Cliff Lemieux Completes Restoration

Cliff LemieuxOn the evening of May 28, our members discovered a new TC parked in front of our meeting room.  It was the freshly restored TC of Cliff Lemieux out for its first TCMG gathering.  Cliff and friend / mechanic Bob drove the TC 100 miles round trip entirely on side roads to attend.  Well done Cliff and Bob!



Our next monthly meeting will be held on July 23 at the usual Studio City location.  Our presenter for the evening is TCMG member Cliff Lemieux, who will be giving us a presentation on the restoration of his long-owned TC 6373.
