    Dan, will you be attending this one? It's a new location for an event that has bounced around in the past. The last several years have been in the Roswell City Hall parking lot. Because the event is on a Sunday (and because of the city hall parking lot), no vendors, no music, no food, no drink. No gifts, no prizes. No nothing. Just cars. The nearest sandwich was a half mile walk away.

    This year's event looks like it'll be held in conjunction with a festival, suggesting that there will be food vendors, etc.

    Anyone interested in an mg steering rack, aftermarket fiberglass top, or a heater core? Cheap. 40 for the rack, 20 for the core, $ 125 for the top. Its in primer(previous owner).

    I can bring with tomorrow as long as I know today, planning on being there around 10 am.

    The Yellow Tiger is Bill B's; The Red Tiger just arriving is Alan Rhodes, Barry is riding shotgun; & My Blue Boy V6 is getting squeezed in between "Them-thar Tigers" :)

    Here is a bit of the British Car Event in Atlanta June 10, 2018. I edited Bill WORD doc inorder to include some members not pictured. Here is the edited doc:
    Atlanta British Motor Car Day 2018 By Bill Bulpitt/Deep South Representative

    The Atlanta British Motor Car Day was held June 10 at a new venue in conjunction with the Peachtree Corners Arts Festival. This is at least the fifth location for this event (most recently in Roswell, GA) and hopefully this move will be permanent. Having the event at an Art Show resulted in better parking for spectators and more casual observers stopping by to appreciate the wonders of British Cars. The attached photographs will tell the story.
    1. Sunbeam Owners gathered together – Bulpitt, Freeman, DanR Richardson (front kneeling) SAOCA Treasurer, Alan Rhodes, Greg (Greggers) Feist SAOCA Tech, Tom Johnson SAOCA Membership Dir, SD Steve Pace, Willis, Sybrandt Sr. and Jr. (front)
    2. Shaded setting for car show
    3. More of the Sunbeams
    4. Race Tiger plus Alpines
    5. Dan Richardson Alpine SV Blue Boy V6
    6. Dan’s V6 Conversion
    7. Relative newcomer Mark Willis
    8. Bill Bulpitt’s MKII
    9. Alan Rhodes survivor (40K miles)
    10. Sybrandt race Tiger with 3 generations
    11. Bill Freeman Tiger (work in progress)
    12. Greg Feist V6 Alpine
    13. Steve Pace V6 Alpine
    14. Some members present but not in the PIC Cris Brown (Jeb Stuart) and wife can in their Series III; James (SAOCA VP) Barry K, Bob Fugate, & I might have missed a few more ?

    Best looking British Cars at the Event:)
