In 1985 Candy and I moved to Houston from Oklahoma.  In 1986 we traveled to San Antonio for the national convention of the American MGB Association.  A young John Twist and his wife were very active in the organization at the time   The image below is from the fall 1986nissue of their publication The Octagon.  This was the first MG show we ever attended and we snagged a 3rd Place award in the Concours d'Elegance.  Our pewter plate is still somewhere in the house.  I noticed recently that the 2nd place winner was Ed Malmgren with his 1974 MGB.  Ed was the president of the Houston MG Car Club in 1982.  We did not join the club until 1992.
