Chairman’s message

British Car Council of Canada Long Distance Award

This award is a specially struck plaque with the participant’s name and vehicle particulars, and is presented to those who have traveled the pre-requisite distance during the driving season of April 1st through October 31st. Dash plaques will be awarded to every driver successfully completing 3000 miles or 5000 kilometers (individual vehicles or combination of vehicles).

The odometer reading at the start and end of the season must be recorded by a member of the Club Executive. We now have a ‘head start’ on this contest for 2017. If you think that you are going to hit the required minimum next season, contact a member of the Executive and we’ll get the ball rolling. Please remember that you will need to be a fully paid-up member of our Club to be considered for this award.

The Entry Form may be downloaded here.

Good luck for 2017!
Best Regards,
John Griffith, Chair
British Saloon Car Club of Canada

Steven Wagoner <swag11@gmail.com> contacted us through Harold Leece:

My name is Steve Wagoner, I live in New Jersey USA . I am the owner of several British cars, one of which is a 1958 Ford Consul MK11 Hi Line. The car is about ready to undergo a restoration (by me). I have been collecting parts required to complete this undertaking. What I currently need is a front windscreen, mine is cracked. I am reaching out to my neighbors north of the border to see if there may be a Windscreen for a Hi Line Consul available up there. I may be able to pick it up in The Niagara area of the Ontario Province If one is available.
Thank you for reading my ramblings ,

“I have located a used BMC 2.6 litre engine from which I would like to have the air intake/air cleaner for my A95. Unfortunately the man will sell only the entire lump and shipping it back to Ontario is going to increase the cost quite a bit.

I’d like to find another enthusiast who wants/needs parts to share the thing with me. It will fit a variety of cars, Wolseley, Riley, Austin, Healey BN4. Said to be in good running order with less than 60,000 miles when removed from a Wolseley 6/90 that is now a hotrod.
There are no pictures available (yet).”
