Now that we yet again have, after over a decade hiatus, a British car — the Green 1968 MGB — we had no choice but to join the “British Cars of New Hampshire” club.

They were no strangers to us as we have been to a number of their shows — most recently the “Show of Dreams” in 2013, in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire.

A number of the members had also been extremely helpful to me when I posted on “The MG Experience” forum. They urged me to join — though in reality no urging was required per se. I always intended to join. Now we have — and by we I mean Devanee & I, since the MGB is going to be Devanee’s car and she plans to start driving it in about 10 months. 

Another British car seems to be in our future. I have already started making phone calls about handing in our leased KIA Sportage in May — a month ahead of its lease end. Appears that that is permitted. I can return it any time after May 28, though the lease doesn’t end till June 27 (Deanna’s birthday). No, no … not a question of miles. It is a 36,000 lease and it hasn’t even done 30,000 yet. Doubt whether we can put 7,000 in the next 4 weeks. I just had it with KIA. Just want to see the back of it and get a British car.

The next British car will more than likely be an OLD Jaguar. Inexplicably I have never owned a Jag. How could that be. Yes, I came within 90% of owning an E-Type in 2001 — but that was when I lived a different life. E-Type are now beyond my dreams. Over the years I have owned (or had given to me as company cars) Triumphs (x4), Rover (x2) and MGs (x2) but never a Jag. Going to rectify that. Stay tuned.
