Just over a week away!

We should all meet up at some point, maybe Friday night at the cocktail hour.

I'll be there. Without the Elan, alas, but there nonetheless. See you then!

Had a great time at LOG, got to meet Steve Lyle and Gordon Sauer, both great chaps! Yelotus made the trip with no troubles although I suffered a bit with the heat- the sun beat down mercilessly and I was dripping sweat all weekend, but it was worth it.

Here are a bunch of pictures:

Somewhere in northern Georgia- a British car poses with the largest toothbrush I've ever seen. There's gotta be a joke in there somewhere!

We've arrived safely at the hotel. That's Greg Z's Elan. Yelotus is currently equipped with the 5-speed 'box that used to be in that car, and with a big aluminium radiator I bought from the owner of the Series IV Seven a couple of spaces over from Greg's car.
Image

This was the first time in over six years that Yelotus slept outdoors. The car looks pretty good at night!

The next day on the concours field, this Europa was clearly the best colour:

Ross Robbins' most excellent Elan that has traveled all over:

I'm not sure who brought these two cars- anybody from this forum?

A stunningly gorgeous Elite:

I'll bet this Mark VI can tell some stories:

Yelotus made friends with Gordon Sauer's beautiful Plus 2:

Here's a better look at Gordon's car:

Wait a minute, I’ve seen that VI in Thousand Oaks, CA. Quickly stopped to take a pic…
