Admire the Hills Drive

Attention all who may be reading this, particularly if you live in the St Louis/Metro East area (or within reasonable distance of StL). If you’re looking for something fun to do on Sunday, 15 August, SLTOA members are making a drive to Hermann for some quality time at the Stone HIll Winery (to include a meal and most likely some form of libation).

If interested, come on out and join us on an entertaining drive through one of the more scenic areas of Missouri, type/model of car doesn’t matter. We’ll meet at the St Louis BreadCo in Wildwood (2400 Taylor Rd; the Dierbergs shopping center on the south side of MO 100) at 9:30 with a 10:00 AM departure. Y’all come!

Once More Unto the Breach!

Yeah, I’ve been rather delinquent in posting content on this blog but rest assured, the local Triumph Faithful have remained very busy as we’ve moved into the hot/humid days of summer (w/ the occasional massive thunderstorm, natch).

For example, on Tuesday, 19 July, a bunch of us did the annual gathering in a member’s back yard for good food and good conversation, along with a brief business meeting. We had a really good turnout of both Triumphs (plus a couple of Brand X), members and friends. Not sure how many years SLTOA’s done this particular gathering, but it’s one of the standards of our annual schedule.

On Sunday, 25 July, one of our members continued to carry the flag for extinct British sports cars in the Boeing Sports Car Club autocross series. Three of us from SLTOA actually competed, with Dave in the TR8, Creig in a Honda Civic and yours truly in the backup car, the Hyundai Elantra GT N-Line. Ah, but next month (22 August), I’ll return my TR8 to the fray. Should be a hoot, two Wedges on the field of competition. Maybe we can talk Creig into bringing out his Spitfire…

As always, if you’re in the vicinity of St Louis/Metro East (or even a tad farther afield) and are interested in participating in one of our events, monitor the calendar at and come on out. We’re always happy to welcome new cars/owners and again, the cars don’t have to be of English origin. See y’all out there!
