      Eric, you cann’t do it all, I’ll post this for you (hope you don’t mind an extra hand). Unfortunately those date will not work for me, but I hope for many others, when spring is here!
      Happy New Years everyone! Circle the date on your calendar and make plans to attend the 2013 Invasion in Columbia, South Carolina. For a second year in a row the Sunbeams will be "invading" a local British car show as well as the Scottish Games. There will be plenty to see and do during the weekend-stay tuned for updates and start working on your Sunbeam so it is ready to go!

      Invasion XIII – Has been set. The details are being made! Eric Gibeaut and I are already setting the agenda for the weekend and we have the dates. The next Invasion will be April 4th – April 7th of 2013. We will have a large parts room / hospitality room so start gathering your parts up. One question I want throw out to the members is: What would you like to see as a tech session? We have a couple of time slots already marked for tech sessions and may have up to three. I am going to try to have something special for all those Sunbeam owners that make the effort and bring more than one Sunbeam! So, if you have a project you are working on, you have only 6 months till the next Invasion so get busy! Details will start flowing over the next couple of weeks. The goal is to have 50 cars this year!!! We will be invading an all British car show called Carolina British Classics and it is tied in with a Scottish Games Fesitval. It will be more than you can do and see in one day! The link for the Scottish Games is:!

      Watch for details and post what you would like to see a tech sessions!!! See ya in a few months!

      What a great event! We had over 30 Sunbeams make it to the British car show last Saturday and half of them were owned by TE/AE members. The Sharkeys drove their V-6 Alpine from their new VA home to the Invasion and took a first place trophy home with them. It was a sunny 75 degrees on show day and Sunbeams made up almost a third of all the British cars present at the show. Thanks to everyone who attended-and they drove their Sunbeams from as far as Canada, Delaware, Florida, and all states between. A great slide show of all the cars at the show can be found at
      Scroll to the bottom of the page there and you will see it. See if you can find the black Jaguar with the Sunbeam logos and PA plates- you can also see it at the BASH next month. Eric

      See if you can find the black Jaguar with the Sunbeam logos and PA plates-

      Sounds like the "BLWN JAG" of TT & Joanne.
