Woooot!  Terrific!  Hope mine lasts close to that.

>>My experience with mid-60's MGs makes me very wary ... 

Heh.  I used to go to lunch with a fellow in his MGB-GT.  *ALL* of the
holding the bucket seats in had rusted completely through.  On the one
it was kinda neat to dine 'al fresco' anywhere - just pull a seat out
set it on the sidewalk.  Viola!  On the other hand it did make for an 
interesting bit of 'bumper cars' while we were driving about!

Who once tried to talk a buddy with a Triumph Spitfire into using it for

endurance racing!  {I don't care who ya are - *that's* funny!}  It
been cool.  We coulda towed it to a race. He could have driven it for 45

minutes or so.  Then we could tow it home to repair.  The next event I 
would get to drive for about an hour until it broke again.  [We had no 
illusions of actually winning or even finishing. We just thought it
be cool to be out on the track for a little bit ... and he already had
the car.]
