Past times & memories

Another old sketch I found among some documents, a trip to Le Mans in 1983, I was driving a rather old and asthmatic MG Midget, my friend Malcolm had a Sunbeam Tiger and "tricky Nicky" drove this Mk7 Jag.

After the racing we drove up to Mont St Michelle where this was drawn,. The clutch operating arm on the Midget snapped and with no breakdown service, so I managed to drive all the way home with no clutch. My friend Mark would push to get the car rolling and then jump in as soon as it was in gear. Changing up and down gears was actually very easy once moving,  just heel and toe to match the revs. We dreaded stopping, but there were very few traffic lights in France in those days and we even managed to drive onto the ferry without having to stop.

Guess you couldn't get away with things like that these days, and that's a good thing given the traffic volumes and speed which we now take for granted. In case anyone is not familiar with "stick shift" and no clutch, you pull the car out of gear, rev the engine slightly until the rev's match and then the net gear should slip in effortlessly.

    1. I got my already programmed and blanked ATM card to withdraw the maximum of $1,000 daily for a maximum of 20 days. I am so happy about this because i got mine last week and I have used it to get $20,000. Mike Fisher Hackers is giving out the card just to help the poor and needy though it is illegal but it is something nice and he is not like other scam pretending to have the blank ATM cards. And no one gets caught when using the card. get yours from Mike Fisher Hackers today! *email cyberhackingcompany@gmail.com

  3. The clutch operating arm is outside the gearbox, it sticks out through a hole in the bell housing, it snapped just outside the bell housing where the clutch slave cylinder attached and fortunately clean break so none of the debris fell inside near the clutch. Those old MG's were more like tractor engineering :O)
