Today I am meeting the guys from British Motors, Kelowna B.C., at a
truckstop in Yakima WA to swap US dollars for old British steel (and
aluminum).  My BGT has an excellent transmission, but as long as the
engine and tranny were out I thought what the heck, I NEED OVERDRIVE.
British Motors were kind enough to bring an O/D tranny with them on
their way to So. California.  You wondered where all the best rust-free
cars were going?  North to Canada!  So this week I get to strap a new
toy to the almost completed engine rebuild.  Maybe I'll have the car on
the road by this weekend and then I can actually drive an MG. I'll be
the one doing 70 MPH relatively effortlessly.  Now... about that air
conditioning Don... it's starting to get hot around here...
