The British Motor Cabbies have struck again!!

The British Motor Cabbies is graciously offering you these stylish and tastefully decorated rims for your car. They are secured to your front step to deter anyone from wanting to steal them before you have had a chance to deal with them.

Should you not wish to retain these prized objects, we would be happy to retrieve them. But as we have already expended considerable energy to get them to you we ask a favor in kind.

As you know the Calgary MG Car Club is supporting the “A Daye’s Ride for Sarcoma” on September 12 in Canmore. A donation to this endowment will further research for Sarcoma here in Alberta. Ron Daye, a Gold Sponsor for BritsBest for the last 5 years, lost his son to this disease last year. The goal is to provide funding for a dedicated oncologist every year until a cure is found.

So if you would regretfully like to have these beautiful rims removed we ask that you provide a donation to the Daye’s Ride for Sarcoma. There will be a link on the Calgary MG Car Club website. Or the MG Experience forum. Or go to the link below. Or fill out the form in this letter and call 403 397 0645. All donations of $15 or more will have a tax receipt. And 95% of all donations go directly to the research fund.

https://albertacancer.ca/rangelandengineeringbike2015/fundraiser?tab=1

We are suggesting three levels of donations.
$25.00 – The British Motor Cabbies will gladly remove the rims.
$50.00 – We will gladly remove the rims and take them to any other worthy recipient of your choice that would possibly like them
$75.00 – We will gladly remove the rims, take them to any other worthy recipient of your choice, and ensure you never see them again.
Any donation is appreciated.
Thank you.

How do these rims travel all by themselves around town?

They sure are a busy foursome cool smiley

Can you believe the busy foursome are just rolling around finding the best places to be? But they are restless and do not seem to stay put for long.

And they seem to have rabbit like tenancies and there may be another set rolling around!

The babies came! And all are fine and happy! And just like their parents they are anxious to be rolling around as well.

In reply to # 3046102 by rdeet The babies came! And all are fine and happy! And just like their parents they are anxious to be rolling around as well.


This is a wheel surprise, some wheel art appeared at the blink of an eye!

The question now is what to do? Especially considering that our neighbours’ daughter is getting married in the park behind the house and they expect about 150 guests, most of which will park on our street in front of the house. Oh well, can't deal with this now, too busy getting the place to look good plus another neighbour offered some wood from a tree that he just cut down and that is more pressing; got to sleep on it!

The first step will be to consult our resident art aficionado; surely 30 years of art appreciation at the Glenbow Museum will come-in handy.

What to do, what to do?

• We consider getting an oxy-acetylene kit to cut the chain, but that would be a waste of a nice chain.
• We could cut the pine bush to release the wheels, but that bush has been there over thirty years and it is like a
member of the family.
• That’s it, we will call a locksmith to pick the locks; weekend rate, two locks, there has to be a better way!
• The wheels appear to be MGB Rostyle wheels, the exact model for my ‘71 MGB , it matches the wheel of the spare tire and I do not have an original set. It would be nice to release the wheels from their predicament, clean them and keep them for the MGB, EXCEPT those crafty travelling wheels must have invited one of their cousins because one wheel does not match the other three Rostyle.

What to do, what to do?

Got it! Tomorrow, friends are coming over for dinner and we will pick their brains for a solution; maybe they will agree that we should keep the art form until the snow flies?

The British Motor Cabbies are glad you are enjoying the rims. Yes that cousin is seriously a kink in one of your plans. But what is there to clean up?

We are sure the chain is only there to keep them together while they rest for an evening. They are a restless bunch.

You will have to let us know what your art aficionado thinks of them.

The babies got hungry and decided to roll away to somewhere else. Hopefully they will get fed here!

It would seem the parents are rolling again as well.

Remember to feed the babies. Maybe a full grown car will appear.
