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
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.
