Fire Extinguisher Purchase Program
More and more often, car shows are requiring that those that enter their cars in the show must have a fire extinguisher with their car. This is not just the sponsoring organization flexing their muscles a bit, but an way to address the valid concern that your car, and those nearby, could possibly end up as a charred carcass of its former self. But why should that just apply at a show? If you work on your car yourself, don't you have a fire extinguisher nearby in your shop? No? Then you must enjoy playing Russian Roulette with a .45 Colt with one bullett loaded in the six-shooter's cylinder. LANCO MG wants to help its members rectify this unsafe situation. Go to www.ebay.com and search for "Halotron 2.5lb Fire Extinguisher". Purchase the 2.5 pound Amerex Halotron extinguisher and print a copy of your payment receipt. Turn that in to the Club and receive $20 back from LANCO. Note that this is a halotron extinguisher which will not cause a mess when putting out a fire like dry chemical units would - if you ever have to use it. We hope you don't. Many e-Bay sellers list these for $99.95 Eighty bucks ($99 purchase less $20 "rebate" from LANCO) is a small price to pay, considering the alternative of a roasted, toasted MG (or other British vehicle of your choosing).
"Coffee, Cars, & Conversation"
In April we will restart our informal gathering of cars and owners to meet, B.S., and solve the world's problems. This is held the first Saturday of each month through October starting at 9:00 a.m. at the "Turkey Hill Experience" lot in Columbia (301 Linden Street- the Columbia PA route 441 exit of US 30). On some occasions a short drive may take place after the b.s.ing. Members of other like-minded clubs are invited to attend. New friendships are formed and even one MG seller was connected to an MG buyer. Unfortunately no solutions have been found to date for the dysfunctions routinely occurring in Washington D.C. Come out and join the group - the lawn mowing can wait for another day..........
And, to chase the winter "blahs" we will also meet in January, February, and March at the Columbia Burger King. Same schedule as above (first Saturday of the month, at 9:00 a.m.) and the Burger King is right in front of the "Turkey Hill Experience.
"The History of M.G."
Here's links to a three-part "History of MG" that be can be found at various sites on the Internet. These have been posted to YouTube. Each segment is about 8-1/2 minutes long.
