Britfest was very nice this year indeed. I saw lots of list members 
including, Frank C.(nice Austin), Mike and Barbara Lechstein (those 
were stainless steel rocker covers for my 77 B I was carrying / You got 
a problem where that? :-) ), Richard Boris (he is great to go hunting 
for specific items thru the vending area / got eagle's eyes), also saw 
Rick Brown and I'm sure there are a few I'm forgetting. Wished Phil H. 
had made more of an effort to track me, I would have like to have 
seen/met him.
Some of the more out standing cars were, Ron Zweig's Sabra, John 
Jenning's 140 Jag and that green and black Morgan. The variety of makes 
and Models was great with Hillmans, Humbers, TVRs, Lotuses, Morrises, 
Mini Coopers and Austins. I was just happy that they drew a clear 
separation between the Triumphs and the MGs, thus averting any turf 
wars. Although I will admit that I took more than one glace in the 
direction of that beautiful Red Triumph Stag Convertable.
Won hands free flashlite thing that you wear like glasses as a door 
prize and threw an Ignitor electronic ignition unit in my 75 B (with 
the help of Dave Blackwell / actually he put it in I just got him a Hot 
Dog with the works while he was doing it). 

Next for me will be Carlisle Import Weekend. I'll be there with my son 
Adam and his 72 MGB as well as one of my cars. Also coming up in June 
are the Dare to be British weekend, June 6th and 7th at Lime Rock 
Raceway (Saturday)/Newburgh(Sunday). Brits of the Hudson with the help 
of Eastern NY MGA Club has arranged for a real nice weekend package 
including Hotel and Meals for $150 per couple (?$125 single?) and 
another real fun event is MG Car Club - Long Island Centre's "The 
British Are Coming !!" Show / Funkhana / Valve Cover Races / Parts Flea 
Market Event. Just the setting on the grows of Bayard Cutting Arboretum 
is worth the trip for this show on the 14th of June.

Am I babbling again? For more info about east coast events try my
