Celebrating its 35th year, the Shenandoah Valley British Car Club has the distinction of running one of the oldest annual British car festivals on the East Coast. This year's show is presented by Crown MINI of Richmond with generous support from Mike Gassman Automotive - British Car Specialists.

Open to British marques in any condition (and occasionally some motorcycles) gather from more than 12 states beneath the massive trees of Ridgeview Park in Waynesboro, Virginia.

From show winners to daily drivers to even the "I-barely-got-it-running", all British cars are welcome at this fun family event celebrating British automotive design and the people who drive these Little British Cars.

Awards, based on voting of the participants, will be presented at the Saturday night banquet. Door prizes will be awarded on the field to pre-registered participants. Pre-registration fee is $25, registration at gate is $30. So register now!

We are very happy to be again featuring The Holiday Inn Staunton Conference Center as our host hotel - site of the Friday night reception and the Saturday night awards dinner. The hotel is conveniently located near the intersection of I-81 and I-64, in historic Staunton, Virginia.

Our Friday night reception has proved to be very popular, so please add it to your schedules. We will have a special room available where you can purchase drinks, bar food/snacks, or a full meal. With videos in the background, this is an opportunity to get together with old friends or meet new ones. If you have not participated in this event before, you may want to make it a priority this year!

The Car Show on Saturday offers music, door prizes, and fabulous food on site. Waynesboro is the home of Fishburne Military Academy, and the Moss Museum and is only minutes from the famous and scenic Skyline Drive and Blue Ridge Parkway. These are a joy to drive, and offer a beautiful view of the fall foliage.

Come join us for a wonderful time and a chance to see many exciting British cars and meet the people who love them! Please note preregistration cutoff is 9/25/16 and this is a rain or shine event so registration fees are non-refundable, and banquet fees are only refundable on request up to the cutoff date of 9/25/16.

The American MGB Associationís 39th Annual Meet - AMGBA MEET 2016 - for the MGB, MGB-GT & Midget - Waynesboro, Virginia - September 30 thru October 1, 2016

MG sports car production as we know it was discontinued in 1980 with the closing of the famed Abingdon-On-Thames works in the United Kingdom. But these modern day classics are being preserved forever here in North America by members of the American MGB Association which serves enthusiastic MGB, MGB-GT, and MG Midget owners throughout the USA, Canada and throughout the world. Each year, the AMGBA holds its National Meet.

The 1978 initial gathering was held in Chicago. In 1979 and 1980 the AMGBA National Conventions were held in New York state, in Ithaca and Glens Falls. The organizationís success led to renting the world famous Indianapolis 500 Motor Speedway in 1981 for the AMGBA National Convention. In 1982, the AMGBA held its National Convention outside the USA in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. In the years 1983 and 1984, the AMGBA went west for the first time in Lake Tahoe, California and Boulder, Colorado. In 1985, the AMGBA held two conventions in Santa Barbara, California and Abingdon, Illinois. In 1986, we visited Texas during its 150 year anniversary in San Antonio, Texas and in 1987 we visited the Saratoga Springs area of beautiful upstate New York. In 1988, the convention site was Kansas City, Missouri. In 1989, we visited the Great Northwest part of our country in Springfield, Oregon.

In 1990 the convention was held in Atlanta, Georgia which was a first for that area of the country. In 1991 we returned to the site of our first convention in Chicago and in 1992, we returned to the West Coast to the beautiful San Francisco Bay area in Palo Alto, California. In 1993, we traveled to New England at Keene, New Hampshire near the site of the Westminster MG Museum. In 1994, we went for the first time to the San Diego, California area at the Del Mar race track. In 1995 we went to Memphis, Tennessee, home of the blues and Elvis Presley. In 1996 we joined with all of the major MG clubs in North America for MG Indy '96 in Indianapolis, Indiana at the Indy 500 track. In 1997 we were on the West Coast in the San Francisco area at Palo Alto, California. In 1998, we were in Charlotte, North Carolina at the Lake Campus of Davidson College. In 1999, we went to Los Angeles, California.

In 2000, we went to Armagh, Pennsylvania and joined with the TRF Summer Party and in 2001 we were in Houston, Texas for the Houston MG Club's All British Motor Vehicle Exposition. In 2002 we again went to the San Francisco, California area for the Palo Alto British Car Meet. For 2003 we visited Florida and the Space Coast in Titusville, Florida. In 2004, we visited picturesque Cape Cod in Massachusetts for the Cape Cod British Car Club's British Legends Weekend. In 2005, we were in San Diego, California at Fairbrook Farms in Bonsall for San Diego British Car Day. We were in Maryland in 2006 at the MGs on the Rocks Show and in 2007 we went to Charlotte, North Carolina at the MGs on the Green Show. In 2008 we were in Armagh, Pennsylvania with The Roadster Factory Summer Party and for 2009 we planned for a show in the Central Valley of California.

In 2010 we went to Sussex, Wisconsin for the British Car Field Day. For 2011 we were in Ohio for the first time at Dayton in conjunction with the Annual British Car Day at Eastwood Metropark. We went to the Jersey Shore in 2012 with the Annual Brits on the Beach Show in Ocean Grove, New Jersey. In 2013 we visited Mississippi for the first time to the oldest city on the Mississippi River in conjunction with the English Motoring Club of Mississippi's Brits on the Bluff Show in Natchez, Mississippi. In 2014, we were at New England's largest British car show at the British Invasion in Stowe, Vermont. Meet 2016 was in South Carolina at the Grand Strand British Car Club's Britfest.

For 2016, we will be in Virginia for the first time in Waynesboro at the Shenandoah Valley British Car Festival.

It promises to be a great time and a memorable experience for all that attend. For more information contact the above, write to the American MGB Association, 5433 N. Ashland Ave., Chicago, IL 60640, call 773-769-7084, email us at info@mgclub.org or explore our website at www.mgclub.org .
