We had our annual open house and tech session yesterday and it was standing room only. Rented 100 chairs and there was 30 people standing. We exceeded the capacity of the building. What a fun time, served lunch to everyone and celebrated George Swangers birthday with a small cake. Went over maintenance issues and went through the show and tell box. Interesting stuff comes out of that box for sure. I wanted to thank my crew and all that made the trip to come visit us.

Here are a few good examples of what ethanol fuel can do to your rubber fuel connectors. This is from lack of simple maintenance. I believe the short piece of fuel line was original to the car. Still not bad after 45 years but you have to be aware that these problems could be under your car. So please take time to check and replace standard fuel hose with fuel injection hose. Your car will thank you.

We wanted to wish everyone a safe and prosperous new year. Not British related but we do give back to the community, here our ambulance was struck by a deer so we hung a new fender, door and painted it so we could get it back in service. Then the jeep is one of our brush units, it needed some TLC and plumbing work. Got to take care of our first responders.

I thought this was worth a share, we find some interesting things while working on cars. It still surprises though and here are 2 examples. We found spent shell casings while working on an old military G Wagon and part of a timing chain tensioner inside an oil pump. You just never know.

For those of you who knew Mike Cook I thought I would share a few pictures of Mike at some of our early tech sessions. Mike recently passed away but left a legacy in his wake. First picture is Mike on the right with John Jennings. Second picture is Mike on the right followed by Bill DeWar, Mike Wolf and John Krause. Thanks Mike for all the memories.

Just a few random pics of the week. One is the reflection off a newly painted TR4. And some customers are sourcing tops on line, not sure where but this is the second top this month that we had to put in traction. Someone had already started to install this but started in the wrong way. Don't think we will save this one.

Working on a Stag yesterday and found out why the power windows were not working. Some one removed the circuit breaker and replaced it with a cotter pin. The cotter pin came in contact with a ground and let some of the smoke out of the wires.

Well I certainly wanted to thank everyone that braved the weather yesterday to come to our open house. We had 56 in attendance and it was great to see some new faces. We really enjoy everyone's efforts from Libby and Julie serving the food, Frank making the hot dogs, Brian and Josh handling the beverages, Shane and Tom answering questions , Mike doing most of the talking. And especially all our great customers, which with out them none of this would not be possible. Plus Beth made it back from NYC safely.

Here's an Jag XK120, made between 1948 and 1954. The XK120 followed the SS100 which ceased production in 1940. This one needs some TLC, but should be a fun project.

Rebuilding a trans for a customer and found the strangest thing in the bottom of the case. Funny thing is the broken drill bit didn't cause the failure. It was the rear counter shaft bearing disintegrating that caused the failure.
