2020 bestofbritain dunlopSince the dawn of motoring, Britain has built, competed and won with some of the most successful endurance racecars in the world. This year we are celebrating these wonderful machines at the 2020 “Best of Britain” exhibit at the Simeone Foundation Automotive Museum, which will run for a full month from 1/4/2020 to 2/2/2020.

 After almost a year's worth of planning, I am very pleased to report that the 2019 ABRR was a major success! At the time of this writing, we are within a hundred dollars of last year's record number of $42,467. As you know, we drive for the kids every year and we have developed a loyal following. Over 70 percent of past year's ABRR Teams returned to run again! Sponsored by Hagerty with their roadside assistance program and the Ragtops & Roadsters support trailer, we again left no one behind! If you want to donate to push us over last year's record, just click here!

After way too much rain, the skies cleared and the sun shone brightly on our twenty-fifth Spring Open House!  Perkasie borough had blocked off Fourth Street between Walnut and Spruce to provide ample parking for all who brought their favorite British or classic car.

 2018 Before We Put em away

After a half a foot of snow three days earlier, we managed to clear the street on our block and we were pleasantly surprised to see the large number of vintage cars and friends who came out for our annual Before We Put 'em Away Run.

Last August, we attended LOG 36 in Princeton. It was a very nice well-run event. At the banquet it was announced that LOG 37 was to be held in May in Birmingham, AL, at the Barber Motorsports Park. Sounded interesting to me since it stirred memories of when I had the opportunity to get a ride on the track at Barber in a Seven back in 2004 at the first LOG in Birmingham. It was also announced that they planned to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Lotus Super Seven. Ok we are in! I offered a client transport of his Seven, rented a trailer that would hold two Super Sevens, found a friend who wanted to join the run, and soon Al Anspaugh and myself joined of a twenty-Lotus-car, for a two-day caravan to Birmingham!

After the hall darkened, the F1 engines roared to life in the sleepy little Pennsylvania theater as images of racing mostly from the other side pond flashed across the screen! Dave Hobbs, Leigh Diffy, and Steve Matchett ran down the isles to a rock star entrance as the sold out house cheered them on. David opened by saying "Who knew? Sellersville, Pennsylvania?" An image of the recent Ferrari win at the season opener in Australia with Vettel jumping in the air captured the energy that everyone had after the season opener.

On a bright sunny Friday morning about forty British cars including and their drivers gathered together at McKenzie’s Pub in West Chester, PA for the start of the 2016 America’s British Reliability Run. Why a pub at 9AM? Well, McKenzie’s Pub was to be the planned destination of our 600-plus mile adventure, but more about that later.

It all started about 15 years or so ago, when one Triumph owner said to another, “Do you want to go to England” to get some parts at a “TR Spares Show?”. “Spares” is parts in the Queen’s proper English. And so it began. For many years the Stoneleigh Park Triumph Spares show was the “go to” place, myself joining in the pilgrimage on what became the largest group, in 2003. About of a dozen of us from our local Triumph club, the DVT went on a 3-day adventure to rummage through parts bins looking that that bit made of un-obtainium here in the states. Gearboxes and overdrive were disassembled in hotel rooms that later made theirway to our cars and Carlisle.
