It is a quiet time of year, not a lot is happening. My MGB is still under its cover in the garage with a strip heater under the sump and an intelligent conditioner/charger attached to the battery. There are signs this week that, for the moment at least, the gales and horizontal rain have abated so I might be tempted to lift the cover and see about waking JCP up.
John Watson has actually been active and sent the following as a result of a Register presence at Stoneleigh.
For the second year, the MGB Register took a stand space in Hall 3 at the MG and Triumph Spares day in February at Stoneleigh. We took a convoy of Bs up the M40 on very sunny Saturday afternoon.
On arrival we positioned Andrew Vigor’s roadster and the Marathon B on the stand. We then took Geoff
Edwards and Neil Hyett’s B GTs to the local Premier Inn where, after a couple of beers and dinner, we had sorted out all the world problems.
The following morning we drove in heavy rain back to the show ground to add the GTs to our display in a very cold Hall 3. As with all these events, you spend so much time talking to many MG friends from around the World. We had a great discussion with a Peter who keeps a register of MGBs in Switzerland. We also welcomed a group from the Bridgend MGOC who had made a considerable donation to the restoration of the Marathon MGB. They were so pleased to see the transformed car and had a group photograph around the B. We would like to thank everyone who took the time to visit us at Stoneleigh.
