Clouds Cancel Crawl

This Shot was Taken at 8:00AM
The members of south Alabama British Car Club were certainly looking forward to a morning of trolling the two local "U-Pull-It" scrapyards in Mobile, but alas, the late winter rainy season put paid to the plans. 

Did You Know That it's All You Can Eat?
We did, however have two (count 'em, two) group meals planned for the day so we decided to avail ourselves of an extended Mugs & Motors session at one of the local "trough-style" eateries. All told, around 25 intrepid SABCC'ers dropped in to the the Golden Corral restaurant in Tillman's Corner, Alabama for an all-you-can-eat extravaganza that was to steel us for a day of scrapping. Instead, we filled our plates and sat down for a long chat about British cars and the miserable state of the weather. 

Hey - It's All You Can Eat!
All told, we spent about an hour and a half occupying some prime table space where we caught up on everyone's news. For example, Keith Jarvis brought his newly-acquired 1971 MGB GT. This very honest car is certainly a survivor and Keith is just the guy to take care of it. Jeff Herndon brought in his laptop computer to show off the progress he's made on his 1969 Jaguar E-Type roadster restoration project. This Mississippi Katrina victim is well on its way to being road (and drool) worthy.

As there was no chance of the rain breaking up anytime soon, we reluctantly departed with a promise that we would certainly reschedule the event.
