Here's another picture of the Roadmaster - a 1968 MGB/GT with a Buick 455 big block and other spurious upgrades.

See it in person - and meet BritishV8 moderator, Curtis Jacobson, at The Mitty!

Well, I'm packing right now for the Mitty. My flight leaves early tomorrow morning.

Are any of you guys coming? Speak up now!


The Roadmaster and I will be there all four days. I'm registered as "Crew" for Craig and Derek Chima, but I'll actually be camping in the paddock each night down the row from them... with MGB GT V8 racer Jerry Richards. I think the car show that's at and around the Classic Motorsports tent is really only Saturday (maybe Sunday too?) One benefit of the Crew pass is that it means I'll be able to park the Roadmaster in the paddock when the car show isn't going on, keep an eye on it at night, etc., etc. - and besides, at a vintage race the paddock is the best place for spectators to be all weekend. Look for us there!


Just for reference... in the paddock, Roadmaster is likely to be parked near these beasts:

(and that white trailer in the background... that's my room.)

Sounds really great Curtis. A friend of mine who has helped out some on the project thought it'd be a good idea for you to invite the editors of some British car magazines in for a show-n-tell and a ride. Is that something that Rick could help out with, or are we too late?

I'd certainly enjoy doing so... but I'm not sure who those editors might be. What magazines? Tim from Classic Motorsports, of course. I think Moss Motors publishes a free magazine called British Motoring. Who else?

Curtis, I love the Mitty! What a great venue for the Roadmaster. Are you going to take it around the track?

They have embraced hot rods now, so seems like a fit ? Good Luck, roverman.
