Quench Your Thirst

No, this is not about Bass, Guinness or even Old Speckled Hen. It is about knowledge.

Have you ever wondered, as your MG coasted to the side of the road, exactly what you would do next? Or, have you ever wondered if there is an easier way to diagnose a miss in the engine? Or, exactly how much should you worry about a wheel bearing running out on a long trip, and can you prevent the ensuing roadside hassle? Or, the brakes seem weaker in the spring after the winter's storage - what do you need to do?

There are many questions with even as simple a machine as an MGB. You can spend a lifetime learning some of the answers to your questions. Or you can take a short cut: you can learn from someone who has already spent a lifetime thinking about all the questions you could possibly ask. That person is none other than Mr. John H. Twist of University Motors LTD, Ada, Michigan.

He has the perfect seminar for you to quench your thirst for knowledge about tuning, lubricating and repairing your MG. It is the MG Mechanical Seminar on Friday through Sunday, February 3, 4, 5, 2006. And this unequaled educational opportunity includes a sumptuous dinner on Saturday evening (gentlemen- bring your coats and ties, ladies - evening wear is quite acceptable). If you have already taken this course, you are most likely on the mailing list for the other seven courses provided to graduates of the Mechanical Seminar in the 2006 course offerings. If not, phone 616-682-0800 for a brochure.

And the cost? About the same as one six-pack of malt beverage a week for 2006. And, unlike the malt beverage, the knowledge will be yours for the rest of your life and will not return to the ecosystem in a few hours.

Last chance for camping at Road America - If you want to camp with the group at Plymouth Rock for the BRIC on Friday July 14 and Saturday July 15, please let us know by early January 2006.
