“Yes. In This Car.”

By Roy Locock I am a traveler, a gypsy, nomad, drifter or any of the names given to people who feel they don’t have roots. I have always been this way. I am curious. I want to know what’s over the next hill, and then the next. Between my teens and my sixties I held…

Nineteen Again

By John Russell The 1930 Ford Model A pickup truck sat in the woods, surrounded by trees, its canvas roof hanging like Spanish moss. I had put a lot of time into my brother’s 1928 Model A pickup—he could drive and I had no license, being too young. But I wanted my own. “Would $50…

Making a Splash!

By Derwood Schrotberger A friend recommend that I send you photos of my car from when we ventured a 200-mile trip to a British car outing at a farm in western North Carolina where they have a large private lake. I was inspired to make a “splash” impression. Did this canoe carrier surprise folks? Yes… at…

Twin Cam

By David Clark The Glory Days of the 1930s were long in the past. It had been 20 years since MG was a dominant force, owning records for absolute speed in the classes between 500 and 2,000cc.

Built to Last

By Ed Sweeney My father is a craftsman. Not by trade, as he spends his days managing an industrial machine shop. Many of the same standards apply, but it’s much less of an artistic endeavor. He saved that skill set for home, which allowed me to observe the process. Rebuilding his MGB in the garage…

Advice from a Mechanic

By David Stuursma “All the good mechanics are disappearing. So I’ve raised my own.” Dick Luening said pointing to his sons. “Glen’s a hardcore mechanic, and Todd, my younger son, is an metal artist. Todd can weld a car together. I don’t have to look for rust-free MGBs. It’s unfortunate, but the true mechanics are…

1959 MGA Samurai: Every Day is the Best Day in the A

By Tim Vachon We winched this beast onto our trailer from an Amarillo, Texas open field. Bought online in 2006, this tired MGA was designed as a poor man’s roadster, made to drive in the local race, run around and then put back home for future adventures. They made a boatload of these British cars and…

A Day with Richard Lockhart

The Mongrel in Tennessee: “A Day with Richard Lockhart” by Ralph Arata I previously wrote a driveline article on “Garage Tour – Tennessee Style” but this one is a bit different. Since relocating to the Knoxville Tennessee area, Susan and I have joined the Blount British Car Club (BBC) – an active club of 80 members….

Dashing Through the Snow

There’s something magical, and more than a little taboo, about driving a sports car in the snow. Onlookers think you’re nuts and would never do that if it were their car. Or so they say as they continue to stare at the sight of it. When I received the following story from Jamie Boss, I…
