This was the 18th annual show put on by the Greater Ozark British Motor Club. They're in SW Missouri, lots of members live in Springfield, but they put the show on in Carthage.

Every 5 years there's a gathering of all of the MG clubs. 2016 was the fifth of these, scheduled for Louisville, KY. "Maintaining the breed". We went with 4 other couples from Tulsa - another MGB, and two TD's. Louisville is about 700 miles from Tulsa, so we took it in 2 days, stopping for the night at Poplar Bluff, MO, each way.
