The British Car Club of Western North Carolina is once again hosting its Autumn in the Mountains car show, featuring sleek and stunning cars of all makes and countries of origin. The weekend's events include a Friday evening social for registered entrants, self-guided drives around some of the area's most scenic byways and a participant-judged car show. If you love classic British cars, but don't have one of your own to show off, it's free to stop by Jackson Park to see the cars and motorcycles in person.
Over the past 11 years, the British Car Club of Western North Carolina reports that it has raised more than $21,000 in donations to local charities, and members have high hopes for this year's efforts. Car enthusiasts and curious spectators are invited to support the cause just by viewing the cars in person. So rev your engines for a day of British cars and the people who love them.
