In September, the
club attended the Boots & Bonnets Car Show,
hosted by the Southern California MG Club.
It was a hot day, but still well attended.
The garage tech session was in Anaheim, on
the topic of filling the hydraulic dampers.
We could not get the caps off of the Girling
dampers, so shifted gears, and found
something else to address. Still awaiting
word from Bob Ashe-Everest, that he has a
battery, and has cleaned out his fuel lines,
before going back, and adjusting and
balancing the carburetors, in the Laguna

The Vintage MG Club of Southern California

We used to do a lot of breakfast runs.
Breakfast runs can be added to a month’s
already scheduled event, as not everyone can
make the monthly event date. It can be a
driving tour, or a rally with questions.
They are easy to put on. Step up to the
plate, and plan on putting one on.
To add to that, every Saturday (just about)
at 12:30 p.m., a group of members meet at
the Jagerhaus in Anaheim for lunch. A great
brain trust, and the greatest topics of
discussion. (other restaurant patrons have
told us so). Jerry Felper, Carl Cederstrand,
Gary Crow, Charles Lusch, and myself
generally attend. And, twice a month, at the
Olde Ship in Santa Ana, we get together for
dinner, on Mondays at 6:30 p.m.
Volunteerism is the key to an organization’s
success! Currently, we are seeking someone
to fill the position of club secretary.
Other positions could be available. As the
Star Trek crew gave way to Star Trek: The
Next Generation, the next generation of VMG
volunteers needs to come forward. Please
consider taking a board position for at
least one year. While it looks like we have
a lot going on, we can always use club
members to volunteer. Positions are opening
up on the board, and we would love to see
new faces become active there.
Rick Pullen and Dave Gaston have events,
that just need someone to host. Kaz and Judy
Bielinski are working on a driving event for
the year 2017 (2018). Rick Pullen and Dave
Gaston can help you plan a driving event.
Just ask them.
Until next month, John Seim
