Sorry, I must tell this Lucas smoke story .. again -

It was a warm spring day back in Connecticut, off of Webster Place, off of Shut Road when I finished working on my 1970 MGB-GT. I decided to take it for a spin around the block. All at once I smelled Lucas smoke. I skidded to a halt and popped the hood and the smoke bellowed out. Lucas smoke has a very distinct smell (like the smell of a burning clutch is distinct).

As I was frantically tearing the back seat apart to get to the batteries, a couple of neighbors were trying to knock down the electrical fire with small fire extinguishers, while yelling "humfrz, get out of there - it's gonna blow".

However, I wasn't about to let my MG burn up, so I finally got the screwed down battery cover off and pried one of the battery cables off the post. That stopped feeding the fire. The neighbors helped me push my charred car home.

Yep, the next day, I fired up my trusty back up vehicle, a 1956 Ford Pickup truck, and went to several wrecking yards till I finally found a wiring harness.

THE END

i did look it up before posting that, 25 hours is a long time to be in a car with my own thoughts. especially the long way through Nebraska.

So, if and when, the neighborhood jerk causes you a problem, you will know who to go to, to get him/her shut down.

Are you still watching one of these? (I still have one...)

WOW! - NICE TV!

Well, we do have a console TV. The only downside is, that on foggy nights, I have to reach out the window and turn the antenna pole to get the 3rd station -
