Morning greeting as Paul and Jan were off to the Toy Run

Letter to the British Car Council:

British Car Council of Canada

Dear Friends,

Once again it was a privilege and joy for us to join with you out at Country Heritage Park for your annual car run and toy drive.

On behalf of the Salvation Army in Georgetown, I would like to take the opportunity to say thank you for your very kind donation of new toys to our Family Emergency Services Christmas Assistance Program. We truly appreciate your partnering with us in this way and getting into the "Christmas Spirit" so early in the season.

Donations such as these make it possible for us to serve our community and provide for those who are hurting and in need. These items will be given to children in need in our community of Georgetown this Christmas.

Last year in Georgetown we were able to help approximately 140 families at Christmas time, as well as helping families throughout the year with food, clothing, emergency shelter etc.

We would also like to ask that you relay our thanks to all of the other groups and individuals that participated and supported this years event.

Once again thank you and God Bless,


Darrell Jackson
Corps Officer - GCC

Redefining "new" and "car" ...

Excerpted from Alan Brand's Grey Brits Blog:

A very nice looking low mileage 1960 Morris Minor L.C.V. for sale in Ottawa, ON...unfortunately it needs a paint job.

professionaly [sic] painted with the current company logo here in Ottawa (Note: logo will have to be removed once sold)

11 October, 2014: More pictures, including some not in the ad, plus a quote from the seller

In our opinion, mechanically, the Morris is in excellent condition.

16 October, 2014: Update... itís no longer for sale... I pick it up next week!

Congratulations Alan!!

Are You Ready
To Get Muddy!

Back in the UK, there seems to be no end to the shows, trials and rallies. I have a feeling trials and rallies only end in December. And only because the cars need washing and repair for the events starting in February or March.

This last weekend the Vintage Sports Car Club held their 75 th Annual Welsh Trial. As you look at these pictures have Wagner's Flight of the Valkyries going through your head.

WARNING: These pictures, from the VCC, depict dirty, muddy cars and happy, muddy people!

The track curves off right, while the course goes straight up the hill.

Every car requires "Bouncers". I guess this is part of the job

Help Save These Magazines

Scott Morris rescued boxes of Autosport magazine from a trip to the dump. The collection of weekly magazine dates from 1977 to 2001. The collection is not complete but it is a damn good start. By the way they are free gratis!
