Inland Empire Farmer Boys - 12/4



Greetings Group, Our December Farmer Boys event was quite chilly. It was also quite foggy. A real "Mad dogs and Englishmen" type of morning. So, who dared to drive their British classic cars? Well, Allan Perry of course, because, after all, he is English. He was joined by Bill Wilkman in his MGA and Randy Clary in his Jensen Healey because, they just may be the mad dogs. Or just crazy? Everyone stood in the foggy parking lot with hot coffee in hand. John and Marisue Meza at least brought a Healey part to show the group and inquire about the installation. It's a new Lockheed brake servo to replace the missing original unit in their '65 BJ8. I don't think we were much help and there were no BJ8's present to look at. I extended an offer to him to come to my shop and look at my '64 BJ8. He did and that did help.

 

Bill Wilkman also brought a "What the heck is it". See the picture. Do you know what it is? Allan Perry Pigured it out but most were stumped. The tool is used to straighten brake line.

 

New line generally comes in a coil. Thanks Bill.

 

Those in Classics: Allan Perry - '60 AH BN7 modiPied, Bill Wilkman - '60 MGA, Randy Clary - '73 Jensen Healey Those in future classics: Jimmie Davis - '04 Merc., Ron and Sandy Davies - '13 Miata, Larry Reynolds - InPinity G37-S, Jim Cregg - '20 Genesis G70 Sport, Richard Priebe - '21 Genesis G80 Sport, John and Marisue Meza – Audi, Lee Blackmore - Freelance car mechanic friend of Randy Clary.

 

I'd also like to mention for those that attended the March ARB Veterans show that Bill Wilkman went home heavier after receiving the People Choice Award for his '51 Austin A40 Sports. Congratulations Bill! We will meet again in January, but since New Year’s Day is the Pirst Saturday it will be on the 8th instead. I look forward to seeing you if you can make it.

 

Cheers
