December 20, 2023 – January 15, 2024: DIY Driving Tour

Slip on a warm coat and head out for the TCMG Winter DIY Tour! Our first tour for 2024 tasks you with finding “Holiday Lights” to photograph your TC with. Which holiday the lights are for doesn’t matter, so long as you can explain yourself if you’ve stretched the rules.

Drive at least 5 miles during your tour to receive one point toward this year’s (2024) Sargent Award. Photo submissions are due by January 15th and should be sent to Joyce Edgar for inclusion in our January Meeting on the 23rd.

Have another TCMG member in your area? Team up and get a group photo! Most important as always is, have fun!

The evening’s program will involve our members sharing their three favorite MG related items. Choose up to three things that aren’t bolted to your car. It could be the first MG key chain you ever got, a perfect condition period shop manual, a first edition “The Red Car”, the cross flow head you bought, installed, then realized it was porous and removed it, the T shirt from your first GOF, a copy of the speeding ticket you got in your TC (an exceedingly rare item), MG models, literature, etc. Items don’t have to be MG-centric, but should be related, like Lucas, SU, etc.

If you have photos to show and aren’t familiar with screen sharing on Zoom, send your photos to Joyce Edgar by February 26th and she will display them for you at the meeting.

August (Date TBA): Garret Hanes Restoration Shop and TC Unveiling

NOTE: This is an RSVP event!

Our July tour takes us to the restoration shop of Garret Hanes where Kregg Hunsberger’s ground-up restored TC will be unveiled.  This is the TC Kregg’s father built into a V8 racer back in 1950, and today it stands as one of the few surviving “hot rod TCs” of that era. Garret’s personal TC can be seen in his shop in the accompanying photo.

The restoration facility caters to high end exotics, focusing on original Cobras and other similar classics. Old world skills are practiced including metal shaping and custom aluminum work. Garret will give participants a tour of his facility and the cars being stored, maintained and rebuilt there. Lunch will be held on site in the shop’s lounge area.
