View Full Version : Well hello

I have been on this site for a few months, but haven't really done much with it.
To let you all know who I am, what I do, and what I drive etc.
I bought my first LBC in 1964. [there is a whole story] A '61 MK I Sprite, traded a couple of years later for a '65 wire wheeled MGB, demo, from B&K Imports in Minneapolis.
Then about 1968 the current Sprite I own, a '59.
Still have it, and it's needs more attention but the '77 'B' takes a lot of my time now.
I have been involved in racing as a crew member, worked ice races, and pro rallies, but my first love is still Solo II/auto cross. Which I've been doing since 1992. Had this year off, recovering from total hip replacement, and the 'B' is down with a oil loss problem.
[my fault-cheap oil filters aren't]
I also own a '79 MGB LE which when done paintin' is for sale.
Nice car! And a '82 Porsche 924T also in fresh paint and for sale.
Yeah I know, apostasy.
I was a auto mechanic forever, or it seems, now semi retired selling some tires out of my home/shop, selling industrial products to auto repair shops, [nuts 'n bolts 'n chemicals 'n]
and I'm a Amsoil dealer.
Plus I instruct a small gas engine class through our home school group at our church.
I belong to two clubs, The Minnesota Austin Healey Club,
and the autox club, The Minnesota Autosports Club.

I'm finally off the board, but will continue on as long as I have breathe..........
