>53 Riley's like this.  I am a Hyundai techician by profession and
occiaisonally have a servicible LKC (little Korean car) for sale.  A friend
of mine called  to inquire on belalf of a friend of his if I currently had
such a LKC.  Turns out that I did.  In a couple of weeks he called again and
said that his buddy had something that he might want to trade,  was I
interested in a 74 MGB??  I told him that if I was interested I was unaware
of this interest but to call anyway.  One thing led to another and here I am
with a LBC.  Have really enjoyed it (my first car was a 1960 Morris Minor)
and lo, the wife likes it too.  I have decided that the car picked me rather
than the other way round.  So, I am relearning automotive technology and
using some wrenches that haven't been out of the tool box in years.
Now....if I could just find the computer in this thing I think that I could
dial it in just fine.
