Taste of Britain - 2016
A member's newest addition!
I thought you'd like to know of the latest addition to the fleet. After meeting Charlie Baldwin and Cor Engelen at the Airport show, I expressed an interest in having a TD or TF with Volvo power also. Charlie found me one, and he and Cor both went with me to Virginia on Saturday to pick it up. It's a project, but in good shape overall and with some apparent historic provenance.
I keep a blog of my workshop exploits, and last night I did an extensive post about the car and the process to get it back to Lancaster. Charlie suggested I send it to you. Here it is - feel free to share with other interested parties.
Best, Emery DeWitt
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).
"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.
