The Search for LBCs…

…continues this week from the Alabama Gulf Coast, where rebuild and recovery operations continue post-Hurricane Sally. Lots of piles of debris everywhere, lots of disaster cleanup specialists working and a lot of buildings that received damage.

Regret to say, in the week we’ve been down here, I haven’t seen one LBC, save for a couple of modern Jags and one XJ/Vanden Plas saloon/sedan. I did stumble across this Kelmark yesterday, on US 98 east of Foley, AL. If you can work with fiberglass, the body’s in pretty good shape and probably just needs minor work and a new coat of paint. You’d have to source a replacement VW beetle chassis with engine and trans, though….the car’s minus its engine and the chassis looked pretty far gone.

Couple more days, maybe I’ll stumble across a proper British sports car…
