meetings

route66videoNote location change!  Our annual movie night on September 22 has moved back to our regular Montrose location this year.  The presentation will be part one of a two-part program on Route 66, a road that has captured the imagination of generations, both home and abroad.  In this video, you will travel the “Mother Road” with noted author and highway historian Michael Wallis as he revisits the tourist spots and quaint motels, secret corners and little towns made famous by his popular book.

Thanks to David Reid and Terry Schuller for a fascinating look at the technology and methods of underwater photography!


events

Fremont-flagOur next event on September 12 takes us to the Gene Autry Museum for a special exhibit on the Civil War in the Western states.  “Empire and Liberty” is the first major museum exhibition to examine the American Civil War from the vantage point of Westward expansion.  Explore an array of more than 200 artifacts, including Texas slave sale documents, Andrés Pico’s war drum, the battle flag carried by soldiers of the California Hundred, a Buffalo Soldier’s revolver, and Cherokee General Stand Watie’s bowie knife. This exhibition shows how the Civil War was more than a clash between the North and South; it was part of a history of how America would expand.

After the exhibit we will enjoy lunch (of course!), and afterward for those interested there will be a showing of a Civil War movie starring Errol Flynn.  The film is free with your museum admission.  Look for a flyer in the mail with details on meeting time and location, etc.

August event recap: Five TCs and 18 members and guests took part in our tour of the Adolfo Camarillo House in August. TCs were driven by Loe, Buckeridge, Simmons, Einhorn and Crandall.

meetings

 mt-wilson-truckAt our next monthly meeting on May 26, our special guest is Mike Simmons, president of Astronomers Without Borders and founder of the Mount Wilson Observatory Association.  Mike has given talks to numerous scientific organizations around the world, and this May will be giving our club a presentation on the rich history of the Mount Wilson Observatory which spans well over a century.  His talk will include a slideshow of historic images, showing turn of the century vehicles and machines, how an observatory came to a 5700-foot mountaintop in 1904, and the many famous faces like Einstein and Hubble who made important scientific discoveries while working at Mount Wilson.

This is a fascinating presentation and is an excellent primer for our June 6th tour to the observatory itself.  Whether or not you will attend the tour, you won’t want to miss this program!

TCMG Loses Two Of Our Cherished Members

Stan Roman, January 2015

Earlier this month we lost a well known and beloved member, Stan Roman. Stan and Anita joined TC Motoring Guild way back in 1969 and have been active members for much of the time since. Even after they sold their TC due to health issues, the Romans remained active, participating in many of our events and meetings year after year. The accompanying photo shows the Romans at our Halloween Party several years ago.

Services for Stan were held on January 9. Fifteen TCMG’ers were present along with a pair of TCs in the procession. To send cards or letters of sympathy, see the club membership directory for the Roman’s mailing address. The January newsletter will feature more about Stan and his time in the club.

Phil Marino, December 2014

It is our sad duty to announce the passing of Phil Marino, a long-time TCMG member and devoted MG TC enthusiast. Phil was a talented machinist whose components are running in many of our cars today. He was a pioneer in the modern, unbreakable axles that we all enjoy as well as the creator of countless other parts that make our lives easier including spin-on oil filter adapters, brass master cylinders and much, much more. As a 30-year member of the TC Motoring Guild, he became a friend and mentor to many TC owners and he will be missed by each and every one.

Services for Phil were held on December 29th. Several TCs were present, many with Phil’s parts installed, and they all caravaned together from the service in his honor. Look to the January newsletter for more about Phil Marino and the people he befriended in his journeys.


meetings

TCMG Loses Two Of Our Cherished Members

Stan Roman, January 2015

Earlier this month we lost a well known and beloved member, Stan Roman.  Stan and Anita joined TC Motoring Guild way back in 1969 and have been active members for much of the time since.  Even after they sold their TC due to health issues, the Romans remained active, participating in many of our events and meetings year after year.  The accompanying photo shows the Romans at our Halloween Party several years ago.

Services for Stan were held on January 9.  Fifteen TCMG’ers were present along with a pair of TCs in the procession.  To send cards or letters of sympathy, see the club membership directory for the Roman’s mailing address.  The January newsletter will feature more about Stan and his time in the club.

Phil Marino, December 2014

It is our sad duty to announce the passing of Phil Marino, a long-time TCMG member and devoted MG TC enthusiast. Phil was a talented machinist whose components are running in many of our cars today.  He was a pioneer in the modern, unbreakable axles that we all enjoy as well as the creator of countless other parts that make our lives easier including spin-on oil filter adapters, brass master cylinders and much, much more. As a 30-year member of the TC Motoring Guild, he became a friend and mentor to many TC owners and he will be missed by each and every one.

Services for Phil were held on December 29th.  Several TCs were present, many with Phil’s parts installed, and they all caravaned together from the service in his honor.  Look to the January newsletter for more about Phil Marino and the people he befriended in his journeys.


meetings

mgtf-adOur next meeting will be held on January 27 at our usual Montrose location. A video detailing the history of post-war MGs will be shown, including the TC through TF, MGA and racing efforts. Also meet the new 2015 TCMG executive council! Doors open at 7:30 PM. For more meeting and event information, visit the Calendar Page.

For more information, see the Calendar Page or the flyer in our January / February newsletter.

Old TC Motoring Guild Film Discovered

TCMG Member Jim Crandall has just finished re-editing a 16mm film made by club members back in 1972. Now set to music and with added credits identifying the players, this is a wonderful look into the past of not only our club but Southern California’s car scene as well. The video was screened at our August meeting in San Diego during GoF West, but for those who missed it we present the video here. You can also watch it on You Tube.
