As we start a New Year, we are all looking forward to new events and activities with the BCCMC. This year I am planning to have at least five tech-sessions, one every other month in which we can get together, in a social setting, and learn more about the care and repair of our little British cars. Upcoming sessions will include our yearly spring tune-up and oil change, paint restoration and detailing and a tour of a machine shop where we will discuss the finer points of engine rebuilding.
One of the appealing things about our LBC’s is that they are relatively simple to repair and maintain. With some good resource material and support from our club members, we can tackle many of the restoration and maintenance tasks ourselves. Over the years, repair shops, able or willing to work on our classic cars, are becoming more difficult to find. As we learn to service our own cars, we will gain confidence and have the knowledge that the job will be done correctly and be completed in a timely manner.
I am always looking for people to host tech sessions. Almost anyone can host a tech session and one of the benefits is having free work done on your car. Free work, however, is not the purpose of a tech session. Tech sessions are intended to be a teaching forum and build unity and camaraderie within our club.
