Blackwood's Blackwood engine is a little sour and needs to be replaced with a BBB....

I am now officially registered for both events. The bad news is I will probably be alone this year. (You’ll have to put up with my lack of adult supervision.) The good news is I have a spare reservation at the Talley Ho for the 15th-18th that I would be happy to try to transfer to someone. Talley Ho and Highland Manor were both booked for the 13th & 14th, but the Econolodge still had rooms.

That's one I'm not sure even I would attempt.

But the good news is I have a fresh set of injectors ready to install tomorrow and then (hopefully) all will be smiles and sunshine. We'll see.

I'm looking forward to meeting more of you guys. I attended one other meet in Durham, but at that time I was just trying to learn a little about modified Mgs. I purchased a 74 BGT that Pete Mantell had converted to 3,4 V6 for the previous owner. I dove it to Bellview foe MG 2010 but was not able to attend the Indy event. I am joining the Rallye to Reno in Ocean City on June 4th so the event in Townsend will be the shakedown cruise for the 7-8000 mile trip in June. I'm taking a round about northern route back from San Francisco to NC. I've been doing some work on my car this winter with assistance from Ken Nicks in his fine facility in Jonesville, NC.

1973 MGB-GT 3.4 V6 5spd A/C completed:

front suspension serviced, new tie rod ends, gators & shocks, new floorpans welded in sealed, truck bed liner applied and interior covered in Hushmat, carpet installed, radiator and heater core serviced at radiator shop and re-installed, had to do the heater core twice since I pinched the demist cable under the rubber block the first time, LED tail light/brake/indicators and front daytime running lights installed, added third brake light, changed 90 weight oil in differential, upgraded heater fan motor to a higher cfm unit from a Fiero, new gas tank & fuel filter, new wheels and tires, new spark plugs etc.

to do:

radio, cruise control, rework exhaust system for more ground clearance, front end alignment, etc

I have not been active on this forum but I will check in more frequently, I do hang out over at the MG Exp aka lawnvett

PJ it will be good to see you again. Sounds like a nice car you have. I know that Pete does great work so it should be very reliable for you on those long trips. See you in the mountains.

Went to the Tally-Ho site, no rooms left. I guess I will be staying down the street. Is there an offical registration form for the event?
take care, Dave

How many registrations to date, Dan.

Maybe I should rephrase that.

How many paid registrations do we have for BritishV8 2011, Dan?

Unfortunately, Roger Williams had to cancel due to circumstances beyond his control. He sends his regrets. He had purchased airline tickets and made reservations, but, alas, it is not to be. He and Alex are deeply disappointed, as I'm sure we all are.

I'm waiting on a head for the truck, won't get it back for a week and a half. Hopefully that'll give me time to put it back together and get the bugs worked out. Dropped a pair of exhaust valve seats.

So other than Steve is there nobody else who can help get the Roadmaster ready? A shame really.

Ok, since I have precious little time to shake down the car my wife didn't want me to drive it -- promised her I'd trailer it there & back & just drive it while there. Up side is that gave me the opportunity to invite my dad to join me on the trip. He's in good shape but at 71yrs old & with something like 29 pins in his hip from when he shattered it a couple years ago I didn't think he'd enjoy the trip from TX in the MG. Even though he'd hinted at being interested, I hadn't invited him before. So add one a guest to the registrations Dan... I just filled out the form & paypal'd his fees (the shirt's for me though ;) ).

Rob,

Got him on the list. I think it's great that he's joining you. He won't be alone - there will be several of us " over 70" there, myself included.

I would suggest we have an oldtimer's club, but none of us would admit to actually being old.

Carl, by that standard I'm not sure my dad is even over 65... any more anyway.
