...only the British cars aren’t afraid of getting wet. Great turnout at the Cars & Coffee this morning in La Cañada

Brian, I grew up in La Canada, bought my first MG there-a dark blue that looked for all the world like yours except it was a ‘63, different wheels. I don’t recognize where those are parked? Mark

Day after the rain in LA is perfect B driving weather. It's the closest to Britain that we got! Top down, heater on. It's my favorite driving weather

Well, no wonder. Nobody told me, and I only live a few miles away. That's your problem -- poor communication, not weather. I laugh at the rain. As long as I have a towel.

But I have no idea where that parking lot is, and I don't see any coffee. You would definitely have needed some coffee this morning.

I’ll let you know next time we head out there. For reference here’s a shot of what it normally looks like pretty much every Sat morning.

It was snowing ten miles from La Canada if that counts. (and 5,000 feet higher)

There will be some early MGs in the rain tomorrow morning, and at least one B that I know of as well.

yep true Dave ...it does really rain up here and further north when it does ...but they get their fair share of fires and floods over there also ...and if with a bit of warning I think I would prefer the water than 3 feet of snow ....lololol

Growing up in Montreal we had a saying: "The nice thing about rain is that you don't have to shovel it."

Is the Roadster using the white line as a datum line to check the toe-in or is it just badly parked?
