View Full Version : New "old Guy"

My name's Dave, From Springfield, Illinois, I ran a shop here for 30 years. I'm now retired. Did a lot of British cars. Have owned a lot of British cars. I still have a Mini, and a "Landar" (Mini powered Sport racer) This looks like a "comfotable" site! I was looking for information on a Miata powered MGB and found this site - No I'm not a purist.
Just remember "Of course your car is making a funny little noise Mrs. Jones, It's a funny little car!"
Hope to be talking to all of you soon.

Hi There Davo;

A Welcome from the Pocono Mtns of PA:

I suspect we`re "ALL" in the approx. same age bracket: How often do You see an "18 yr. old" driving a LBC or even at a Local Car Show these days!! Personally; I would love to see the "Kids" taking an Interest in these Very Interesting Toys of Ours; But, It just does`nt seem to happen! If It does`nt have 2000 Watt Speakers etc etc; It`s Not worth having; I believe that`s their Opinion? That`s the way they think here in PA anyway: Hope I have`nt offened anyone! Should there be some "Young People" on this Forum; "CONGRATULATIONS" cause You are in fact in a Minority!

Welcome Again Davo & Let`s see a Pic of that "Landar"!!

Regards, Russ (59)

Love that quote for noise. After 40 years under hoods, I'll bet you and I could trade stories for ever. "No you don't wait for the oil light to come on for oil changes, that's what the ugly sticker is for." Anyway, welcome to the best little talk shack in the world, and remember, Thank Basil daily.

Welcome from old [censored] Sparkie! OOPS, discovered one of the sensored words... sounds like a poof

Having a sound system that's more powerful than the engine is just wrong....
