Knock, knock

Our long-time Member Warner Banes wrote a great article that was published in the Sept. 2001 ROARS.  The truth deserves repeating.

Breakfast at EATS

eats1Food and MGs are synonymous.

On Saturday morning early, 12 members made the trip to EATS on Hempstead.  There was nothing important left undiscussed.  And no one left hungry.

Driving their MGs were:

John & Nancy Youens, 1947 MGTC

Greg Fleischer, 1971 MGB

Bob Chalker, 1972 MGB

Gordon Bard, 1973 MGB

Ray Holtzapple, 1974 MGBGT V8

(and it was a Drivers Award mileage Event!)

Arriving in other vehicles were: Gordon and Fran Smith and Velma, Dave Renner, Harvey Rutstein, and Dwight Dawson.

Who will sponsor the next  such  event in their neighborhood?

12 Hours…

Okay, does anyone else have this problem?  Every time I disassemble the TC to do a repair / modification I always finish the re-assembly 12 hours or less before the next MG event.  All of my work turns out to be a “Pit Stop” with the clock ticking down.  Not to mention the one or two day air shipment of parts.  This time it was to combat the hot weather vapor lock problem.  I installed a heat shield, TF intake spacers, and tweaked the carburetor adjustments.  The actual list of what I did would take much longer and include NSFW vocabulary. :-)  Fortunately, the end result is almost invisible.  Can you spot the stainless steel heat shield in the photo below?
