MBCA Washington Section Picnic

Our picnic and concours today was a blast. It was the first one for me. There were some fantastic cars and really nice people there.

There were two fabuous 300SLs, a roadster and a gullwing coupe! Woohoo!


There were bargains galore at Johnhef's Tire Tent . . . .

Unfortunately i had a conflict and could not make it - but it sure was a beautiful day to have the picnic. I have been to several previously and they have ALL been great. Looks like this one was too! Thanks to the local club for making the arrangements and thanks to Dee8go for the photos.
