Old Iron Works

It was another hot Saturday event, in every respect.  Events Coordinator Mike Woodward put this “once again” event together and attracted about 40 participants.  With an early start for some, at The Eats for breakfast, the 50 miles to and from Houston was a little uncomfortable in the open MG.  But the Old Iron Works was delightful with its many very distracting Classic autos to enjoy in their various states of Pebble Beach quality restoration.  The 1931 Stutz  “Durham” was likely the rarest we saw.  The Blaze convertible in the photos above is one of only two known to exist today.

Our lunch at the Cozy Grape was super as well, with a fanned and misted private Porch.

MG EX186

Dan Asbury provided this 20 minute audio tape (with permission) for inclusion on our website.  Mr. Gunderson talked about his very rare MG EX186 as seen at the MG2016  show in Louisville in June 2016.

(You may notice that the “missing” Emma G is being held by Gunderson.  She is a scamp.)
