There are times when I look at my MGs, and how much work they always need, that I just want to dump 'em all, and drive my old (17 to 29 years old) Japanese cars. My '92 Integra GS-R was resting in a carport for about six months, and I just started 'er up. Brakes weren't locked up, rubber pieces hadn't cracked, electrical parts were still working. As much as I love my old MGs, if it wasn't for nostalgia and friendships, I would jettison the MGs.

Robert my good friend....

No, I'm not disappearing completely... just need to be less active in the hobby for now.

I've made too many extremely close, deep, personal relationships on here to completely walk away. That's what this hobby does to many of us and I'm proud that it's infested my soul like many others.

And you don't know the half of it - Wayne couldn't be more of a big brother to me that if we shared DNA -- his fingerprints are all over that car's restoration too.... he's honestly the ONLY person I ever wanted to own that GT if it wasn't me.

He's gonna drive it like he stole it (cuz he promised he would!) so I'm sure you'll all continue to see a lot of it!

In reply to # 3735775 by EmgesMG Sorry you're taking off Lou but life and priorities change, good luck and hopefully you'll still check in now and then. You couldn't have picked a better custodian for your beautiful GT!



RIP Peter Cummins
RIP John D. Weimer
RIP Mick McGuire

Thanks Robert... I'm not completely leaving this forum much less leaving the incredible, close personal friendships I've made here.

I'll be lurking around still. :-)
