Okay, a month has passed and I am slowly getting accustomed to the duties of being your Vice President.
I’m assuming everyone has had a great time attending the multitude of events on the calendar and/or are busily getting their Healey’s ready for the Monterey trip. But there are still events to be attended between now and the International Gathering and many more right after it. As you can read in other articles it has been an eventful month for Bugeye’s with the adventure down to North San Diego county and Tom Spangler’s continuing clutch problems and then getting rear ended last weekend leaving from Golden Cove.
As for me, all is well that ends well, I’m taking the opportunity to install a 5-speed in the Black Bugeye since I had to pull the motor to make repairs.
This month we have one official club event other than Monterey; it is the English Motors at Fairbrook on September 24th and hopefully it will not be as hot as it was last year. It is a fun event down in some beautiful horse country and we need a host for the show now that Tom Spangler is out of commission for a while, so contact me if you can volunteer to be the host. It entails coordinating the group for the show, arranging for us to park together, taking attendance and then writing a short article for the newsletter.
October looks like another very busy month with three club events: the Laguna Beach Classic Car Show on October 1st, the annual San Diego British Car Day with a date to be determined as well as the Annual Wings, Wheels and Rotors Show in Los Alamitos.
These are in addition to the usual recurring gatherings.
I am looking for a November club event so if anyone knows of a great event that they feel would be a great time and fit for our Healey’s let me know.
I’ll see everyone in Monterey and make sure you all have your Rocker Cover racers ready and have a safe drive up to Monterey. It’s still a bummer that we cannot follow Highway 1 all the way up to Monterey!
