working on kind of a "3 Ring Circus" for the session. We'll have a
segment on sealing the roadster windscreen, something about the engine,
and in the center ring, MG electricals. Randy will be on hand with his
garage and experience. Another of our own, Scott Stubblefield, loves to

Weather permitting get that MG out and drive to the
Shuck's. Let's talk about your car and see where you are on the journey.

I look forward to seeing you and your little Brit on
April 15th at the Shucks. See address and directions below.
