Just a reminder for those in SoCal..

Next weekend is the annual San Diego Rolling British Car Days.

13th Annual
San Diego Rolling British Car Day

Gather by 8:30am at the Corner Bakery café at Westfield Mission Valley Center (TG 1269-B3) – First cars out at 9:30am for a tour through the Bay and Central San Diego areas – Ending at S.D. Automotive Museum in Balboa Park (TG 1289-D3) for our Picnic (B.Y.O.) and Raffle.

I anticipate attending this event...with my still somewhat bent MGA. I will be happy to hook up with any BCF members..

By the way.. we have a great 50 year old MG club in San Diego... If you are not already a member, go to San Diego MG Club for more information....

Crud! I'm taking my B to the shop on monday but even if I wasn't I wouldn't be back until late Saturday anyway.

I feel bad too as I've missed the last couple of years.

Wonder if anybodied get upset if I crashed the event in my 928? :smirk:

Rays,

There is a usual turnout of maybe thirty cars, give or take...MGs, Triumphs, Healeys, the ubiquitous Minis, et al. It is always great fun and the picnic afterwards always offers a great time to show and tell and to meet fellow LBC affectionatos... :cheers:

This year's route ends up at Balboa Park's Car Museum rather than the out of the way spots of the last two years...So, innocent spectators will abound.

They usually offer two routes... one shorter for the faint of heart and a longer one for those who have the confidence that their cars can take it... :driving:

Hope you can make it. :laugh:

It seems to me that for the last few years it’s been well over a hundred cars each time.

This year they had two routes, <span style="font-style: italic">almost</span> exactly the same but in a few places they split us up so we could double back on each other and see lots of other cars instead of just the ones immediately in front and behind you.

PC,

Great set of pics!!!

Actually, I missed last year... It seems the memory gets foggy when it has so many years to remember!! :rolleyes:

2006 was a meager turnout as I recall... And I do stand corrected on the number of cars that show up. Sorry 'bout that. :cheers:
