T Register Meeting – December 2020 / January 2021

17 December 2020

Register reports, December 2020 & January 2021.

The Biggest Verandah , Eden Hills

The load test of the big verandah at Mozza’s & Steph’s certainly lived up to expectations with the 50 Convid 19 compliant Register members suitably seated and spaced there abouts.
Thankyou Mozza & Steph with help from Father in law Steve for a wonderful night and capable organisation of the access around and through the tennis court wire for our special T Register cars, a bit tight but never the less manageable ( just).
Attendees totalled 50 ( strictly to the rules) , 23 Register cars which included 1 Prewar TA & 1 Y Series Saloon. The newly acquired TA by Peter & Bronwyn Micklem was a highlight to behold, the proud owners arrived in daylight but were struggling to see the fog line on the side of the road on the way home I am told. LED alert AC Pearson !

A popular segment I am told, those absent were by surnames only, messers Aiken, Gibbs, Liebrandt, Edmunds, Dallwitz, Lancasters, Lyons, Shephard, Herbert, Driver, Wyatt, Forth, Bate, Greenwood, Tamke, Glassons, Finch, Proferes.
Hopefully those on the sick list above will be surfacing soon where possible.

Milestones of some significance were bestowed upon David TD McNabb 70 years and the irrepressible Ray Finch, 80 years who had a reasonable excuse for his apology, fencing his Nairn property wore him out. Slow down Ray and check your birth certificate. Congratulations to you both.

Business of the general nature
David Bates of TD fame, clipper blue colour ( well nearly) was welcomed to his first official register meeting. Bruce Hosking in his red TC not seen for a long time was acknowledged.

TC’s & Flat Top Trucks
Seen recently two club members cars on the flat top tow trucks,# 1 Ian Buckley’s : reason blown welch plug no spare corks on board apparently.
Number two, the cream TC of Anthony Pearson emitting a very loud noise from the engine block, a case of broken crankshaft on the way to lunch. My news is that ACP.Com was trying to impress Willow through Aldgate at high revs.

Thankyou Terry Wright 007 for more exceptional photos that will be posted on to the MGCCSA webisite under the Prewar Register report.

Block emails
The system seems to be working ok although I have had a few difficult email addresses that suffered rejection due to subtle errors on my part inputting the correct data.
Spare parts
There are a number of T Series parts floating about, contact me if you are needing anything. I have had several enquiries outside the club and register for items that have been hard to get, let me know and I may be able to help.
Irving Cup
Graciously returned by Mozza , polished perfectly no award this year due to Convid-19 restrictions, thanks Mozz maybe show David Bates how Coca Cola and steel wool does a great job on the shiny parts. Original formula by Doc. Paul Dallwitz.
