John & Becky live just south of Bellingham WA and are the new owners of the Magnette recently for sale in Portland OR.  Once again, we have new members courtesy of Dave Looy's recruiting skills and efforts.  Let's congratulate him along with John and Becky.
> And to John & Becky, I am forwarding all the profile info you sent on to Mike Jacobsen, who is our Keeper Of The Roster. Mike updates the roster twice a year and perhaps he can remind us when the next revision is coming out.  You'll find a good bit of humorous OT traffic on our list as we kid each-other a lot, but you'll also find more hard-core Magnette knowledge here than any other single source in the world.  You'll also find a lot of generous guys who will help you locate the most incredibly obscure of parts. Also, be assured that we operate by the principle that there are NO dumb questions.  There are some dumb answers which we love to provide with great consistency!  So I hope you'll feel free to tell us all about your car and to ask any questions that come up along the way.  
> With the tip of my Octagonal sword, I now declare you official members of the Z Magnette Group of North America, with all the privileges and amusement attached thereto.  Please know that we have no dues, no constitution, no bylaws, no officers, no treasury - nuthin' ! But we are an official special interest group within NAMGAR - the North American MGA Register, and it is at the annual NAMGAR Get -Togethers (GTs) that you will find as many of us as can attend. The next one is GT39 in Ottawa in 2014: http://www.namgar.com/events/calendar_details/gt-39_ottawa_canada/ and if you can handle the distance, the Vancouver chapter is sponsoring a cross-country "Cruise to the Capital: http://www.namgar.com/events/calendar_details/cruise_to_the_capital/  This all happens in July next year. A few years ago, NAMGAR asked me to be their contact person within ZMG, and most of the membership seemed to thing that meant I was The Guy. And that is the story of how Allen got his sorta leadership role if we actually had one. Occasionally I even call myself Chairman when a title is required. It's good for impressing friends at cocktail parties, etc...
> Do note that we do NOT require membership in NAMGAR and a good deal of our members do not belong.  But NAMGAR gives us full access to a substantial club network, and a terrific slick-paper bimonthly magazine - MGA! - in which our contributions are most welcome.  And there's a huge piece about Magnettes in the current issue (if I do say so myself...) which you will not want to miss.  But again, this is totally at your option.
