Car restorer wants to spur interest in new generation

"Brings back memories of driving these things in the 60's when they were an everyday car," Kenneth Beck of K&T Vintage Sports Cars said while driving. Read More...

New tires and a shave

In late 2013 I “accidentally” bought a 1974 MGB from a local eBay seller. Aside from the fact that it looked OK for a driver, I was impressed with the look of the wire wheels. ....

I’m not a big fan of wire wheels, so the tech session at K&T Vintage Sports Cars on November 12 wasn’t a big attraction to me. But I decided to attend so I could do three of my favorite things: take photos, drive my Jaguar and spend time with good friends from the club.
