GOBMC Car & Cycle Show - 2017

Posted on: Sunday June 11, 2017

Our entry to the show pic

This was the 18th annual show put on by the Greater Ozark British Motor Club. They're in SW Missouri, lots of members live in Springfield, but they put the show on in Carthage. Carthage is a small town, very pretty, and the show is held on the town square. This was our third time at this show in the last 4 years - we missed last year due to a family obligation. The club does a great job of hosting - a parking lot party on Friday night, a well run show, a driving event, a very nice awards b...

Our entry to the show pic

This was our third trip to the show, and we had our usual great time. Lots of Tulsa folks make this trip, it's by far the most popular s...

Here's the thread: http://www.mgexp.com/phorum/read.php?1,856390,2968983#msg-2968983 The net out - I didn't brace, I paid attention to where I was supporting the car, measured and monitored the door opening, and did the final panel test fits with the doors installed....

MG 2016 - Louisville

Posted on: Monday June 20, 2016

The Tulsa caravan ready to roll

Every 5 years there's a gathering of all of the MG clubs. 2016 was the fifth of these, scheduled for Louisville, KY. "Maintaining the breed". We went with 4 other couples from Tulsa - another MGB, and two TD's. Louisville is about 700 miles from Tulsa, so we took it in 2 days, stopping for the night at Poplar Bluff, MO, each way. This was good exercise for my new cruise control. It worked well. When setting, speed drops about 5 mph before coming back up to the set point. And every no...
