Atlanta Donut Derelicts News
Alert! The Donut Shop has moved to the other side of the flower shop in a beautiful new space. The new address is 3677 Chamblee Dunwoody Road. More parking, is available including a hundred plus spaces in the High School parking lot directly across the street.
We've been stopping by the Atlanta Donut Derelicts since the very first meet. 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!
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 cars at the LA "Donut Derelicts". I doubt if Jay will ever show-up in Atlanta, but you never know about car nuts!.
