    Folks - biggest Brit car show in Georgia is this weekend but I have heard zero from other 'beamers in Georgia - we need to form an Atlanta area chapter to focus on getting Sunbeams to these events.

    See you there - if you are going...

    That is somewhere between a stretch and inaccurate.

    The show was super! The sky threatened rain but the cars came anyway.

    The Berry Collage campus is huge and almost all green-space with the show being held each year in a beautiful field. It's quite a sight to see :) I don't know the total cars present but perhaps a few hundred, divided by Marque.

    In the Sunbeam Section we had a small but quality showing of later Alpines plus a couple of perfect Minxes and several Tigers, including a very original Tiger II still in factory paint.

    There were over 400 cars yesterday. The two Minx's were one red and one white, the 4 Tigers were all red, and the three Alpines, 2 were red and then there was the "Airpine". You could call it red or green, or black, or, well all you all know what colors it is. How about that for grammer? Of the Alpines, one was from Atlanta, one was from Marietta and one was from Warner Robins, where were all the Sunbeams???:)

    Unfortunately, as I said before I had a previous commitment that I couldn't get out of, but on top of that the Gas Company decided I needed to move the meter and they are only responsible for the supply to the meter if I want gas into the house that's MY problem..... other that that I would rather have been at Berry College. I'd also really like to attend the Greenville show but that ones not in the cards either. Heading to South Flordia...
    So that's why I didn't show up. :mad:

    Well there are many things in Life I enjoy one of them is British cars and the list goes on. This time a prior commitment found me camped out next to small trout stream in the Nantahala Wilderness after a 5 mile hike in to it with another 6 down from Standing Indian mountain the next day. Sometimes I need solitude and it was great. Just put the Alpine back on the floor and hopefully later today will slip the new distributor . If everything else is good she should be running.I Did miss you guys but the turnout kinda reminded me of the years when the show at Townsend had so few Sunbeams the judge didnt want to allow a class for them. We cant always be there but glad some can.
    Enjoy all Life has for you

    Allan I like your paint job. It just says fun and Good Times. I remember coming back from the Invasion and seeing you run at speed down the Interstate. Twice we met up on the road. I think you need to take detailed pictures so you can repaint it the same. I like the fact that you have put your time and money spent on building a dependable "Alpine Runner".
