What a list! With 5 people at each corner of the car we should be done in about 15 minutes. I think I may just slip slowly to the back of the crowd and become the automatic beer dispenser guy. I'll

I checked it out and it looks like the "Tudor" is actually an Austin A35 just like mine! A Canadian export LHD in pretty fair condition. Frank, is this the one you've been looking for? Glen Byrns

Don't buy any more beer than you need to get to tomorrow night. When I went to pick up the tap, my friend said 5 gallons wasn't enough for 22 people, so he forced another 5 gallons of stout on me. I

Like Larry said, I'll look forward to the next one. Most people wouldn't consider 95 deg. temps, sticky humidity and 12 hour days of grease and knuckle-busting to be fun. Their loss. I had a blast an

One thing I won't forget was the engine installation. Since the gasket set available to us was for a Mini, there was no backplate gasket and the engine work was undone for the lack of it. Frst thing

The Morris woody aquited itself so well on this recent trip (900 miles!) that I decided that an AC unit wouldn't overtax the cooling system. Has anyone got any experience with an aftermarket AC kit?

When I returned, I was gutsy enough to take 5 over the Grapevine, but NOT to go all the way up 5. As you say, too hot, too empty of rooms and food. The old route (Rt.99) parallels it at the western f

Since I had put the mild 1275 into the Austin, it hadn't really acted like what I expected to be. It tended to get pretty hot when run on the freeway and at red lights. It over-ran and occasionally m
