The Atlanta Donut Derelicts. The meet is believed to be the longest continuous running AM car meet in the Atlanta area! It is held every Saturday from 8:30 AM to 11:00 AM. No official meeting on rain days but you'll still find some of the gang hanging out inside the donut shop! "this is a group of 'folks that love cars-coffee-donuts' no matter what.... versus a show. They will show rain or shine (and in ugly weather they bring the plan-b car). Probably one of the most dedicated group that just flat-out enjoy cars."
The Atlanta Donut Derelicts was started in November of 2000 by some Atlanta car enthusiasts that thought it would be neat to have a morning car event. There is no agenda, no one is in charge, it's not a car club, no membership, no fees, just talk cars, eat donuts and show your latest creation.
The Atlanta meet is loosely modeled after the Southern California car guys (and gals) that meet every Saturday am in Huntington Beach (called the "Donut Derelicts") to hang out with their cars and scoff down a few Donuts. Jay Leno occasionally shows up with one of his latest cars at the LA "Donut Derelicts". Check out the LA "Donut Derelicts" I doubt if Jay will ever show-up in Atlanta, but you never know about car nuts!.
