Three of those red MGA's looked vaguely familiar. You know, I've never been a fan of white cars but Rand's MK2 is such a great looking car, especially with those white spoke wheels.

Love the photos and the writing Coyote!

Good Afternoon... How have you been? We met at El Cajon Wed. Night Car Show in Sept. I think. We chatted for about 10 min. I think you were sitting in a 104. I was the tall guy with the Temecula "QUAID" Harley-Davidson long sleeve Tshirt on. Anyway, you gave me one of your cards and told me if I ever logged onto your website, to be sure and sign your "Guest Book". Well, I was on the San Diego MG Club website's "Links" page, noticed your name there and thought I should log on and sign your book. I don't know whatever happened to your card though. I'll close now. Just thought I'd say HI!. Take care and MERRY CHRISTMAS.... Jeff Miller...

Thanks for the inspiration to the new windscreen for my MGA. I am still not ready with it, but got som other things done on my car mean while. It is now fitted with an Eaton Kompressor, disc brakes in front and a 5-shift gearbox and runs like a dream! I have never heard of the gearbox conversion until I talked with you over the mail, and bought a kit from Angloparts in Belgium. I'll keep you informed of what happens to the car!

The 18th Annual British Car Show, sponsored by the Central Coast British Car Club was held Sunday, July 27th, 2008, from 9:00 to 3:00 at the Channel Islands Harbor in Oxnard, Ca. We had a beautiful day with cloud cover early and clearing before noon with temperatures in the 70 degree range. There was a wide variety of British car models on display totaling 145. The Austin Healey was the featured Marque, celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Austin Healey Sprite. Rolls Royce was well represented, besides the Austin Healey's. Frazer Nash, Morris Minors, Mini's, race cars, Jaguars, MG's, Triumphs, Jensen's, Aston Martin's, an original AC Cobra, Sumbeam Tigers, Lotus, modifieds, Morgans, Bentleys were all displayed on the grass with a background of the yacht harbor. We had music, food vendors, Bagpipe band with Scottish Dancers, and various automotive related vendors. A good time was had by everyone with stories of finding a rare car that had been locked away for 15 or 20 years, and restoration nightmares discovering extensive rust. Many good remarks concerning the show venue and orginization. By all standards it was a very successful show.

It was a pleasure meeting and talking with you at Conclave 2008 in San Diego. That was quite an event and the appearance of Gerry Coker and his kindness to us Healey Enthusiasts was so much more than we anticipated. I am now going to peruse more of you website, which by the way is quite impressive.

Very nice website, and a great two-car collection! And those are two obviously much-enjoyed cars, too. Congratulations on the many successful long drives in them, and the many more ahead. I hope to tour with you someday.

See you in San Diego at Conclave in 2008!

It was a genuine treat, meeting you today, and another to wander through your Web site. Some of the BN-1 and -2 stuff flashed me back to the adolescent "crush" I had on them, and the harsh reality of the '55 I eventually acquired: no heater, no boot closure, no top ... Nevertheless, it was one of the cars I enjoyed most, and of which I remain fond. Maybe fondest.

Any road, thanks for your efforts in making and maintaining a haven for those of us wise enough (and old enough) to value the true "sport" and spirit of sports cars.

Great web site from a guy with similar interests. Carry on my good friend!

Wednesday, June 6th 2007 - 08:13:03 AM

What memories these photos bring back,
Although it was many years later, the pictures triggered memories of racing my MG TD at the old Edenvale course west of Barrie, Ontario.

My father loved automobiles and I first heard of Barney Oldfield from him.

Thanks for sending this, David. I'll send it on to Ross in Picton Ontario.

G'day Derek

Thanks for taking me to your website as I enjoyed it. One question comes from it.

What have you done to your fuel system? I have had a couple of problems with aftermarket fuel filter. The one I had just wouldn't let enough fuel through.

Best wishes

Greetings from Devon in England. Your car looks very nice. I have a red over Old English white, MkII BT7. I put a 3:54 differential in mine too. I looked at the Lempert option, but shipping to UK...? I took my time until I lucked onto one from an Austin Wetminster automatic. Good as new. And a 28% overdrive. Spin on oil filter too. 3 HD6s in place of 3 HS4s...easier to work on, more power and less fuel. Latter ones were rebuilt, former were nbg at all! Denis Welch cam....good stuff from DW, but pricey!

Autumn rains at the in garage, but it does come out on salt free winter days.

Look at

That's our local club.

Enjoyed your site.

I can never get enough of looking at these lovely cars.

By the way - my 1972 Benz is finally back home after winter storage at a place called Auto Vault. I recommend them highly. It's run by a chap named Gary Shapiro. The beautiful lold Benz came back to me looking like a million dollars. My wife and I took it for short spin and filled the tank, $57 dollars of hi-test.

Now to have the AC restored again.

What a wonderfu website and what wonderful cars, especially the BN1! The most enjoyable car I ever owned was a BN2, built in 1956, and purchased new. It was one of a handful of the last 100's imported to Canada, and had a close-ratio, four speed transmission with electric overdrive on third and fourth, thus, in fact, six speeds.

Of course Lucas, Prince of Darkness, made the lights.

Thank you for wonderful memories!

Wednesday, March 8th 2006 - 09:49:55 AM

Well, what a good looking stable of cars you have. The "A" brings back fond memories of my own "A" that I had in college.

Thanks for the experience!.
