British V8 2016 in Townsend, Tennessee

BritishV8 2016

May 8 - 11

Townsend, Tennessee

Our twentieth annual British V8 meet was planned and hosted by Dan Masters (danmas) and Don Watson.

Participants enjoyed tech sessions, a tour of the Tennessee Aviation Museum, group drives along some of the most beautiful mountain roads in America - including "The Tail of the Dragon", live bluegrass music, and much more. Each evening we indulged in convivial lie swapping and tire kicking in the host hotel parking lot. We wrapped things up with our traditional fundraising banquet and auction. A grand time was had by all!
