Upcoming Events and Photos

Post by 17thAirborne » Sun Jan 27, 2019 5:42 pm

I know this is a bit late, but I'm between computers and just figured out how to downsize images from my cell to my tablet via wifi hot spot.

Here is an image of some TNMVPA member's vehicles at the 2018 Veteran's Day celebration at the Mission BBQ in Nashville hosted by the restaurant's owner who is a great supporter of our veterans.I should have taken more pics.

If you are ever in Nashville, please visit the restaurant, enjoy the great bbq and admire the decorations and historical artifacts adorning the walls.

Already getting commitments for a few vehicles from club members for this worthwhile event. Weather permitting we'll have a WWII Taylorcraft doing a flyover, and the hosts are working to get a P-51.

The TNMVPA will host a "fix your vehicle in a day" workshop at one member's facility on Saturday 23 March 2019. Everyone will share expertise and tools and pile on a vehicle to get it running again. The goal is to accomplish things that can be done within 6 or so hour time frame. If you wish to participate contact me via pm, or go to the club's website and use the contact info there.

We had a great meeting this evening, enjoying a great meal, and conversation. During the meeting we discussed new chapter officers and upcoming events such as the Veteran's Half Marathon fundraiser, the 23 March workshop and the Tennessee Military Collector's Association event in April. The group plans on displaying as many vehicles as possible at the event. We also talked about sponsoring some local MV shows, working with car collector groups, and in the future hosting a regional event or convoy. There will also be a quarterly newsletter published electronically.

As always, new members are encouraged to attend.

We are just one week away from the Patriot Half Marathon Veteran's Fundraiser. We have a commitment from the Werner Military Museum for two vehicle, a TNNG M998, a 42WLA, a Dodge Weapons Carrier and a 5-ton truck. With a little extra work and advertising this annual event could turn into an MV show at the fundraiser each year.

Please pm me if you wish to attend.

Free lunch for MV owners and possible gas voucher to defray the cost of hauling your MV.

What a super event that raised over $10,000 for local veteran's relief fund. There were over 150 racers and four MVs present. We also had a flyover by a restored WWII L-3. I was so awed I missed getting a photo.

Here are pics of the MVs.

Here is Gary Bowen's beautiful 1954 M170 Ambulance. Completely original including the canvas top. Only 4000 produced making this a rare vehicle. I wish I took more pics.
