UK Car Show-Your attendance requested!

Good Morning one and all,

I hope this email finds you all well - I am ready for the warmer weather thats for sure!  These nice days have been such a tease - I can’t believe we are in the 30’s again 🤦‍♀️.  Anyway I have been asked to forward the below email.  This email is from a former member of the DVT who now lives in Ireland.  Check it out and if you can join virtually I know he would love to “see” you!

Stay safe and Safety Fast,

Kristi

Hi fellow MG Enthusiast, 

You may remember me from the 2010 MG National Meet in Valley Forge conducting a Tech Session - UK Motoring History Tour Planning Guide, and as a local member of Delaware Valley Triumphs who's first British car was a 71 MGB.  Today, I'm reporting live, from Dublin Ireland where I now live, about an upcoming UK Classic Car show that you too can attend, for free, and without having to fly overnight to London, take a bus to Birmingham, Covid sequester in a hotel for 2 weeks at your own expense, and pay your $30 entrance fee.  Importantly, you won't have to then walk your dogs to the bone in the five giant halls of the National Exhibition Center (NEC), as I have done almost annually for the past 22 years.

This year, the Practical Classics Classic Cars and Restoration Show, one of which I have never attended but heard many positive things about, is online and free to attend.  Practical Classics is a fantastic magazine if you like to restore, upgrade, or just to maintain your cars; look for opportunities to read it.  Danny Hopkins is a brilliant Editor and Commentator, you will enjoy his Hosting.  I did watch the Lancaster Insurance NEC Classic Motor Show in November online, and while it only gave you a taste of the experience, you do have a proper sense of the things you can experience when attending one of these NEC Car Shows in England.  The NEC Show online had that sense of home video, podcast, and TV show combined.  Obviously there is some 'commercialization' behind each video, but let's face it, most of these show exhibitors hope to make a little money.  The Car Clubs that exhibit have a different objective, connecting with members, provide visitors with a sense of Marque Appreciation, and to find future members.  It's a little tough to Autojumble online, but, finding products and services you need but couldn't find is definitely possible.

Importantly, and this is why I was late for a recent Philly Zoom meeting, we don't change our clocks over here until the 28th, therefore we are only 4 hours ahead of NJ, not the usual 5. 

So if Saturday, March 27th has some open time in your busy life, subtract 4 from the hour on the schedule, and that is your time to login and connect.  If I remember correctly, you may even be able to timeshift viewing the episodes.

Suggestion: If you can, make sure you attend this one (11:15am Philly Time), for a purer sense of what it is like to attend this show in person in the non-Covid era.

If original you should have S.U. H2 carbs, and if it’s still there the aluminum tag on the float bowl should say AUD266.

Cheers,
Kevin

Re: Numbers Matching Project: 1964 Sunbeam Tiger – Barn Finds

Kevin McLemore
 

Yeah, this car has been the subject of some major discussion over on the Sunbeam Alpine Owners Club of America forum. There’s so much missing and that would need replacement with Alpine parts that I think you wouldn’t really be able to call it a Tiger again. I loved my Tiger, though.

Kevin

I’m willing to help with a tech session on tuning if someone wants to host it on a warm-ish day. Are we talking Strombergs, Weber or S.U.s? 

Cheers,
Kevin

Is there a time coming up when I could bother club members for some tips on tuning my '68 Midget? I had a shop work on it and it's running worse than ever.

I realize that there was a meeting this morning. :(

See you guys tomorrow (Saturday) at 9:00 am. Looks like it will be cold but clear and sunny!


MGA Rear Axle

Kevin McLemore
 

Hi, folks -

I have a bud in Illinois who is selling me some bits for my MGTD and he also has a complete MGA 4.3 rear end in his shop (less drums and brake internals) that he wants to sell. I can bring it back when I go out there to pick up my own goodies. Price is $150. Ping me before April 16 if you want it, because that’s when I’m headed out there. He likely has a bunch of other MG stuff, too, so if you have any specific requests I can pass them on.

Cheers,
Kevin

Club Members,
The road trips for Delaware and NJ sound good ; the PA one is out west and would require at least one overnight.

Monday Evening, 8 March 2021, from Grand Rapids MichiGan
MG Zoom Session
Monday 8 March 2021
7:00 pm Eastern for Two Hours
All MG Enthusiasts welcome
Join hundreds of MG enthusiasts for another MG Technical Zoom Session. These sessions usually last about two and a half hours. Enthusiasts have logged in from Japan, New Zealand, Australia, England, Netherlands, Columbia, Mexico, Canada, and all over the US. They pose questions, comment in the "Chat" section, and enjoy the banter among the participants. Last session drew over 250 MG enthusiasts!

This session's introduction will briefly cover braking systems. 

The rear hatch on my daughter's 1973 MGB/GT has a motif with MG cast into the metal and "BGT" silkscreened into a relief. The BGT had worn away. I could have purchased a new motif for about $80 but took another route altogether. My daughter's initials are BRT --- so I went with that. I engaged a local woman to print a label. She can do this for you, too, with whichever letters you choose. Find her website at: https://www.decemberlily.com/mg

Last session we hosted Burt Levy as our special guest. Visit his website to order your copy of "The Last Open Road." http://www.lastopenroad.com/
