Is there any way to hyperlink ( Ithink thats the term) directly from this BBS?


01-09-2003, 07:31 PM
when you go to post a reply look right below the add reply key and you will see instant UBB code. click on the button that describes what you want to do and follow directions. very easy, really

01-10-2003, 09:56 AM

BTW what do you think of the new I-69 route will make getting to E ville much faster as I have always said you cannot get there from here now


01-10-2003, 11:17 AM
I'd heve to agree Sir, I'm just waitin to see how they hook the I164 bypass into Kentucky, either through a neighborhood a bunch of friends live in, or right next to Angel Mounds

Hey Phil !

Just above your Waving Union Jack .jpg in your sig is another .jpg. What is it supposed to be??

This is the link.


And it's not working??

I see a picture of my car in front of the hall of fame museum here in Indy above the union jack does anyone else see something different or nothing?


01-10-2003, 06:32 PM
Yahoo won't allow access to that link for some reason - even directly, so we're seeing nothing there, just a dead link.

Chuck, you are truly living in the land of linkin' . . . (Oops, sorry, that's Illinois, isn't it?) images/icons/grin.gif

01-11-2003, 12:39 AM
but you sat in the chair where he ate his chicken and the town of Boonville (20 miles from here) is where he studied law, so I guess you could be right

01-11-2003, 12:43 AM

01-13-2003, 12:08 AM
I'm here graemlins/hammer.gif I took Alida for a nice drive today to the west coast of the island!! It was beautiful and sunny so we walked down to Sombreo Beach and watched the surfers!! Can you believe it??? About 60' or 65' (F)in the middle of January!! We were down to tee shirts!! I still don't think that getting on a surfboard looked that appealing, even in a wet suit!!! There was a guy down there with a digital camera hooked up to a spotting scope!! Did it ever work good!!! Looked at a couple of motorhomes for our trek next fall, Fords with 460's!! Then we went for oysters and clams!! Beat that for a day off!!!!! images/icons/grin.gif

01-13-2003, 12:57 AM
beats anything I did. Where are you goin on your trip

Gary Lloyd
01-13-2003, 01:27 AM
I was in the chat room for a while, but you never showed up!! I was talkin' to myself!! graemlins/square.gif
Alida and I are comin' back to see you guys!! I gotta help Kim build a garage!! It should be fun!! images/icons/grin.gif

01-13-2003, 01:39 AM
Kim and I were talkin about a garage raisin. If she got the concrete down, tha rest wouldn't take long if she got enough help

Gary Lloyd
01-13-2003, 02:07 AM
I don't know how you guys build there, but I would suspect it would be more like we do than them guys in California!! I would suspect footing, foundation walls and a slab inside the walls!! I can do that, or I can load a bunch of tools and frame it. In a motorhome, there would be no issue of bringing tools across the border!!
I would suspect I would be better to frame it, because it might be a little difficult tying it into the house!! I have done lots of that stuff!! I would really like to help though, and will do whatever works!! graemlins/cheers.gif

01-13-2003, 02:19 AM
that sounds like allot of work, Kim better have lots of Beer. I'll be there if I can get any time off work. I told her I'd do the power. She doesn't know she'll have enough service to run an air compressor or a welder, but it won't hurt her to have it if she needs it

Gary Lloyd
01-13-2003, 02:39 AM
How many amp service does she have?? Is converting her range (kitchen stove) to a gas range an option?? It frees up 40 amps! Well, 25 anyway, cause you still need a dedicated circuit for a 15 amp plug!! Do you think she could find Kokanee Beer?? Check out https://www.beer.com

01-13-2003, 02:14 PM
I'm loading up the truck with all my carpentry tools...did someone say Free Beer??? ;-))


01-13-2003, 02:32 PM
at least you don't have as far to go to do this favor. Gary is on the left coast of Canada and I am in southern Indiana. We're coming to Pennsylvania

tony barnhill
01-15-2003, 01:21 AM
Well, this year's trip is Canada/Alaska...next year's is Nova Scotia & all of US between here & there...we're gonna visit Kim & will need 30amp service for our Airstream motorhome.....so, Gary: reserve enough for it & whatever RV you buy...
...oh, Chevy 454 is better than Ford 460!

Gary Lloyd
01-15-2003, 01:32 AM
Not a chance Tony!! I don't know if you have ever had either apart, but I've had them both!! A 454 is like a glorified 350, and a 460 is like a light diesel!! If a 454 has to work, they don't last!! A good friend of mine has a work boat with a 454, it never lasted 100 hours!! I will agree that a 454 produces more horsepower and breathes better, and will last a long time in a car, but not in a 12,000 lb vehicle!! Just my humble opinion! graemlins/lol.gif

Kim de B
01-15-2003, 09:27 AM
Geez, you guys, I wasn't even gonna check the end of this thread because it was getting so long, but here you are building my garage for me, and you've got it almost done!

The house is a modular-built all-electric, and we definitely want to tie into it. Converting to a gas stove is definitely an option that I know Chas. would love. (But would add to the expense of the overall project, of course.) We've got 5 empty circuit breaker slots left on a 120A subpanel, but we filled up the 200A main panel when we finished a room upstairs. (The electric baseboard heat takes up a lot)

Don't know what that means in term of remaining capacity without going to look in a book, but we definitely need juice for the compressor. Don't have a welder yet, but Chas. has every other tool known to man and Craftsman.

By the way, I do the wiring on our home improvement projects. I'm a rank amateur compared to you guys, but nothing's burned down yet. OK, so I almost electrocuted Chas. once when I didn't turn off the right circuit breaker (a double-switch job), but it could happen to anyone images/icons/rolleyes.gif

Anyway, guess we'd better get going getting this project designed if you guys are really going to come help with it. Hmmm, MG2004 will be in this neck of the woods . . . Maybe we could time it for then? But that'll be in the summer, and Gary's trip will be in the fall, so maybe we'd better stick with that plan, if a plan it really is...

Gary Lloyd
01-15-2003, 12:16 PM
And here I thought you were ignoring us!! images/icons/grin.gif A 200 amp service is good!! I would be really suprised if ther wasn't room!! Yu, we gotta' build you a garage!! graemlins/cheers.gif

01-15-2003, 03:04 PM
the main thing with the service is you gotta remember not everything is gonna be running at the same time. Code here let's you run 40% over the service size. I ran a 70 amp sub panel out to my garage, which is plenty

01-15-2003, 06:00 PM
Can we get this thread to 3 pages?

Why what happens then? graemlins/crazy.gif

01-15-2003, 06:19 PM
we have the longest thread ever?

01-15-2003, 07:08 PM
we have the longest thread ever?

Naw...what happens is that you are now on page three... images/icons/rolleyes.gif

01-15-2003, 08:21 PM
It only shows as two pages for me BTW Kim Gary and Chuck I can swing a hammer and pull wire this sounds like it could be an old fashioned garage raising done many times in the great state of PA by the amish who are some of the best and pickest builders I have known

01-15-2003, 09:33 PM
all we gotta see is when we can all get together and if Kim will put up with us all. about 10 more posts to page three (I think)

01-15-2003, 09:38 PM
how can I get a photo of my MG on this too? I have one n the computer...

01-15-2003, 09:40 PM
How do I get a photo of my MG on the display-name?

01-15-2003, 09:47 PM
first you have to have a picture on the internet then you use the UBB code in your signature. you place in front and in back

Gee, I thought that long one i dis was good!! This is waaaaaaay better!! images/icons/smile.gif Now as far as my twin sisters garage, when are we thinking?? I'm thinking end of Sept or first of Oct 2004!! Does that work?? graemlins/hammer.gif

Gary Lloyd
01-15-2003, 10:17 PM
****!! Kim is gonna be on me!! I gotta learn to proof read everything before I post it!! images/icons/grin.gif

you can edit your posts, Mr. Lloyd. Did you get my email?

01-15-2003, 10:27 PM
I'll bring my tent

Gary Lloyd
01-15-2003, 11:02 PM
Mr Cougill, how do you edit your posts????? graemlins/troll.gif graemlins/square.gif Like I said, I ain't that bright!! Go back to the other board, and I offered to help Sam too!! graemlins/cheers.gif Oh, by the way, I offered you to!! graemlins/cowboy.gif

Gary Lloyd
01-15-2003, 11:11 PM
Got it!! Sorry Chuck!! I re-sent it!!

01-15-2003, 11:32 PM
I got a garage Gary, not very big but enough for the B, if I could get Laura's stuff out. Heated too! I'm gonna build a large yard barn for Laura and solve all my problems this summer. To edit your posts, sir, click on one of the icons above your post, I think it is the piece of paper, and go from there

01-16-2003, 12:03 AM
I guess congrat's are in order...you've made it to three...please fill-out in triplicate...the necessary forms requesting the honorarium of longest thread in BCR history...also please supply all necessary data...and other materials that would help validate your deed to those concerned... graemlins/crazy.gif

I'll drink to that... graemlins/thirsty.gif

01-16-2003, 01:16 AM
can we go for 4? dare we hope? what's the record? graemlins/cheers.gif

01-16-2003, 02:17 AM
I'm impressed I almost entirely useless chatter! I love it. So many of the boards I freequent are all data heavy, and thus rather boring. But you guys do a good job of keeping it fun!


Gary Lloyd
01-16-2003, 02:44 AM
That is our job Tony!! Now if you wanna hear useless chatter, come to Kim's Garage Raising!! She will have Kokanee beer (check out beer.com) and she will have me and Chuck there!! We have a few other friends over on the other BBS, and they seem kinda shy!! If they ome, and Henri comes (even though he has a stinkin' Healey) we will have fun!! Tony (the Autoist) is going to cut the roof images/icons/smile.gif And life will be good!!!! graemlins/thumbsup.gif

01-16-2003, 03:02 AM
and Gary is gonna lift all those rafters up there, because Kim promised to have a black bear to chase me around the yard graemlins/thirsty.gif

01-16-2003, 03:04 AM
youngsmith, you gotta realize we've been doin thia act for a long time graemlins/thumbsup.gif

01-16-2003, 03:23 AM
Hey...during the garage raising...make sure that Gary doesn't get to play with any sharp objects...saws, nails or anything else that could possibly hurt him or...someone else...

Kim de B
01-16-2003, 08:35 AM
Guess I'd better get to saving my pennies for this garage. Not only do I have to find the money to get it designed and supplied, now I gotta buy beer for all the builders. Sounds like any money I'll save on labor is going right into beer!

tony barnhill
01-16-2003, 02:16 PM
Should I, dare I...we'tre talking garages here, so........

Heated & air conditioned with 3-ton unit....2400 square feet on ground floor (including the addition underway right now) with over 1000 square feet on second floor...built entirely by my own 2 hands with help from my high school students! Quik-Lift installed in one bay...holds 14 MG's!

...&, no, this isn't my house - its the garage attached to the house!

tony barnhill
01-16-2003, 02:47 PM
oh, & since its too small for all the cars, here's a photo of a smaller garage (16x32) we built just for overflow storage of the unrestored/original cars in my collection (its since finished except for cedar siding to match big garage & house)....holds a Magnette, MG1100, MGA, & 2 Midgets!

01-16-2003, 02:51 PM
&, yes, Gary....I put the strand board on it in that direction on purpose! I know it should be the other way normally but I had my reasons on this project....

01-16-2003, 03:25 PM
don't look bad to me Tony, but I've seen it all in person, except the shed. and since Tony is gonna do all the cutting, I don't think Gary will get hurt.I'm more worried about the Bear Kim promised

tony barnhill
01-16-2003, 05:26 PM
There ya go....give me an air nailer, a couple of Old Speckled Hens, & Gary in my sights/range...oh, yeah!

I'll check out the quality of his work for Kim when I'm in Victoria this summer...&, about Sep of 2004 I'll be returning from Nova Scotia & can stop by Kim's....

Gary Lloyd
01-16-2003, 05:49 PM
You could try?? images/icons/grin.gif That reminds me of something I was reading in the paper a couple of years ago!! A couple of guys were bulding a house and they were always fighting, so one guy started shooting at the other guy with his nail gun, the poice came and the guy was charged ith assult with a deadly weapon!! graemlins/hammer.gif I figger they must be real wimps!! I been shot lots of times, and it doesn't really even hurt!! graemlins/cheers.gif

01-16-2003, 05:51 PM
but you have seen lethal weapon

Gary Lloyd
01-16-2003, 05:56 PM
All joking aside, I think we should seriously plan on doing a garage for Kim!! It would be a blast!! Who is in?? No Henri!! You drive a Healey!! images/icons/grin.gif graemlins/thirsty.gif

tony barnhill
01-16-2003, 05:57 PM
Gary....I was working on the 'Garage-Mahal' addition the other day, putting a 2nd top plate on a wall...was holding around the 2 plates with right hand while I shot nails with left hand...put one right through my finger...IT HURT!!!

01-16-2003, 06:09 PM
me and Kim's bear will be there, if you give us enough notice

Gary Lloyd
01-16-2003, 06:11 PM
Tony, the worst part is getting it out!! graemlins/lol.gif

01-16-2003, 07:33 PM
No Henri!! You drive a Healey!!

Wow...discrimination...where is an attorney...I smell lawsuit...I'll own your "little" MG... images/icons/shocked.gif graemlins/jester.gif

01-16-2003, 07:50 PM
I guess it would depend on several factors if a nail gun would hurt ie nail size, power and proximity

I am up for helping with the garage raising and Kim I dont need no stickin beer haven't had one for 23 years and not going to start now, besides if I was drinkin beer there aint enough in PA to quench my thirst

I would love to see this thread got to 4 pages BTW Basil what is the record?

01-16-2003, 08:31 PM
it's well on it's way to 4 pages now. we'll count on you being there Phil

01-16-2003, 09:01 PM
Just to add my two pennorth here, may I say how in awe I am of Tony's garage mahal. I can only dream of such a structure. I can assure you that if I built such a thing I would end up living in it!

01-16-2003, 09:12 PM
actually, Tony's garage is smaller than his house by some 50 square feet, per agreement with his wife. and Henri, join the MG list on Tony's site, the autoist (https://www.theautoist.com), buy a tshirt from him (shameless plug) and we'll teach you the secret handsign and you can be one of us (as if you already aren't)

Kim de B
01-16-2003, 10:04 PM
I think Basil gave up trying to keep up with this thread.

Sounds like we're going to have quite a party in a year and a half. Wait until I tell Charles. He won't believe it. We just have to schedule it before hibernation season so Chuck can have the bear visit his tent.

01-16-2003, 10:05 PM
I can bring my own. It's large and black and WAIT! thats a dog

You poor thing. I'm dog tired from a long day at work, and boy, would I love a day to just sit around and vegetate. . . I think I'll just take Friday off. Maybe I'll even start doing a B project, although I hear the temperature's going sub-zero tomorrow and this weekend....

I haven't seen such a useless thread in quite a while... (With the exception of the planning for the barn raising... I mean garage raising.) Next thing you know, people will be quoting Monty Python movies. images/icons/grin.gif

My little contribution to help this thread break 5 pages.

Yeah...and our "quacks" are bigger than our "bites"...actually...when I called on my cell phone for a "private dick"...they sent me a "private duck"...oh well... graemlins/crazy.gif

Oh, and Henri, I figured I'd better give you a 5 star rating before one of these jokers gave you something else


01-17-2003, 03:45 PM
This could be the eternal thread until we get Kim's garage built! LOL But what a nice thinkg to read while I ate my lunch today...what else is there to do when it is 20 degrees???

In Missouri, my dream garage would have A/C and heat. I would like an overhead hoist for removing the engine. It would be nice if there was a pit with removable grates in case- (in case??? what am I thinking? graemlins/crazy.gif ) -for when I need to get under the Midget. Lots of shelving would be nice for spare parts, etc. Then a nice 3' X 8' workbench would come in handy. Lots of lights would grace the dream garage and at least one whole wall would be paneled with peg board.

That's for starters.... graemlins/lol.gif

01-17-2003, 05:12 PM
Gary, dont you build in car lifters?

01-17-2003, 06:50 PM
I'll just take Tony's garage mahal. I've seen it in person, it'll do.

01-17-2003, 06:57 PM
This is the beauty of useless threads. You don't have to read and contribute to it unless you're having a useless day. . .

Anyway, I mentioned to Chas. today at breakfast that in a year and a half or so, we may have a couple Land Yachts and MGs descending on our property to build our garage and extension. He is really doubting that this will ever happen. I told him that, if nothing else, the very thought of it could get us motivated to start making plans for it.

He also doesn't think we can get a construction loan if a bunch of beer-drinking British car fanatics, most of whom we have never met, are going to be building it . . .

01-17-2003, 06:59 PM
you've met me

01-17-2003, 07:01 PM
and remember the pony express a couple of years ago? Actually Tony and Gary are planning to be in the area at the same time so I think we can pull it off

01-17-2003, 07:18 PM
Excuse me...This is the beauty of useless threads. You don't have to read and contribute to it unless you're having a useless day. . ....I resemble that remark... graemlins/lol.gif

Kim de B
01-17-2003, 08:07 PM
Chuck, that was present company excepted, of course. (And gee, thanks for posting that photo . . . )

And Chas will get to meet you and probably a bunch of the others this summer, so you can convince him of the probability of it all then.

(He's gradually learning abouth The Brotherhood of the B.)

01-17-2003, 08:14 PM
I don't like it either, but it's the only one I got

01-17-2003, 08:18 PM
My contribution to the 6th page

And Kim we will just get Naomi to talk to Chas as she seems to be able to get her hubby to do anything


01-17-2003, 08:40 PM
but this is only page 4

Well I guess I am gonna get sued by Henri!! ****!! I didn't want it to go that far!! images/icons/wink.gif I will have to hire Sam Chandler and get real serious!! graemlins/angel.gif Before you know it, I'll be driving a Healey (Henri's ol one) and looking after his wife and kids!! images/icons/tongue.gif Sometimes life is tuff!! images/icons/smile.gif Maybe, just maybe if Henri does show up at Kim's and proves to be a decent guy (for a Healey driver) I won't take it all!! graemlins/crazy.gif I know, you guys know I have a slam dunk, but I feel kind of charitable today!! The weather is beautiful!! Any way Kim, if you need to prove that you have a qualified contractor, I have a lot of them, but they are all Canadian, with a little good old fashioned BS, you should be able to make it work!! graemlins/lol.gif
I see a '62 Healey sold on the Barret Jackson auction today for $36,000!! It was really nice though!!
How come I can't minimize this and pick up a picture to put in?? I have lost it twice and it was waaaaaaay funnier the first two times!!

01-17-2003, 11:30 PM
Gary...I don't know about a picture...what about I draw you a smile...I should have added this in earlier...because you're funny...

Hey, Chuck...have you heard about the new car museum in Tupeol, Mississippi? Supposed to be over 100 great cars on display plus you can watch their restorations through a big window into their shop...Jerri & I are gonna drive over tommorrow to check it out....called the "Tupelo Automobile Museum"....

sounds great I'll have to check it out sometome. Take some pics if they let you

I just can't wait to see how many pages this thread will to go on. Henri and Gary, I lost track of your conversation . . . What would this alleged lawsuit be over? (I'm too lazy to go back through this whole multi-page thread in order to figure it out!)


Gary Lloyd
01-18-2003, 12:01 PM
It's all Henri's fault Kim!! I wasn't going to let him help on your garage, because he drives a Healey!! images/icons/grin.gif Then he decided that he was going to launch a discrimination suite against me!!! I therefore and henceworth images/icons/smile.gif contacted my attorneys!! We seached all precidents in the state of California (cuz that is where Henri lives, and they give out larger awards) and Pennsylvania (because that is where this alledged discrimination will take place) and I think he is in serious trouble!! graemlins/angel.gif So I guess really it is all your fault!! edited by images/icons/wink.gif

Hey Gary there was an ambulance chasing attorney looking for you he said he was representing Henri the healy and benz owner (soon to be former owner)


01-18-2003, 03:15 PM
Gary, I hear yoou've heard from the attourneys, Dewey, Cheatham , and Howe

01-18-2003, 06:21 PM
Henri I heard thet you were represnted by Dewey Cheatham and Howe In fact I have information that they have contacted Gary by phone on your behalf

I wonder if anyone will ever read this thread from the beginning...it's now a novel...2nd edition...and it has a life of it's own...

One more thing...I washed my Healey today and polished it...and then took it on a nice long drive...so what did you guys do...in the snow today... graemlins/lol.gif graemlins/lol.gif graemlins/lol.gif graemlins/lol.gif

Hey, Gary.....I've been in this thing all along...I just redirect the thread occassionally....I mean, do you really think you can handle 2 families in different parts of the world? Driving an MG up there with 1 wife; driving an Austin Healy other place with anther wife....&, lawyer? Expensive, buddy...you might have to sell one family to afford the other...&, you can't sell the one you don't yet own!

...nah, time to talk about what we did over weekend...or go back to talking about Kim's garage....we've gotta build a circular drive so you & I can get in & out with our rigs pulling our MG's....mine's 50' long including car trailer...

...&, I welcome Henri 'cause I wanna drive his car...I had a '54 100-4 once & loved it!

Okay...enough is enough...against my attorney "Bubba" Williams advice...and much to his chagrin...I've decided to take matters into my own hands...and since I'm the offend party...I'm challenging you to a duel...at 3 paces...with "mallets"...and I get to go first...


01-19-2003, 04:35 AM
Someone put a tent over this circus... graemlins/crazy.gif

Maybe we should do a TV Sitcom about this thread...it would have to have a "british" flair...what would we call it..."Monty Python" has already been done...lets see..."Can I Help You Build a Garage, Madam"...no that won't do..."The Crew From BCR"...no again..."A Canuck Over Indiana"...still off..."Three "Real" Men And A Hammer"(Chuck, Gary and Tony...plus Phil)...I know that makes four...It's for artistic sake...three is universal...four is "square" (my new age moment)...I got it..."A Girl, Her MG And A Garage"...stay tuned for more in tomorrow's installment... graemlins/nonod.gif

Will Gary get to hammer...

Will Chuck be able to explain why not to bring a knife to a gunfight...

Will Tony find his way back home from the musemum...

Will Phil figure out that we are on page 6...

Will Kim ever get a garage...

And, last...what is Henri doing on an MG Forum...when he drives a Healey... graemlins/hammer.gif graemlins/cryin.gif graemlins/nonod.gif graemlins/yesnod.gif graemlins/troll.gif

you forgot:

Will Tony really cut roof rafters?

Will Tony and Gary kill each other?

Will Chuck be smart enough to stay out of it?

Will Kim ever regain her sanity?

Will Kim's husband Charles ever trust an LBC and ride with Kim to a show?

Will Henri ever let Tony drive his Healy?

Will Chuck's wife Laura be able to get all her antique purchases in the trunk of a B?

and finally, will Kim produce the fabled black bear?

and we could call it FAWLTY GARAGES in Basil's honor

Also, why would Henri let you drive his Healey when you didn't show up in New Orleans last year?? Blake, Steven, Tom, Cole and the other were counting on you!! Maybe you wouldn't bring it back!! graemlins/lol.gif Of course I am a graemlins/angel.gif and would never steal a Healey!! images/icons/wink.gif

01-19-2003, 08:54 AM
Ponders hiring his own attorney and the feasability pf filing his own suit against Henri as he reffered to me as a "hammer" and a "clown" Maybe I could be the new owner of the Healey and the Benz's I would let Henri keep his wife and kids they are high maintainance items

I will be calling Dewey later today as this time in the morning is not for man nor beast and he was out all night chasing ambulances to see if this case would have any merit and more impoprtantly WHAT WILL IT BE WORTH


01-19-2003, 09:43 AM
OK...so this thread is going to last until 2004??? I guess it is safe to unload my radial arm saw out of the pickup truck if we're not building the garage for another year yet???


Kim de B
01-19-2003, 10:46 AM
Yeah, Bruce, this cast of characters isn't talking about arriving on this side of the continent until fall of 2004. You're safe!

Tony, we've got the property for a circular driveway, but we'd have to destroy Chas's nature trail through the woods in order to do it, and he won't go for that!

Backing your 50-foot Behemoth out onto the street won't be too much of a problem, since we don't get that much traffic . . . Or probably the best plan would be to back it into the driveway to begin with. And we don't have to worry about upsetting the neighbors, because they're all dead . . . images/icons/rolleyes.gif

01-19-2003, 12:27 PM
Seems that no-one wants to step up to design the garage, so I will offer to be the design consultant. graemlins/computer.gif
1.We all know the usual stuff that is must have;
heat, air conditioning, air compressor ... but it must be in a separate utility room (soundproof)
2.It must also have a floor drain and hot and cold running water.
3.It should have a resilient floor because I hate dropping tools or parts only to have them break on concrete.
4.A platter turntable the size of the car to spin it around to any direction
5.A front and rear twin hydaulic post to attach and lift the car, with rotisserie heads to invert the car. Both 4 and 5 by remote control.
6.Must have skylights, not windows. (don't want anyone to see inside)
7.An overhead crane rail and engine hoist (remote controlled)
8.Separate parts department room with every nut, bolt, washer possible for your car.
9.Because the garage must be high enough for all this ... about 16 feet clear... a loft for the bigscreen TV to watch car races, beer fridge and kegs on tap, microwave for popcorn, a computer for research, and a lazy-boy(girl)-recliner for those moments when working on the car becomes too frustrating.

Then you repeat 1 to 9 for the number of cars you intend to park in the garage.

Almost forgot, not attached to the house because it is too easy for the family to come and interupt you. No phone or intercom either, cause they will call you. And of course a bathroom with a shower is a must.

I estimate the whole thing would cost a meager $250,000 (Canadian) per car. Let me know and I will start the detailed construction drawings right away. graemlins/jester.gif

And of course there is my fee.

you have forgotten the complete bathroom, so Kim can clean up before she goes into the house.

01-19-2003, 02:46 PM
Chuck...I guess...reading is another difficulty for MG owners...

Almost forgot, not attached to the house because it is too easy for the family to come and interupt you. No phone or intercom either, cause they will call you. And of course a bathroom with a shower is a must.

I have to make sure that I spread it around...Gary was too easy of a target...oh I forgot about Phil.. graemlins/cheers.gif

Hey...Gary what are you doing on the Healey board...I guess everyone wants a Healey...even MG guys.. graemlins/angel.gif

I warned them about you over there...I told them to lock all there doors and keep their women and children safe...because some MG guy (Gary and Chuck) were posting on the board... graemlins/lol.gif graemlins/lol.gif graemlins/lol.gif graemlins/lol.gif

And I thought Chas. was daydreaming thinking of putting an oil pit in the the garage! He's got nothing on you guys!

I see that I am going to have to start a fund-raiser here on the BCF in order to subsidize this project..... images/icons/shocked.gif

01-19-2003, 06:35 PM
and we could call it FAWLTY GARAGES in Basil's honor

I don't know...do you really think Kim wants a "faulty" garage...or is that what she will get if you guys build it...now I know why she's nervous...I heard she's buying...insurance...with a rider that states...something about BCR MG people building a garage...while drinking her beer...I don't really know for sure...it's a rumor at this point...you know how these things get started...someone idly makes a remark...and then next thing you know your reading it on a posting...so on and so forth...forget it...it's just a rumor...nothing to worry about...she'll probably be happy with any kind of garage...even if it only stands for a...what couple months...maybe a year... images/icons/rolleyes.gif

I'm sure it would really work in gardens!! graemlins/thirsty.gif I only went to that terrible Healey board to try and help them a bit!! I see they are a little short on......... um, should I say it?? graemlins/lol.gif graemlins/lol.gif

Gary...I don't need to help you dig that grave...you're doing a good enough job by yourself...&, my daughter said she also would have a hard time defending a Canadian who signs onto the Socialistic crap your gov't puts out! images/icons/wink.gif images/icons/wink.gif

I think I might steal a Healey for Tony!! graemlins/cowboy.gif He still doesn't get it!! images/icons/wink.gif

01-20-2003, 01:13 AM
oh, well

01-20-2003, 10:42 PM
well boys and girls, I went back to visit my surgeon today and had 27 staples taken out and got a new boot caste to wear for the next 4 weeks. I wore my MG List Tshirt and it turns out that he has recently purchased an E type that was advertised as being "rust free" paying about 30K for a car he thought just needed paint. He took it to the local Brit mechanic who showed him that the Backbone of the chasis along with the sills were just being held together with Bondo. The mechanic wouldn't even take it for a test drive for fear of breaking it in half. He has engaged messrs. Dewey, Cheathem, and Howe to get his money back.

01-20-2003, 11:38 PM
Did he get kissed cause it sure sounds like got F#@&%

Another case of buying a car cause it looks cute amazing what can be done with bondo and a rattle can

I went back to visit my surgeon today and had 27 staples taken ou

OUCH!!!! Sorry I picked on you... graemlins/nonod.gif

01-21-2003, 12:22 AM
The biggest problem is that it burned him on collector Brits, or collector cars at all for the matter. And I got some more pain pills so don't worry about me graemlins/thirsty.gif

Good for you Chuck!! Tell that doctor to keep the faith, but next time check it before he buys it!! Hi Henri!! images/icons/shocked.gif

01-21-2003, 02:11 AM
he said he looked close, but he didn't put it on a lift. He bought it in North Carolina

01-21-2003, 02:16 AM
I guess the thing about this topic that I find most humorous, is the fact that the tittle says "? for Basil" and Basil is about the only person who hasn't responded!

Tony (not the autoist)

Gary Lloyd
01-21-2003, 02:19 AM
I think Basil is trying to figger out what this is all about!!

If you read the whole thing at one time, you'll be rolling, especially if you know all the side stories we can't talk about here. btw, Gary, I'm goin to look at a Corvair for Tony Thursday

01-21-2003, 02:25 AM
I thought this was all about nonsensical chatter! I'm still trying to decide wether to jump in and volunteer myself and my services to build this now fabbled garage next year. I think it might be worth it, just to meet al these crazy folks! (though I still wouldn't be driving an MG)

Cmon over Tony, we can use all the help we can get. And the only reason I'll probably drive a B to the event is to keep Laura out of those New England antique shops

01-21-2003, 02:32 AM
and I may have to buy a land yacht to keep up with the Lloyds and Barnhills

01-21-2003, 02:37 AM
Hmm, well I've got a "land yacht" but I"m not sure the spitfire could tow it. my land yacht is a '69 model airstream, and it's badged Land yacht right on the thing!


01-21-2003, 12:22 PM
I would like to take my B to the Garage Raisin'since Chas and Kim live about two hours from me, but if I am gonna take a bunch of tools, I will probable have to take the ole Ford pickup or the Surburban...which I hope to replace with a TrailBlazer by then. BTW, did MG ever build a 4WD SUV??? Hmmmmmmm ;-))

Bruce (E Curb backwards) and not the Autoist either, but I can dream of a fleet of MG's!!!

01-21-2003, 12:40 PM
cmon over. The more the merrier
