Rallye Glenwood Springs

Rallye Glenwood Springs, Colorado from June 7-9, 2019 For car lovers in Colorado, summer can be a long time coming. Spring in Colorado is known as the “mud season,” when skiers and snowboarders reluctantly hang up their gear while the summer sports people count the days until June.

How to Ruin a Car Show

It’s easy. Just tell a proud owner you’re putting their car in this class, when they want to be in that one. I’ve seen it happen before, and likely been responsible myself. After hosting the British Car Festival in California for five years, and now preparing for our second Motorfest next summer, we’re still trying…


Import Carlisle: Soggy, but Fun

By Kathleen M. Mangan Thanks to this year’s British Invasion theme, the Carlisle Import/Kit-Replicar Nationals—held May 16-18 in Carlisle, Penn.—had a great turnout among all of the British marques.

The Classic Car Show in Birmingham

Following my article in the last issue of Moss Motoring in which I recounted tales of the TR Register’s huge summer show, I feel that a few words about what we British get up to with our classic cars during the notoriously wet and windy English winter season might be of interest. Not being blessed…

British Car Enthusiasts Alive

This year, I spent part of May and most of June on the east coast, first as a judge at the ever-more-enjoyable Greenwich Concours d’Elegance. Best of Show went to a Rolls Royce Silver Wraith convertible owned by well-known collector Noel Thompson. This choice pleased me particularly because it featured a massive yet rakish one-off…
