John Twist's MG Tech Zoom
Monday, 08 August 2022, 7:00pm EST
First and foremost:
Support the Ukrainian people in their time of need!

Join over 100 MG enthusiasts in our next two-hour MG Technical Zoom, Monday, 08 August 2022, at 7:00 pm EST.

The techniques for fitting the eight Lift-the-Dot studs on the MGB will open our tech discussion. Following that brief instruction we will move into our "Question and Answer" format. You can pose a question about any MG model, any MG subject in the chat section.. John Twist will answer / comment on your question and others on the Zoom call will often choose to comment about their experience.

In celebration of the "eights" we held a Summer Party 14 years ago at Kirk Park on Lake Michigan, the site of our first Summer Party in 1977. We left the Hilton Parking Lot at 08:08:08 on 08 Aug 2008. It was my late wife Caroline's last summer party.

Nearly 100 MGs participated.

Pictured is John Twist talking to Marla Zebarah, long time member of the Detroit Windsor MGCC and to Jeremy Holdsworth, co-organizer of the most recent NAMGBR MG2022 in Peterborough, Ontario. Bruce Wyckoff has his back to the camera.
