After four months at boarding school and the worst winter in 20 years (still going to be 0 deg C tonight). Just waiting for SWMBO to get off the phone and we are off. woo hoo!

I drove my MGB for the first time in 2014 today (it's in our faculty parking lot right now).

(but I've already driven the red Midget and the Super 7 this year).

It was 50F here last night (10C). So, not bad.

That has to be exciting. I know I was chomping at the bit having Baby Blue off the road for 8 weeks, let alone 4 months.

Very exciting to be driving her again. A little creative juggling to get room in the garage - why does stuff accumulate like that? And she is safe and sound. Even painted the floor in honour of her return.

Not a great picture but this is what I arrived to get (She stays at the business of a friend - he has tons of surplus space and, so it is an easy solution that frees up badly needed space over the winter.)

Looks really good for being stored all winter! It's always great getting them out at the end of winter. We've had our Bugeye out and about quite a bit, but the 100-6 is still waiting for me to do the springtime prep work....

Drove mine yesterday and today for the first time in almost a year. No wonder why I've been in such a bad mood the last six months.

Looking good! I think I will drop the tops this weekend and go for a spin. I feel inspired.

Don't know if I will get to drive this weekend. Just woke my daughter and we are off to a Vintage Motorcycle Swap Meet. then home and hopefully some garage time.

Tomorrow morning and evening church and if there is time this:

should be very interesting - I have been there and they aren't exaggerating when they talk about inaccessibility. This guy was a fixture for years, sadly he had a bad reputation business wise (mostly earned) and loved his parts too much to really price them appropriately - will be interesting to see how far they get.
