Well, I’ve been working on the MG TC quite a bit. Nearly all of the incorrect bits and pieces have been replaced with the proper components. The only thing harder than finding original MG TC parts is writing the check for them! But all the hard work has paid off in one small way. We won our first car show! In a shocking turn of events, the neglected old TC we found sitting outside for ten years has won first place in its class, MG pre-1962, at the Moss Motors / VARA Buttonwillow British Extravaganza.

At this event, Linda and I also got to ride along in a pair of 1934 MG NE race cars during the pre-war exhibition parade laps! This was the experience of the weekend for sure. Click the event link above for photos, which will hopefully be posted soon.

In another twist of insanity we have decided to drive the MG TC from Los Angeles to Mount Hood, Oregon for GoF West 2006 this July. This will be the second big trip in the TC, the first being the TCMG / ARR Sequoia Conclave last year. But this trip will be over triple the distance, around 2,200 miles round trip! This should be… interesting.
