I had an outing and took pictures of the TR8s I hung with this last weekend for a British Car Show in Frederick, Maryland. I helped coordinate some of the activities and as usual had to get greasy for a few hours.

We had one TR7, MGB-GT with a 5.0 Rover V8 and the rest all TR8s. The show had a total of 15 wedges in the show field and at least one TR8 in the parking lot.

It's been decades since I was at Sugarloaf Mtn., but that place always p*ssed me off back then because they used to have a sign at the bottom that said NO MOTORCYCLES ALLOWED.

Do you know is this still true?
