WOW! It’s November already! Where did the time go? Well, for me it was a very full driving season – and only a few ‘minor’ car problems to address during the ‘off-season’. Looking back, we did spend a number of weekends on-the-road with our MG family – great times!

Now I suspect most of us are thinking about car tune-down and storage. A few years ago I learned the hard way that our vintage cars don’t like sitting out in the elements for the winter months. There are only a few more driving events before we can expect the snow to fly (did I say that?). So start thinking on where your car will spend the winter. In preparation, check out the Fall Tune-Down & Chili Party at Dave Bralich’s house.

For you hearty souls, Cruise the Rock on Thanksgiving Day has been a tradition for quite some time for this club. This event may close our 2013 driving season, but there are still many events planned for the club members. Come share your skills and time with those less fortunate than you by participating in the scheduled P.A.D.S. Oil Change Day. More information inside.

Check out these and all the upcoming events and activities. See you on the road...
