Where do all lbc owners eventually go?--lbc repair shops and parts stores! 
The San Diego MG Club (which is _not_ really a club to emulate) puts copies 
of our newsletter on the front desk of all shops that repair and sell parts 
for lbc's.  We also acquire new suckers, er, members at Britcar and classic 
car shows.  This weekend is the "Big Three" swapmeet at the San Diego Jack 
Murphy Stadium and our club has purchased a seller's spot where we'll have 
a display of members' cars (maybe even an MG 1100!) and a table with info 
about the club.  I'll be manning, er, personing our booth Saturday morning, 
so if anyone on the list is going to be there, stop and say "Hi!"

Can't help you there.
