Super proud of everyone for all of the hard work and long days to make this deadline! It was an honor to be asked to have this car in the prestigious show today and everyone stepped up to make it happen. Even yesterday fixing a couple of last minute issues, doing the final buff and Brad making it all look perfect until 5:00am this morning. The car showed very well and received positive reviews.

The elves have been busy at the shop. This is a 1967 Sunbeam Tiger Mark 2. One of about 500 originally made. We've been honored to work on this car. What started as a little rust repair became almost a full restoration at the request of the owner. Come see it in the Concourse d'Elegance at Aunt Park one week from today June 13th.

This is a one family car. The driver/owner’s father bought it in 1958. It was driven until 1968 when he started taking it apart for some reason. He has since passed and it was inherited by the daughter. We went through things, replaced all of the brake lines, the harness, did some head work, and 100 other odd jobs. This is her taking it home and her first time ever driving the car.

It's always nice to get a car back from being dipped. Often you find that things are much worse than expected and that there was previous poor work or damage you didn't know about. This time, it's better than expected! Luckily, most of the bad panels are ones we have already started producing in house and have on the shelf.

We have been slowed by this virus, but are still getting a little done. There are two engines at machine shops and a Healey at the dippers. We are taking this time to clean up the shop and get some equipment that we've purchased used, back to functional. Stay safe, but busy everyone.

For those of you not on our email list... This year The Winner's Circle is celebrating their 50th year of having a store front!!! as part of the celebration, we will be featuring a different product the is either designed by The Winner's Circle, or is still in production because of The Winner's Circle.
This month's feature is our double bearing hubs. DBH 600. We have been selling these for 40 years now. We originally carried them from the designers of them. When they stopped making them, we bought the blueprints and began making them ourselves. We also made some upgrades over the years such as the circlip that comes in ours requiring a groove to be machined in the hub. The originals were also bare metal. To celebrate this product, for the month of February, DBH-600 is $25 off.

This beauty left today. We’ve had it here for a little bit and luckily one of the guys here had previously worked at another restoration shop and worked on a couple of these before. This is a 1941 caddy.

I thought it was kind of a cool shot with a few of the projects lined up. Two of these are about to leave. Ones in the paint process, another almost ready for paint, and the two in the very back have just been dipped and are ready for metal work.

The Ohio Valley Austin Healey Club had it's "lady's day" Gymkhana. The weather reporters warned about the heat, but we still had three lady drivers for the event and 5 guys. The few brave souls willing to come out and spend a few hours on the blacktop when staying indoors was advised had a great time. My yellow Bugeye was driven to the event on the highway and between Nancy and I, ran the course 12 times. We then had to get ice cream on the way home.

We cleaned out and promptly filled this corner of the shop last week.

This one came to us with the owner just wanting us to put in a 5-speed, but he kept adding work as we worked. It's now getting prepped for a whole repaint. It started as a very nice car and should end up gorgeous.

Went up to Jule Enterprise for a day to pick up a frame and talk some business with Martin. We are the only shop that has been trained by Martin to do the "frame swap" on big Healeys. While we were there we had to take a look at some of his personal projects....

Some cars fight the whole way. The calipers had previously been rebuilt by another shop. After a test drive, we discover that assuming things are good because they look good is a no no. The brakes worked, but the pistons got stuck out. After disassembly we found that they had old fluid that had corroded the pistons badly. Somehow trying to save the customer money always seems to backfire.

Another successful rebuild. We also got the lights working. The customer is thrilled.

This is from a few weeks ago, but this tiger is coming along. It’s completely stripped to bare metal now and the bottom is being coated.

This project started a couple of weeks ago. We are honored to be removing all the rusty metal on this tiger.

We've been out on the road the last couple weeks doing what we believe all of you should do, drive your old cars. We had planned to try to drive my 61 bugeye from Cincinnati to Niagara Falls, Montreal, Bangor Maine, bar harbor, saunderstown Rhode Island, new canaan Connecticut, roanoke Virginia, Nashville, Memphis, Dallas, and finally Waco Texas for the Austin healey conclave. We have had some issues, but are now in Nashville awaiting the Cincinnati group that didn't think Maine was on the way to Texas. I'll post more later as to the troubles which have made this adventure a better story.
