Fellow 1100 fans (all three of us):

Yesterday, I received a copy of the 1100 ad that Mike Leckstein taped off of 
the TV and kindly sent me.  10Q!  10Q!  10Q!  It's precious!  And sure enough, 
the thing's driving around with no rear wheels and the butt end up in the air 
like an adorable MG stinkbug.  I can't imagine how they did that, but now 
that I know it can be done, I'm gonna try it with mine!  All I need now are 
five Queen's Guards or a reasonable facsimile thereof.

After the 1100 ad was a Mini ad.  It's nice to know that advertising in 
Britain is just as silly as it is here.

In a related vein, earlier today there was a message that said, in part:

'             MG INTERNATIONAL

                 INDY - 96

     This is the LARGEST MG meet in the history of North America!
Five MG Clubs have agreed to combine their annual meets into this
incredible event at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.  As of April
15th, 1996, there were 1100 MGs pre-registered for this meet which'

When I first saw this, I thought they were saying that there were going 
to be 1100's there.  I was so excited, I almost thought about going!
