Mugs & Motors November 2012 Edition

Cream and Sugar Coffee Shop
The South Alabama British Car Club invaded the normally-quiet Cream and Sugar coffee house in the Oakleigh Garden District of downtown Mobile today where we literally took over the upstairs loft section for another Mugs & Motors - Coffee and Conversation for Motoring Enthusiasts. Around twenty SABCC'ers met for nothing more than a cup of coffee, some sweet treats and the pleasure of each others company.

In Deep Conversation
The day dawned a bit on the cool side with morning temps moving into the lower forty-degree range. Those driving their British cars were greeted with a brilliant cloudless blue sky, making for a perfect day when an extra layer of clothing was added to keep the chill away. Four of us arrived driving our British cars and they drew a bit of a crowd when the local bicycle club arrived for their own event.

The Jarvises and the Pughs Chatting
Keith and Donna Jarvis brought their Triumph Herald convertible which had been treated to a recent respray. It still needed its interior re-installed, but it was the center of attention in the Cream and Sugar parking lot. 

A Couple of the Brits in the Car Park
A number of members brought along "show and tell" items to share with the gang. Club past president Noel Eagleson brought some autojumble finds from his recent trip to Virginia, while your humble blogger brought a few British car-related books purchased from various re-sale shops in the Mobile area.

A number of ideas were put forth for activities for club the coming year including a drive and float tour around and across Mobile Bay and a polar bear run in January for convertible owners. A lot of ideas for the next activities chairman to consider, for sure.

Mugs and Motors continues to be one of the special events the club enjoys and we will be certain to keep them on the calendar for the future.
