Reminder everyone ! The first AZROC picnic is just around the corner....

party-crashing WILL be allowed y'know <G>
I really need everyone to confirm w/ me - what you will be bringing for the
pot-luck, etc (Steve H. has spoken for the potato salad !!!) More info in a

to Have a PICNIC !!!!</A>
Onto the ulterior motive section (your mission, should you choose to accept
I have this friend ya see.... he likes Jags. So much in fact that he has
years reading books, filing facts, and generally over-tightening his
sphincter with vivid hopes that one day he shall be driving in style in his
anal-retentively-over-restored E-Type "Crumpet-Catcher". Poor Harvey has
actually never owned a sports-car. Today, Mark drove my Roadster up to visit
Harvey. I wasn't there, but I heard that the boy's eyes got REAL big when he
saw the little red & white beast. One thing led to another, and now he's
Roadster shopping. (do you see where this is going ?).
Our job: Harvey will be at the picnic - we need to steer him in the right
direction- AWAY from a finicky Jag that as a starter sports car will leave a
gigantic empty crater in his wallet and him standing on the side of the road
with a crude cardboard sign that reads "Supporting Jaguar Mechanic - please
help", and onto more exciting things like a unique little Japanese sports car
that he can actually DRIVE on a regular basis. (imagine that!) (Besides....
Solex is easier to spell than Stromberg and you will never hear a debate on
how the "U" in Datsun is pronounced <G>) .
If you're for the challenge let me know !
(translate as: RSVP for the picnic please !)
eMail for maps/questions, whatever...
PS: no flames about the Jag... I love old Brit cars, and will let my buddy
have his Jag when he's proven himself worthy. <G>
