Welcome!

REDMG003The British Car Club of Charleston began in 1983 with a handful of young men and women and is now 225 members strong and growing steadily. We are proud to state that the average monthly meeting attendance is 35 to 40 members including an average of 8 to 10 women.

Dr. Tom’s Drive to History – Wow!

Report:

We had 18 cars meet at the Coleman Garage last Saturday to motor up to Quinby Plantation and St. Thomas and St. Denis Church in Cainhoy. We even had a drop-in guest join us, Bill Ahern, with his ’65 VW as well as Lane Anderson from the Cars and Coffee group.

Tom gave two wonderful, enthralling talks at each location. His familiarity with the history made it easy to visualize what happened on those important dates in history as he described the players and their backgrounds, their actions, their thoughts, and how things moved and played out at those locations. You could feel the heat, the desperate actions, the determination of the parties involved.

It was a beautiful day, a wonderful drive up through the backcountry north of Mt. Pleasant, ending in a great lunch at the Cainhoy Cooking Depot.

He and his lovely wife Jackie opened their home many times to host club events and let all of us enjoy the fellowship of their company and each other.

A delighful, elegant and gracious gentleman, Bob will be very much missed. We wish all the best to his family and thank them for sharing Bob with us.
