Through the Windscreen: Summer 1996

Maybe by the time these words pass across your winter-weary retinas, we will be wending our way eastwards in the Mossmobile, on the way to the first of the great British car events scheduled for this summer’s Moss Road Show.

So that you might come up and visit with us as we travel this wonderful land, I thought it might be of interest for you to know where we’ve planned to attend. However, before we finally head into the sunrise, we have a rather unique event at the new Buttonwillow Raceway in California, where Moss is to sponsor the MG/Triumph Challenge and the Sprite/Mini Challenge on the weekend of June 14-16. A Popular Vote Car Show will be included in the activities, and a cost of 20 bucks admission for the weekend will not break anybody’s piggybank!

Following the huge MG ’96 meet at Indianapolis in late June, we hope to make our way to Albany, New York, for the Vintage Triumph Register Convention on July 10-14 hosted by the Adirondack Triumph Association. Our next port of call on August 2-4 will be the Meadowbrook Concours incorporating a full race program at Waterford Hills Racetrack in Clarkston, Michigan. The concours itself is said to equal Pebble Beach, and this year will specially feature MG automobiles. It is hoped that EX 181 will be a star attraction from the Heritage Museum in England, and there could be an MGF on display!

Then on to a hardy annual—the MG Summer Party in Grand Rapids (August 16-18) before swinging south to the Heartland Autofest in quaint downtown Davenport, Iowa (August 24-25). Following the Kansas City British Car Meet over the Labor Day weekend, we head north again to greet our friends in Chicago at the British Car Festival on September 8.

Then we head west for home, but first we’re attending the Colorado Conclave in Denver, a huge British car extravaganza on September 14-15. Being there for the first time with the Mossmobile, we are looking forward to it very much. Finally, up into the San Bernadino mountains for Triumphest ’96 at Big Bear Ski Resort in late September brings us nearly to the end of our travels for the year, with just the San Diego British Car Meet to attend the first weekend in October.

We hope to see you at one or more of these happenings! Have a great summer!
