Candi Keeney in Park City Utah.  After several years of traveling back and forth between Park City and California they bought a home in Park City and brought their ’67 BJ8 with them. Bob said his Healey is in good condition and as soon as licensed in Utah should be good to go.
