The Brits are coming! Coming up this month on Saturday, Sept 26, 2015, from 9 AM-1 PM, THE DINER in Sevierville will be hosting Healeys in the Smokies.
This event is part of the scheduled Sept 24-27 Healeys in the Smokies major event.
The Atlanta Chapter of the Austin Healey Club of America is one of the largest and most active chapters in North America. They are over 125 members strong and enjoy friendships with each other as well as the cars. The club was sanctioned in 1981.
Austin-Healey was a British sports car maker established in 1952 through a joint venture between the Austin division of the British Motor Corporation (BMC) and the Donald Healey Motor Company (Healey), a renowned automotive engineering and design firm.
BMC merged with Jaguar Cars in 1966 to form British Motor Holdings (BMH). Donald Healey left BMH in 1968 when it merged into British Leyland. Healey then joined Jensen Motors, which had been making bodies for the “big Healeys” since their inception in 1952, and became their chairman in 1972. Austin-Healey cars were produced until 1972 when the 20-year agreement between Healey and Austin came to an end.
We are sure you will enjoy viewing these classic cars in THE DINER’s parking lot from 9-1, overlapping a bit with our regular Sept Cruise In. Come see these classics from across the pond.
Our regular September 26 Cruise In takes place from 12-5, THE DINER’s Kick Back Kruse In for Sevierville after Shades of the Past & The Rod Run to the south of us.
