It's getting closer...... If you have not been to one of these you are truly missing a great time...... as much as it is about the cars it's more so about the people, every year you meet people who are "old friends" from the last event or events, (it's what class reunions should be) and new people who become instant friends.

We tell our war stories and share our "how too's" if your having car issue's there are always a dozen helpers with their box's of tool's and the willing-ness to share the spare's they brought along "just in case".

I've shared my home and others have shared theirs with me that's just how friendly and social these events are and how lasting the friendships become, never boring and always something to do if you wish.

So if your on the fence about trying it, please come and see for yourself just what a fun time you will have with people that share your interest.

Cheers.       Brett.

Oil and filter changed, car washed, carpets cleaned drove around for the last couple of days and all seem's well (Knock wood). So now just waiting to head out down the road to this years event, hope to see you there............

I sure would like to be going, but I believe that my schedule will not allow. I hope that there is a great turnout for this East event. Hopefully you all have a wonderful trouble-free time and I will be looking forward to viewing posts of the event.

I have just posted some photos from just before this morning's excellent drive event (Thanks Arvin & other organizers!)

Car line-up from morning drive
 
The cars shown in the line-up are only about 85% of the cars present because some arrived later in the day or elected not to participate in this morning's drive event. In particular there are three or four more excellent Interceptors and one nice bronze Jensen GT that either showed up later in the day or stayed at the hotel rather than go on the drive. There are also three photos of the exterior of a wonderful old stone cathedral we visited on the campus of the University of the South in Sewanee Tennessee.

The afternoon's event included a poker run and an evening informal BBQ event here at the Smoke House Inn in Monteagle Tennessee. Later a fun time was had by all at an silent and live auction for items such as Jensen parts & memoribilia, commemorative shirts from previous events, bourbon whiskey from a local brewery, jewelry items, commemorative baseball hats, and other interesting donated items.

Jeremy Mau elected to not participate in the afternoon poker run. Instead he had a pleasent visit at a wonderful family owned local repair shop where they let him assist in replacing a failed u-joint in the driveshaft of his white 1974 Jensen-Healey.

I will try to post other pictures from the car show tomorrow. Hopefully I will be able to capture photos of the missing cars from this morning's drive.

I just uploaded 60 more photos of the JensenEast2012 meet. These latest ones are from the car show in Cowan TN on Saturday. Included are the CV8, 541 and the Jensen GT cars.

In case anyone has not figured it out, I take photos of the cars and just happen to catch whatever people are hanging around at that point. There were two other people at the meet taking lost of photos and hopefully they will post some of their photos as well. I know there were a few group photos taken during the drive on Friday and someone was taking photos during the BBQ on Friday evening. Also I hope someone can post any photos taken of me while I was giving my tech talk on fuel injection and crank-fired ignition conversions on Thursday evening.
