Two months in a row without a tech session. That must be some kind of record. But not to worry my wannabe mechanics. Hang on to your spanners, charge up the fire extinguisher, and get ready to dive into another project.
For next month, plan on meeting at Victor Geminani’s garage in Lanikai to get his Jaguar E-Type on the road. A variety of jobs await the collective wisdom of the club including brakes, installing a new gas tank, and predictably, an ignition issue that will surely come up as soon as the key is turned.
We begin around 10:00 a.m. and break for lunch around noon. Depending on the progress, or lack of it, we either gloat in our success, or return to the garage and keep fiddling until we tire of defeat and go home, leaving poor Victor to grovel on his own.
He has promised to fire up the grill but it’s always suggested you bring a beverage of your own. Victor lives at 1237 Aalapapa Drive Kailua (Lanikai). His house is almost at the end of the loop so if you head that way, you will go past his garage on the right.
A word of caution on weekend parking. It is extremely limited, if not impossible, and the parking police are not there to help. There is some room in the yard, but heed the signs if you don’t find a spot on his property.
The Christmas Brunch will be held again at Josh’s house on Sunday, December 15th. His family home on the North Shore is the perfect beachfront venue for this event and gets us out of the city for a real road trip sort of drive.
The cost per person will be in the $15 to $20 range, but if you have been to one of these wing dings, you already know the raffle gifts can easily equal the price of admission. Mark your calendars and make sure your old car can make it that far.
As in previous years, we will plan on meeting at the Temple Valley Shopping Center and caravanning up the coast together. In keeping with the phrase “safety in numbers,” we might as travel surrounded by helpful friends and tow ropes. More details when the date gets closer.
Ford vs Ferrari
Remember the club’s last movie night? I don’t either. I’d say we are over due for another one. This time we are going to take it up a notch and plan a real outing to see the new movie, “Ford vs Ferrari”, which is to be released November 15th. It is being offered in super sized IMAX format or regular screen. Either way, even though the link to British cars is sketchy, at best, it will still be a fun movie for a bunch of car guys to experience together. Time and date to follow on this as well.
It’s a Wheel Deal
Here is another good deal for someone out there. Member Terry Tusher has an offer worth looking at.
Contact him directly if you are interested: 808-225-2805
I have a deal for you if you own a TR2-4A, MGA, MGB, MGC, Morgan 4/+4, or Austin Healy BN1 – BJ8!
The car they were purchased for, unfortunately, is none of the above and the wheel offset is wrong.
For Sale: 5 new MWS silver painted, 72-spoke, Heavy Duty, 5×15, wire wheels (Moss Motors #454-665).
My error is your good luck!
My cost: $300/each + shipping. Make me an offer I can’t refuse.
The next club meeting will be Tuesday, November 12th at 6:00 p.m. at Gordon Biersch, Aloha Tower Market Place.
That’s all I have for now. Be sure to give Terry a call about his rims, mark your calendars for the Saturday, November 9th Tech Session, the Christmas Brunch on December 15th, and the next membership meeting on the 12th.
