From The Drivers Seat



 The Huntington Beach Concours, held on June 3rd, was a great success this year. We had 309 cars entered, and 52 motorcycles. We had 105 Judges to look at these cars, and 10 were VMG members. Best of all we had 10 MGs entered. Brian Keene’s 1948 Y Saloon took 1st place in the Street Class and Conrad and Laurie’s 1953 TD took 3rd place in the Street Class.

Our thanks go to those who entered cars and helped with the judging, and, also, the invaluable help that Laurie Diaz and Barbara Gallegos gave to Marie and me in the back room where the results were tabulated.  As always it was a hectic job.

Another successful event was the Scottish Games. John Seim organized our participation in the event and it was well attended. Where else can you eat haggis and watch grown men throw telephone poles.


On June 9th we had the Garage Tech Session devoted to the annual safety check of those cars traveling to GoF. The event was held at Jerry and LaVerne Felper’s home. You never know what they will find out about your car. My car had very little oil in the rear axle. This session gives you the opportunity to find out and take care of problems before they expensive problems. Or worse yet before you break down on the way to GoF.

Even if you are not planning to drive your car to GoF it’s a good idea to take advantage of the session and have your car checked out. This month we have a Garage Tech Session at Paul Simon’s house on July 7th. On July 14th we go to Bob Spellmire’s house for “Trees & Trains”, and on July 21st our 5th annual Summer Picnic. See the Octagon Topics for times and places.

We have lots to enjoy, see you there.
