Cruise Night '99

August 20th: We won, we won, we won!
SBCC won the club participation award at the last cruise night of the century, plus Tom McAndrew got the "Penny's Choice" award for his hot rod MG B. Twenty three members cars turned out to make it happen. Great weather, huge crowd, lots of interest in our cars and club.


Take a look at the lineup and awards here:

Bradwell Run

August 7th: Following a request for participation from organizers of the Bradwell show and shine, five of our members cruised out. Nice drive, fine day and a good event.

Finally got some Triumphs to the foreground: Bob Seaborn's TR6, John Butler's GT 6+, Alan Wilson's TR6, Dirk deBoer's MG B and Ray Grant's MG B


Super Run 99

July 30 - August 1:SBCC was represented by 15 cars at the big meet (close to 1000 cars). We circled the wagons behind our new stanchions (thanks Ernie) to keep from getting lost in the sea of big iron. Not to worry as lots of people found us - enough that Morris picked up a people's choice award for his MG A (couldn't fit the Chev 350 that came as a prize into it's trunk though - see pix).

Lot's more Super Run Pictures here


Initial Tech Clinics a Success

No more excuses for not keeping your pride & joy in tune! Our first two technical clinics on ignition systems (sorry, no Lucas jokes here) and carbs (both Strombergs & SUs) were excellently presented by Bob Forward.

You'll get ten times more information seeing it done live than you can ever glean from a book. If you want to learn how to do it right, come on out to the next clinic.
