British Invasion, Year Two – a Longhorn Barbecue

[DISCLAIMER: No longhorns were barbecued.]

Last Sunday, I spent my second year in a row as a judge at the Texas All British Car Days car show. Yes, all attorneys like to play judge for a day. But, as cool as my newfound (and temporary) author-i-tie was, the best part was getting to see all the cars. And the barbecue the night before, which featured longhorns. Here is some documentary evidence.

This is all relevant because horses are the oldest of historic cars.

The longhorns are less relevant, but they’re cool as hell.
