OK, I am not a Moss Motors basher. I appreciate the amount of stuff they 
carry, etc. Sometimes, however, I just have to squawk.

Today I got an email from them advertising their annual upholstery sale and 
a few new items. One of the new items was an "MGB Cruise Control Kit". One 
glance confirmed that it is the same AudioVox CCS-100 kit I have on my 
Midget. I clicked the link to find some justification for their claim of 
"Engineered especially for use with HIF, HS and Zenith carbs", to find that 
they are charging over 2.5 times as much as I paid for mine, they are 
including the magnetic pulse generator which restricted mine to only working 
under 60mph (great feature!) and they have tweaked the freely downloadable 
installation instructions to show their ways of connecting the actuator 
cable to an MGB carb. Interestingly enough, their method for connecting to 
an SU carb is exactly the way I wound up doing mine... Were they watching 
me??? I also noted that they did not mention the possible need to implement 
a vacuum tank. Maybe (I doubt it) the MGB doesn't need it, but I KNOW my 
1275 does unless you are not anticipating any hills.

This kit is readily available for $90, but they are asking $249!!!

Thanks for letting me vent ;-)
