Dear California British Car Enthusiast:
Yep, we're back - and at the same time and place! El Camino Park in Palo
Alto on September 8th!!! Last year's, last minute, street renovation
project is finished and we are back on line as usual. This is the first
notification this year as we just confirmed the date with Palo Alto. There
still are some details to be worked out.
GOOD NEWS! The American MGB Association will once again be having their
National West Coast Convention at this meet so the MGB and Midgets will be
the featured marque.
NOT SORTED YET - The British Car Magazine Tour, usually held the day before
(this year would be Sept. 7th), is in question as the Magazine principals
have plans to be in the UK that week but we are working on some other tour
plans for this year - more information to follow.
BAD NEWS! The Greater Los Angeles British Car Meet is still without a
home. - Woodley Park in Van Nuys will not be available to us this year and
we are still looking for a new place - It is hard to find a place that will
let cars park on the lawn. We are talking about a much smaller and more
expensive event at an LA Automotive Museum but it will be a seriously
different type of event. We will keep you posted.
Once again, we thank you for your patients last year with all of the
problems that we had with our events. It was amazing that they all came up
at the same time. Palo Alto is back, better than ever, and Los Angeles is
still planned for mid-October SOMEPLACE. Hope to see you, and your British
car at an event soon.
