  • Polar Bear Run, Dec. 27

    On Saturday, Dec. 27, the local Triumph club will hold the annual Polar Bear Run. You can find a link at www.gatriumph.com. This is open to anyone with an interesting car, and I'm sure more than a few will be there. The Miata's are welcome to join in, but will probably be asked to run in the back as "support" vehicles. Unlike the infamous "no picnic baskets" runs this will be rather sedate, with photo ops at the covered bridge stops planned for this run. But you can always find fun slaloming around the parts that fall off the old british cars. The drivers meeting will be at 9am, held in the Outback parking lot at the end of Stone Mountain Freeway. We will go from there through a bunch of interesting country roads, through some covered bridges, and end up in Athens for lunch. I will be driving my Mini (assuming it will start) and I'm offering up the X1/9 to a qualified driver. There are usually quite a few interesting cars to see, so come on out. Hope to see some of y'all there.

      I wouldn't mind driving the X1/9 for you. Don't worry, I don't drive like a dumbass and will treat the car with respect. ;)

        I wanted to go to this, but knew the Miata would not be running in time. :(

          We are planning to bring both cars to this run.

          After all those years watching parts falling off my Brit cars in my reaview mirror it should be fun to see em hit the road in front of me .

            I would love to drive the Fiat. That was the car I really wanted in high school but my dad being a WWII vet would let me have no part of any "ferrin" cars.

            If I wasn't out of town I would love to do it.

              If the weather is decent I will probably do this. Sounds like a good time.

                  Well..............I offered the X on this thread too late. I hope y'all will forgive me. A couple of weeks ago at a meeting of the old fart Miata owners I offered the drive to one of the guys, who had driven one in the foggy distant past. I remembered this after I made the post. So I called him today, and he wants to drive it. So I am obliged to him first. He sounded a little excited, I'm sure he'll have fun. It's for sale so it will be good for the general public, and other enthusiast to see it out and about. I would drive it, but for this event I want to drive the Mini. And NO ONE drives the Mini but me. Well, ok, I might let Alec drive it for short distances. He is getting his own soon, so he can have fun with it. Too bad it won't be across the pond 'til February.

                          Having seen the said X19 in this thread...I must say, its mighty clean. Usually when or if I see one of those its total turd bucket rusting in the weeds, or barely running. Very cool to have a well preserved example of an unusual little car. Hopefully after the run there will be some pics for all to enjoy....including other cool rides as well.
