Well, that would suck (for me) - both the original museum and Hemmings are 
located in Vermont (albeit different sides of the state).  I was hoping the 
auction would be too.

I did actually visit the museum once - this was before my MG.  I had MGs in 
my life, at some key points, growing up, but had not thought much about 
them until one day driving along the VT/NH border I came across this place 
in the middle of nowhere, in a large dutch-gambrel style barn, if I recall, 
that was an "MG museum", and I stopped in and we just looked at all the 
cars - I didn't know enough about them yet to appreciate them, other than 
just thinking "I gotta get me one of those someday".  Oddly enough, there 
was no one around - the place was empty and open.  We were there for a 
while - didn't see anyone in charge, and no other visitors either - eerie, 
but cool.

In later years I wanted to go back, but couldn't remember where it was, 
when I finally did figure out where it was (by asking on this list, I 
think) it was too late - he had already closed it down.  However, that one 
visit got me re-interested, and years later I finally got my MG, and I plan 
to keep it as long as possible.
