    Re: Welcome to the Future.

    When I was making regular weekend trips from Hampton, VA to Pittsburgh and back in a '66 MGB, I had Semperit tires on it. Winter or summer. They weathered snow and ice quite well. Kept a set of...
  2. MGB Re: 1972 MGB Project Blue First attempt and fixing no spark and other checks

    Appears you've got a good plan in place. Will be interested to keep up with the project.

    BTW: WD stands for "Water Displacement". I'd recommend the CRC2-26 as the only thing to use on electrical...
  3. MGB Re: 1972 MGB Project Blue First attempt and fixing no spark and other checks

    Even though the points came from a box and are "new", take some #250 wet-or-dry sandpaper and make sure they're shiny-clean! As Yakko explained, when the points close the coil is triggered to dump...

    Re: computer security

    Quite different than a hardware firewall. Rules set up on an appliance apply to all behind it. Software on one computer sets rules for only that machine.

    It takes a bit more effort to set up the...

    Re: Why Do They

    We see it a LOT down here. Out-of-state plates are given a wide birth. The: "OH CARP!! I wanna be OVER THERE!!" syndrome on full display: Whanging across three or four lanes, no signal, no regard for...

    Re: Welcome to the Future.

    My point. We're not 'there' yet.

    I always considered hydrogen more viable as a fuel than about anything else. Only real issue I can think of with it is making the transfer process at the...

    Re: Interesting experience

    Agree. Depending on the material, swarf comes off in different ways. More malleable materials usually come off in curls, while more brittle stuff will "chunk" off. Metallurgy is COOL! :cool:

    Re: Rental Car

    It's FRENCH!

    That's all I need to know.

    If it's only a rental, try it out and look it over. Carefully.

    Re: Ford vs. Ferrari

    I suppose Leni Riefenstahl's Triumph des Willens is what political correctness produced. And something of an example of what not to bow to today. I'd call "Ford vs. Ferrari" a docudrama,...

    Never wanted for heat in the cabin of MGB's. Had to dial it back sometimes in Pennsylvania winter conditions.

    As one of the Ferrari's sails off into the air and crashes in the weeds, then it breaks up... into shards of GFRP. Bit of "poetic license" I guess. But a detail possibly correctable with CGI to...

    Re: Why Do They

    I've maintained that turn signals were an optional expense a lot of folks decided to forego when buying their cars. "We should get the heated seats instead." :smirk:
  19. Re: It's Friday - music again - songs your parents sang around the house

    Indeed she did. And her two younger sisters, as well. Three-part harmony was a common thing at their get-togethers. Andrews Sisters or McGuire Sisters songs were not unusual. Dad made recordings on...

    Sadly, she passed a while back. But she put me in mind of a bulldozer. A short stocky white-haired bulldozer. :highly_amused:
  21. Re: It's Friday - music again - songs your parents sang around the house

    First time I heard Linda Ronstadt's "Different Drum" on the radio I thought my mom had a "secret life". Mom's singing voice was so similar it was shocking.
