    The British Car Fayre Atlanta

    Went to the British Car Fayre in Atlanta to day. It was a great day for it clear sky with a few clouds to keep the heat down. There was a great turnout of all types of British cars.
    I had my TR3A there. There were probable 8 Tr3s there and a lot of 4s, 5s, 6s two 7s and one TR8 I neglected to get a count on the Triumphs ao a group photo.

    I have included a few photos and will try to put the rest somewhere I can post a link.

    The E Types in the background of the TR3 photo are in the overflow parking.

    Dave - thanks for posting those photos. And extra thanks for labeling each photo with the marque!

    Is that your TR3?

    Not my TR3
    I spent too much time on my walk around taking photos of other cars and talking to owners and completely forgot/missed group shots along the Triumph section.

    It was a little overwhelming and great to get to talk to so many other owners. Also my wife was on crutches so I had to make sure she was OK.
    I missed the Delorean on my walk around. Saw it as they left.

    The Queen was doing photos. She stood up well to the heat.

    This is a great show! Hard to find a place to park if you are a spectator but they arranged for parking at several church parking lots and a shuttle bus would pick you up and then take you back so much easier.
    Here is my favorite.

    Hello Eric

    I see you got the Delorean that I missed.

    Did you make it down the Triumph street?

    I see the driver got slightly dehydrated in the Atlanta heat!

    It was around 96 degrees on the day of the show so yes Paul that driver was affected by the heat!
    David I did make the walk up the street past all of the Triumphs. A friend was there with a freshly restored primrose colored TR3 that was for sale-beautiful car. Eric

    Hello Eric

    It was hot. We went through a lot of bottled water.

    This one?

    I was parked a few cars further down on the other side.

    A friend saved the day for me and got this shot.

    I hope the patch on the ground is from the AC not the engine.

    Thanks for the great pictures, for some reason I never took any. That is my TVR.

    I know the problem. I did the same with my TR. Lots of photos of other cars but none of mine.
