The first Sunday C & C of 2020. After raining most of Saturday afternoon and evening, Sunday was mercifully dry, but cold and windy. Still, we had a pretty good turnout! Alan Olson again drove his Aston, and I drove my Elise. No other Lotus folks there today.

Alan Olson and I showed up in our Elises, and we had a couple of other British marques represented today.
Check out the license plate on Dino's Jeep!

It was wet and cold out, but that didn't keep the diehards from showing up. We seemed to have separate parking for the 2 wheel drive cars, and the all-wheel or 4 wheel drives today.

We had a good turnout today. A large part of Sunday turnouts has to do with following a bad-weather Saturday. It rained Saturday morning, so Katie's was pretty quiet yesterday.

Whatever the reason, we had a (relative) lot of people and cars. The Bobs - Scates and Collum - drove their Lotus. Other Lotus guys drove their alternate rides - Alan Olson in his DB9, and Ivan drove his 911.

This has developed into a really nice, small but mellow get-together. Always several nice cars, and the people are great! We meet at 8:00AM, and have a light breakfast at Cameron's, then go out and talk cars.

Another good turnout at Cameron's. Any time you have two special edition Vipers, it's not a bad get-together. We had two Lotus there today, and three Lotus owners; I was joined by Alan Olson in his DB9, and Bob Scates drove his Esprit.

Not only great cars, but great people. Attendees showed a young enthusiast their cars.

Wow - it's already March, 2020! A good turnout, led by our friend Paul's new acquisition - a '67 VW Beetle. We actually had two Beetles there today, as well as a Ford GT and a Ferrari Maranello. Plenty of nice vehicles to see...

As long as we keep having sunny weather, we will keep coming out to commune with fellow car people!

As it turns out, this event was a nice drive, and I saw a few friends while I was at the charity C & C at Two Silos in Manassas.
The first picture - 'what are the top two kitcar designs in the world?' Answer - 1.) Cobra 2.) Seven.
The second picture - Zakk's Elise.
The third picture - a nice Healey Bugeye.

Looks like they collected a good amount of money, at $20 per car in attendance, for St. Jude Children's Research Center.
