I just signed up Mr. Spit so my beautiful bride and myself can get into the VTR National this September at Shelton Vineyards, NC. Is anyone else thinking about going to this? We're looking forward to driving over and enjoying a few days cruising around the mountain roads with a bunch of Triumphs (and other British cars).

We are the host club and look forward to a large attendance. Hoping to have my 1968 triumph GT6 ready for this show. Website is www.vtr2014.com. We just had our spring show at this venue and had 270 British cars of various makes.

Here's a teaser photo. When the car show was finishing up, a light rain shower popped up and most people scattered. Walking back to where Mr. Spit was parked (now all alone in the filed!) I took a few pretty good photos (if I do say so myself). Here's one and probably the best photo I've ever taken of Mr. Spit.

BTW - I did not win any awards! We were beat by a 1980 Spitfire pulling a cool home made trailer - front half round tail, back half, square tail.

Just created this video of several photos I took. ope you enjoy it.

Well, I need to correct one statement in my last post.

When my beautiful bride and I made plans to attend the VTR Convention, we didn't realize that the awards ceremony coincided with the Saturday evening banquet. We opted for a private dinner elsewhere that evening, which turned out to be a very enjoyable dinning experience for us. Anyway, we were told about the ceremony and after our dinner we drove over and watched that last of the awards being passed out.

So we left the convention thinking that another Spitfire had won the Participants' Choice in the MKIV/1500 class. Look what arrived in yesterdays mail. We were completely surprised by this.
