So they are calling for yet ANOTHER major (by mid-Atlantic standards) snow storm tomorrow night and Thursday. Driving season seems like months away. Trying to keep my sanity by listing up some British Car events in the Mid Atlantic this year. These are pretty much shine, park and walk around events. But you see some really amazing cars. Note that the Lewes Delaware show does not allow cars manufactured after 2000. It's a space issue.

Hang in there
Thanks for the mention of our Get Your Lotus Out (GYLO) event. I'm also getting bored of the unusually bad weather. (I just heard that, in addition to the excessive snow, South Carolina had a 4.1 earthquake yesterday!)

It helps to look forward to the good weather, and British car show season!

I'm hoping to have a few surprises at my two May events -

Our 7th GYLO on May 25th, for Lotus cars, the last Sunday in May. These keep getting bigger, and they are definitely fun get-togethers!

Our third 'A Pride of Jaguars' event, for any Jaguar cars, on May 4th, the first Sunday in May.

Both events to be held at East Market at Fair Lakes, the Kohl's/Dick's Sporting Goods shopping center.

Some pictures from events last year:
