New Member Jerry Townsend came forth with a
great idea of having a magnet on the reverse side of

in our clothes. Jerry will be getting us information
as to price and where this can be done. Great
thinking, Jerry!

out to be three of the clearest days seen in the
Smokies and Blue ridge in years (traditionally the
Tour Director gets all the credit, or blame, for the

Western North Carolina British Car Club, lots of
good eats and drinks added up to one of the best
Fall Tours in recent memory.
Over 20 Jaguars showed up for the Show,
including 7 Series III E-Types. AJS member Jerry
