We enjoyed that show, even though we were in the 300ZX. We especially enjoyed being one of the first groups able to tour the Simeone Museum and meeting Dr.Fred in person.

That was a fun MG show. And yes--the Simeon Museum was awesome. 🙂

I just cooked and ate a pizza and you said "carbs" and I got momentarily confused... 😉

Those are beautiful!

Pretty very Pretty.

Joe is The Man.

Absolutely. But I didn't know Joe was detailing them now. If so, I've got another pair coming up for him. He's already done one pair for me.

Joe's been doing SUs for eons. He is the best that ever was!

What do you mean was?

Vague memory here; but I think I recall that Joe was not offering detailing when he rebuilt my HIFs. He was way backed up at the time. Could it be that he had temporarily discontinued detailing just until he was able to catch up? Or did I just misunderstand something? I sure like the work that he did! Joe is THE man.

Oh boy! This is why it's funny that I get these posts instead of Steve. Pretty cars, pretty locations, yes! Carbs....I don't know. Not like new diamond earrings. 🙂

They look great! Could you please provide contact info. for Joe.

Cool MG .

If you’d like to join them the details of their plans are provided below and additional updates will be made as the plans get more firm and or finalized. If you would like more information about joining the Coast-to-Coast Adventure for all or part of it, please contact either Dick Lunney (704) 578-4616 or PJ Lenihan pjlenihan@me.com or (336) 462-1147.

2017 MG Cost-to_coast Adventure – Details
Last updated: 17-Feb-2017

Put a tire in the Atlantic and a tire in Pacific at the beginning and end of a historic MG road trip of 8 days taking us across the southern United States to NAMGBR’s MG2017 Annual Convention. Our tentative plans include using a southern route of secondary roads and some high speed interstates. Of course MG fans across the nation can join in anywhere. This plan has a couple of short days for touring local sights. These short days also allow for “catch up” if anyone was delayed for unscheduled repairs. Our model is the Rally to Reno in 2011 but with a more southern/southwestern flair.

Tire Tip East Coast -Starting Point – Savannah, GA – Friday 6-16-2017

Before we start we meet-up near Savannah,GA. You may wish to arrive on Thursday 6-15-2017 to have time for some sightseeing, but definitely be there by lunch time on Friday 6-16-2017 for a tire in the water event on Tybee Island about 30 minutes east of our host hotel.

The City of Savannah is a place with so much history, it is too much to list. This city was spared by General Grant at the end of the Civil War, during his famous “March to the Sea,” so the beautiful antebellum homes fill the streets just as they did in the late 1800’s. In addition, the Eighth Air Force Museum, probably the best air museum outside of Wright Patterson AFB or the Smithsonian Air Museum, chronicles the U.S. Air Force’s role in defeating Nazi Germany during WWII. Finally, just outside Savannah is the renowned Roebling Road Raceway, a 2.2 mile winding and challenging course where we might start our journey west with some laps on this track.

Each evening from mid-April to late October, visitors gather at the Bat Flight Amphitheater to learn all about the fascinating bat species that live inside the cavern from a park ranger before watching thousands of them fly out of the cavern in search of insects to eat. It is a memorable experience that should not be missed.

Historic El Paso Mission Trail is located in El Paso’s Lower Valley. This Trail is rich in history dating back 400 years. Sure to take your breath away these three adobe churches remain as living testaments to the faith of our Spanish and Indian ancestors. Established in 1682 the Ysleta Mission is the cornerstone of the Ysleta del Sur Indian Pueblo. Two miles east lies the Socorro Mission. The architecture of this mission reflects the culture, politics and insurmountable spirit of the early settlers of this vibrant town. Established in 1789 the San Elizario Chapel is an amazing paragon of late adobe church architecture in West Texas and New Mexico. It is an exquisite reflection of European architectural styles on the earlier, simpler box-like missions of the region.

Does a mgc hood fit an mgb ? I want to say yes but i also dont like to assume?

During the trip, we also stopped at the Corn Palace in Mitchell, SD...drove through The Badlands....stopped at Wall Drug...had lunch in Sturgis, SD where they were getting ready for the yearly Harley Davidson invasion, visited Mount Rushmore (where we changed out a fuel pump under the watchful eye of a Park Ranger)...stopped at the site of "Custer's Last Stand" near Little Big Horn...overnighted in Coure d'Alene, ID and enjoyed Fourth of July Fireworks...made a pitstop at SeaTac Arrivals to pick up my wife..On the way home be stopped by Victoria British and bought some spares.......it was a GREAT experience. The meet was pretty good, too.

I made almost an identical journey to MG2005 with Jai Deagan...only added a visit to the Crazy Horse Memorial and saw fireworks in Couer d'Alene. The road trip back was also full of adventure. Jai and I "geo-cached" out and back that year in his 1975 MGB.

that just ain't right...

Well, that TD will never be saved!

Well put!

Now that's a TD that someone under 60 might be interested in!!! wonder if this qualifies for "saving the breed"?

It qualifies as totally destroying a great car!

Why?

Awesome!

Ahhhhhh NO.

Spurious. I like it.

Looks like a wild ride .

Sacrelidge

The saving grace is that it looks like a kit. The fuel tank is at the wrong angle, the windshield frame is wrong, the lights are wrong...

I can live with that.

To each is own , anyone who can build a ride like that is a credit to the custom car hobby

I've had people Criticize my B Chevy conversion hi performance Roadster which I built myself; my reply is I didn't build it to please anyone else but me; and dam it brings a smile to my face especially when the throttle is wide open

I think this sounds like , a good time , and fun with a car , good for you .

Octagonal thoughts to you Bob!

That's a cool mirror, but I think you should probably leave it where it is.

How long are you in town for? The Classic MG Club of Orlando has a dinner/meeting tomorrow night.

Yup.

What mirror? 😉

Nice...

You really should complete it by adding the letters with a bar of soap! 🙂

Maybe.... but you could ask them where they bought it.

Another lovely guy although I believe he has been unwell for some time.

Brian was our featured guest at NAMGBR's MG '98 convention in Hagerstown, MD. He had great stories of his days in the Comps Department at Abingdon which he shared in person as well as in his books. He's pictured here (in the center) with Ken Smith and Ian Pender.

Nice car looks great thx for sharing

nice paint. black is tough and your body man did it right!

I love the stance on your B. What did you do to lower the car? My B sits much higher and would love to lower it.

The Dragon!

While attending MG-2006

I agree!

Pete Mantell (white B) and me (red C) on the Dragon - 2006

Been There...Done That!!! It was GREAT!!!! 🙂

What and where is the Dragon?

When is the next big group of MGs going? I'd love to go again.

There is an all-British show in Townsend each spring in May.

Been there and done that also numerous times, but it's really getting way to crowded and overly populated with true crazies. My last trip in Sept '16 got aborted 1 mile into the Dragon because 2 rice rockets heading in opposite directions hit head on resulting in two fatalities, thus closing the road for +3 hours. If you have done so take a look at The Snake in TN, It's Hwy 421 between Mountain City, Tn and Bristol, Tn. 33 miles and 489 curves, but not near as crowded.

I would love to take my Baby to the Dragon, or down Route 66.

We will drive this road and others similar in June at BritishV8. This is US 60. It should have a catchy nickname....

Sweet .

We live 40 minutes away. In June it is so busy and the police are out. For the most fun do it off season!!
