The Catawba Valley British Motor Club is a very active club that offers lots of fun events and gatherings for its members. We are always happy to have others join our fun club. We are loosely centered in Hickory located in the Piedmont of North Carolina. The Blue Ridge area of the Appalachian Mountains provides much beauty as well as many wonderful rolling mountain roads for the British automobiles we love to drive.
 
The club meets on the second Tuesday of each month to discuss club business and plan activities. These meetings are scheduled at local 'pubs' where good food and atmosphere provide congenial environments for the gathering of the 'faithful'......dedicated to the restoration, preservation and enjoyment of all British automobiles - from the diminutive 'Mini' to the largest Rolls' limousine and from the oldest MG to the newest Aston Martin.
 
It is probably safe to say that all of CVBMC's members enjoy the design, the beauty, the performance and class of British automobiles. But we also enjoy driving them. And this very beautiful area of North Carolina offers some of the best in sport driving fun.
 

Our members gather often to enjoy the many club sponsored events and social gatherings planned throughout the year. We regularly get together for drives with the gang or one of our fun weekend getaways! Many of our members also participate and compete in events sponsored by other Car Club's around the state.
For example:

• Euro Fest at the BMW plant in Greer SC
• MG's on the Green, sponsored by the Metrolina MG Car Club
• The Moonshine Rally in Elkin
• "The Gathering" show held at Shelton Vineyards, Dobson, NC
• Brits at the Beach in Wilmington, NC
• Southern British Car Show in Chattanooga, TN

and many other local and not-so-local shows and events. We love to drive our cars and we find the excuse to get them out often.

We recently started gathering at coffee shops in the Hickory area on one Saturday a month for “Cars & Coffee.” We kick tires for a while, sip great beverages and then head out to explore in our British cars. Sometimes we have a destination in mind, sometimes we just let a destination find us. We have fun no matter what happens.

 
If you would like to join the Club, please visit our Membership page or download our Membership Application. We do hope that you will enjoy our website and please contact us if there is any information we can help you with!
 

Here are the travel plans for the upcoming trip to the Shelton Vineyards Car Show on Saturday April 12.

Group #1
Leaving from the Box Car Grille (Claremont Exit 135 on I-40) at 8:00 am - Sharp. They will travel on interstates to the Dobson exit on I-77 exit 93 hten on to the vineyard.

Group #2
Leaving from 4 Brothers in Wilkesboro (just south of 421 on Rte. 16) Wheels rolling at 9:00 am - sharp. We'll take 421 to Red White & Blue road and then travel up 268 to I-77 and then exit at #93 to the vineyard.

You will notice that both groups are planning on leaving at a specific time. That means Fueled, Food and Flushed at the departure time. Many of the group want to be there early so we can get good parking and picnic spots.

There is food available on site but most of the group will be bringing something to share... it makes the day much more fun.

Hope to see you Saturday, it's always a great time.
