We're right in the middle of summer. I hope you all have had a chance to get out and about in your MGs to enjoy the warm weather. I had a good time on the Countryside Tour, and was even able to keep the top down for most of the journey. I also got to spend a little time at British Car Day at The Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix. The weather for the weekend was terrific, and it looked like a huge turnout of British cars. Does anyone know the total on the day? It could have been a record. Thanks to George Kress who cooked hot dogs for us. If you don't have you MG running, summer is a good time to find an hour or two a day to do a little work on the car. Just imagine a jaunt down a winding country road on a warm fall day with the smell of autumn leaves in the air to give yourself some incentive to get that car out on the road. It is amazing how much progress you can make by just doing a little task every day.
On that note, progress is moving along well on my MGB GT project. Having the car sit for about 10 years wreaked havoc on the electrical system. Almost every switch and light needed work. Fortunately, most of the light sockets and Lucas switches can be disassembled with some care and refurbished.
Please come out for our Summer Picnic on Sunday, August 20th at the Beveridge Pavillion in North Park. Even if you can't come out in an MG, come on out anyway to enjoy a nice afternoon in the park with MG friends.
