From the Vice President

 | Published on 10/3/2017

Well the International Healey Week in Monterey is  now history and the club had a great showing with  over 40 member cars attending and a number of  awards being taken back to So Cal. While I did not  have a great week (see Tom Spangler’s article) my BJ7  did run like a clock but we had nothing but problems  with the Bugeye all week. I understand Bill Hoyt and  Tony Trentacost had generator problems on the way  back but made it home safely; and there may be other  interesting stories that I have not heard about. Also,  sorry to hear about George McHarris’s accident and  glad to see that he is OK.


This month looks like another very busy month as we  have three official club events club events scheduled:  the Laguna Beach Classic Car Show on October 1st  and the annual San Diego British Car Day on October  8th as well as the Annual Wings Wheels and Rotors  Show on the 22nd . Unfortunately, we just heard that  this event has been cancelled as the new base  commander is reluctant to have it on his base. I  understand that the Chamber of Commerce is trying  to find a new venue for 2018.


November looks like a pretty mellow month with  only one club event scheduled other than the usual  recurring events, and that is Fireball Tim’s “Wheels  and Waves” Malibu gathering on November 19th at  The Country Mart on Cross Creek Road in Malibu.


He has assured me that he will set aside an area for  our Healey’s; so to all of the Valley guy’s who do not  usually make it to Golden Cove here is an  opportunity to drive your Healey over the Santa  Monica mountains to the beach in Malibu and show  up all those Porsche’s and Ferrari’s. Then you can  have breakfast in Malibu and/or drive up the coast.


The December Club event is the Holiday Party at the  Long Beach Shoreline Yacht Club on the 10th and  sign up for it will be on the web site shortly.
