TCMG Member Bill Risser Passes

It is a sad duty to report the passing of TCMG member Bill Risser.  He and his good friend and neighbor Charlie Duvall have been members since 2007.  Bill owned his beautiful 1948 MG TC since 1972.

pebblebeach-adOur next monthly meeting is on February 23rd at the usual Montrose location.  The program is Movie Night, where members will be showing a one-hour presentation of early photos and stories from the Pebble Beach Road Races.  We will hear quips about the races from TCMG member Bob Koons, who races TCs and presently owns one of the cars that ran in the first race at Pebble Beach.  Listen to interviews from the men who were there, and see the likes of Al Moss, Carroll Shelby, Phil Hill and Stirling Moss racing through the trees. See TCs pushing the corners,  glimpses of the Flying Shingle plus many other fabulous race cars of the past in action.  A truly wonderful presentation you are sure to enjoy!

Thanks to Curt Sorensen for putting on this year’s Puzzle Night. It was a very challenging competition, with the 4-person team of Richard & Sandra Loe and Steve & Linda Simmons coming through victorious.

Malmut Museum

Join us on Saturday, March 19 for a trip to Mike Malmut’s Vintage Car Museum in Newbury Park. The museum is a private collection featuring an eclectic mix of vintage cars including a large number of micro cars and early air-cooled Porsches and VWs. There are also many American, British, French, German and Italian vehicles on display in addition to vintage gas pumps, televisions and radios, jukeboxes and more.Malmut Museum

Our day starts in Malibu with breakfast and an incredible scenic drive through the Santa Monica Mountains and quiet country back roads, terminating at the museum.  Lunch will follow the event at a nearby restaurant.  This is an event not to be missed!  Watch for a flyer in the mail with details on meeting time and location, as well as an ad in the March newsletter.

Lame Duk Kup Recap: Congratulations to Richard and Sandra Loe for winning the 2016 Lame Duk Kup Rallye!  It was a fierce competition followed by the traditional attempts to cheat one’s way to victory during scoring.  There were no losers however, as the roads were outstanding and the weather perfect.
