Got lots stuff done with good people. What a hoot! AND...the weather held off for us. I always learn stuff... one more time before we head out?

Yes- yesterday worked out very well! Not too much rain and we got a fair amount of work done.
I'll attach some photos when I can get them to load--

Very fun day, no drive train removals this time so lots of productive time on other things. I'm thankful for the keen observations from TOC that saved my radiator from sure death.

Here's pics from Bill:

Rich Dave and Mike working on Mike's Bugeye:

BillL (Pythias) and me working out the wiring to get the lights hooked up on the Bugeye bonnet:

Thanks for the pictures guys - looks like you were all having fun.

Hey - OC guys, where are we doing this?

At BillM's house.......western Washington.....

BTW, based upon many, many years of use, the "TOC" does NOT stand for "table of contents", but "The Old Curmudgeon", as I have been referred to for several decades......

In that photo, I am installing the carbs, if I recall.

Yes, thanks for the explanation of the name Dave.

I'll add some bit of explanation to each photo now, I was late for the MG Car Club Northwest show at the Triple X in Issaquah this morning so I didn't have time to add much.

looks like you all had a great time, wish I could have made it there. Next time!

Next time should be relatively soonish - at least for those going to Wisconsin in July!!
Anyone taking a Spridget to Nevada in June?

Nice to see Mike's Bugeye, even if only in pictures. For the longest time, I thought of it as the "alleged" Bugeye!.
