        In March  we   had  a last minute event on the  23rd as the renowned ?MGA Guru?, Barney            John & Susan
        Gaylord,  made a two hour meet and greet appearance at The Vintage Classic Garage in                  Looney
        Franklin.                                                                                        1985 Rolls Royce
        A number of  fans showed up to say 'hi' and  to ask questions about the classic MGA and             Silver Spur,
        hear his stories  about traveling the US for the last nine  years with his son.  The Gaylords    Centenary edition
        drive  from town to town visiting various British car clubs as a hobby. What a life!

        Next, I have an update article on my engine rebuild for my TR6 in this issue, beginning on
        page 35. It's coming along and I can't wait to get back to driving Tennessee's backroads.
        We're still  looking for a few more  hosts for our monthly  Club Dinners.  If you'd like to
        volunteer to host a dinner, please let me know at NashvilleBrit
        We can do this all year round.  Let?s keep it going!

        Remember  to  RSVP  for  the  May  6th  Coronation  Big  Lunch  at  Snug  Harbor  Farm  in
        Unionville, TN. Please let Cherie know you are coming at t    You can
        also RSVP on our new website.
        Full information for the Coronation lunch  is on pages 6-7 of this issue and the event is
        just around the corner. ( Some of our new members named  at right  have stately cars
        that  would be  a perfect fit for the Coronation Lunch Show up and Shine portion of the
        day.  Who will be crowned  the king and Queen of Motoring? That remains to be seen.

        That's  all for now folks.
        Stay safe, have fun, and keep?em on the road!
