    Joe, New Member Washington DC

    Well I took the plunge and bought my first British automobile, 1978 MG Midget that runs!
    In the past restored three VW Beetles, 1970 Convertible, 1971 Beetle and currently have a restored 1972 Super Beetle.
    I will be seeking out your expertise in areas that maybe unfamiliar to me.
    I am open to any suggestions about this new Midget you may have and will share my expertise s a helicopter mechanic USAF 8 years and the remaner of my military career until retirement as an engineer aboard 6 UN ships.

    Thank you!

    Thank you. Worked on USAF helicopters for 8 years and an engineer on USN ships until I retired. I am still employed for a defense contractor in Washington DC.

    Well we have similar backgrounds then. I was USAF for 24 years, then worked for a Def. Contractor for another 20. Now happily retired (and boy I don't miss the commute every day!)
