Chicagoland MG Club: Driveline July 2017
Past Event

books The Library Muse

A long time ago in a world far, far away……..well, maybe not that long ago or far away…… a swap meet in Wheaton, Jim Michel presented the club with nine books from his collection. In April, we talked about one of the books, A-Antics Tech Tips. Here’s a list of the rest of the books, but without my usual riveting reviews:
Fuel Systems and Controls. 2 volumes, text books, 1988 (too modern for an MG?)
MG Midget/Sprite Workshop Manual. Haynes, 1982
Complete Official MG Midget 1500. workshop manual, Robert Bentley, 1980
MGB and MGB GT Problems and How to Fix Them. Roger Williams, 2003, (at 175 pages this book just ain’t big enough)
Jaguar, The Complete Illustrated History. Phillip Porter, 1995
How to Repair and Restore Bodywork. David Jacobs, 1991
Austin Healey 100/6 & 3000. John Wheatley, 1990

These books will be available for you to review at the next monthly meeting. And if you want any books or materials from the library, let me know a day or two before the meeting via E-Mail and I’ll bring it in.

MG in Cuba
By Don Kreienbrink

We just got back from Cuba and found someone using this late-model MG for a taxi sorry we didn't use it we went with the 1960 Cadillac. These old taxis are about the only-free enterprise allowed on the island. We had a driver for a good part of the day and his fare for several hours was more than most people make an entire month. Two-seater sports cars don't have much of a value since the money is in taxiing a passenger, so you didn't see any Sports cars. If you do find a 2 seater chances are the engine was replaced with a diesel forklift engine.
