Vintage Restorations Ltd.
February 17, 2018

Our 2018 tech schedule kicks off on February 17th with a session at Vintage Restorations Ltd. in Union Bridge, Maryland. Our host, John Tokar will reveal the mysteries, trials and tribulations of Lucas (the Prince of Darkness) electrical systems. John has been working and restoring British cars for over 40 years and is happy to share his experiences. He has also applied his skills to building scale steam locomotives and to the restoration of some full-size railroad motor cars (speeders).We want to get under way at 10 a.m. with some coffee and donuts and then conclude with lunch about 12:30 before heading home.

Vintage provides full service for this work with a specialty in British cars. John as an added feature will also hold a question and answer session on the Trends in Restoration where he will discuss the misconceptions and considerations one needs to consider when restoring an old car.

So, if you need some restoration work done this is a great opportunity to do some research and check out Vintage Restorations Ltd. as a possible provider for that work you've been putting off. For others, it may be an opportunity to pick up some tips and tricks from the pros. And, if you're any kind of train buff, there is an extra treat for you at Vintage Restorations - Mr. Tokar's steam powered rail creations.

The Buttersburg Inn in Union Bridge (walking distance if the weather is nice) will be our lunch destination. They can handle up to 25 in a private room for a home-style lunch beginning at 12:30 p.m.

Because Vintage Restorations is a little distance for many of our members, we are looking into the possibility of a caravan or two from selected meeting points. We will designate two met-up locations, one in Leesburg and the other in the Tysons Corner area. Plan to depart from those locations in the 8:15-8:30 AM time frame. Depending on the weather, some may not wish to drive their MG's and that's fine. So save the date and "stay tuned" for the final details.

Please let me know if you will be attending and whether you will be caravanning or meeting us at Vintage Restorations.
