So that Austin Healey Association members could attend the Planes of Fame event at the Chino Airport on November 5, we moved our regular first Saturday of the month breakfast gathering to the second Saturday of the month, November 12.
At first, it looked like attendance would be very sparse, but eventually nine hardy souls showed up to talk cars and eat breakfast.
The morning was bright and sunny, albeit a tad chilly. The most unusual car among the group was Tom Yeager's 1928 Whippet. Seems Tom came across the car at a car show and before he knew it he was the new owner. The former owner was desperate to sell the little beauty as he was soon headed to new digs in Idaho and the car had to go. To say the least, the $10,000 Tom paid for the car was the bargain of the century.
We had a little excitement this morning, as John Meza noticed a column of smoke emanating from a field in the distance. He dialed 911 to report the fire and before too long, fire trucks were speeding to the site.
For those who have never been to one of our breakfasts, please consider making the trip to Farmer Boys on Alessandro Boulevard in Riverside. You'll have a good time, guaranteed. Attached are some photos of the gathering. As I am a rank amateur at this, I forgot to take a photo of the group at breakfast.
Driving classics to the event were: Tom Yeager - 1928 Whippet, Randy Clary - 1973 Jensen Healey, Jim Cregg - 1971 Corvette, Larry Reynolds - 1964 Morgan Plus 4, and Bill Wilkman – 1990 Mazda Miata.
Those with future classics were: Allan and Tina Perry - 2013 Infinity G37, Jimmie Davis - 2004 Mercury Marquis, John Meza - 2020 Toyota Tacoma, and Bob Saber - 2021 Jaguar F Type R.
