Where There’s <strong>Smoke</strong> There’s Fire!<br />

Marc Cherry<br />

Editor<br />

Yes, <strong>the</strong> <strong>Smoke</strong> is back. It turns out <strong>the</strong> fire wasn’t completely out on our newsletter. Clearly we’ve had<br />

a busy year <strong>in</strong> our club. We officially brought 2016 to a close at our Christmas party and moved on to<br />

next year with <strong>the</strong> <strong>in</strong>stallation of new officers. Now th<strong>in</strong>gs are about to get even busier as we head <strong>in</strong><br />

to <strong>the</strong> new year and our 25 th anniversary car show.<br />

Before we surge ahead to <strong>the</strong> future and our show, it’s important to first look back and hit a couple of<br />

highlights. Thank you to Taber Tomk<strong>in</strong>s for his service as our president for <strong>the</strong> past two years. He’s<br />

done a tremendous service for us and has left office with <strong>the</strong> club fully poised to host a brilliant<br />

anniversary show. He has overseen a challeng<strong>in</strong>g effort to update our longstand<strong>in</strong>g bylaws and<br />

overseen major changes <strong>in</strong> our event venues and activities. Paul Salm now moves up to <strong>the</strong> presidency.<br />

Paul has done a lot of beh<strong>in</strong>d <strong>the</strong> scenes work and is probably <strong>the</strong> sole reason <strong>the</strong> Pensacola Euro Show<br />

came off this past year, as he worked hard to preserve <strong>the</strong> advances we made host<strong>in</strong>g <strong>the</strong> show <strong>in</strong><br />

2015 before hand<strong>in</strong>g it off to a young and very <strong>in</strong>formally-organized host club for 2016. We’re jo<strong>in</strong>ed<br />

on <strong>the</strong> executive committee by Tim Maynard for <strong>2017</strong>. Tim has been a regular volunteer for many of<br />

our events. We are extremely pleased to add a fresh face to <strong>the</strong> executive committee.<br />

For those who missed our Christmas party at <strong>the</strong> Seville Quarter, it was a fabulous time and turned out<br />

to be a great venue for our club. We had plenty of space, good food and were extremely well cared for<br />

by <strong>the</strong> host staff. Thank you to Bob Manske, Liz Maynard, Tim Maynard and Paul Salm for organiz<strong>in</strong>g<br />

<strong>the</strong> party. Bob asked for a special thanks to Liz, who prepared all <strong>the</strong> worksheets on budget items,<br />

made all <strong>the</strong> centerpieces for <strong>the</strong> tables, and took on <strong>the</strong> build<strong>in</strong>g of options and track<strong>in</strong>g of expenses.<br />

We are already set to return next year with several improvements already <strong>in</strong> <strong>the</strong> works.<br />

Now look<strong>in</strong>g toward our 25 th anniversary show <strong>in</strong> April, we have a lot of changes from previous shows<br />

that we need to plan out. Our venue has changed to an outstand<strong>in</strong>g, well-appo<strong>in</strong>ted new location. We<br />

have also improved our goodie bags by several orders of magnitude. F<strong>in</strong>ally, our trophies will be<br />

entirely new and unique to PBCA and our 25 th anniversary. What hasn’t changed? Our volunteerism,<br />

that’s what. We’ve already reconfirmed <strong>the</strong> vast majority of our volunteer army from last year. We’re<br />

count<strong>in</strong>g on <strong>the</strong> expertise of our volunteers to carry <strong>the</strong> day despite a sea of changes. The most current<br />

volunteer list is on page 15. Please let me know if you cannot do <strong>the</strong> same job you had last year. I’ll be<br />

talk<strong>in</strong>g to everyone to confirm your spot or to help you out if you’d like to do someth<strong>in</strong>g different this<br />

year.<br />

This show is larger than any event we’ve held. We need your help <strong>in</strong> plann<strong>in</strong>g through members<br />

register<strong>in</strong>g <strong>the</strong>ir cars as early as possible. The more cars we know are attend<strong>in</strong>g <strong>in</strong> advance, <strong>the</strong> better<br />

we will be able to accommodate <strong>the</strong>m. We also need sponsorship to put on an event of this size. Talk<br />

to your friends and local bus<strong>in</strong>esses and ask for <strong>the</strong> $40 donations that promote this show. Look at <strong>the</strong><br />

back of this issue for <strong>the</strong> entry and sponsor forms.<br />

Probably <strong>the</strong> s<strong>in</strong>gle biggest change is <strong>the</strong> venue. This year we will be <strong>in</strong> Seville Square <strong>in</strong> downtown<br />

Pensacola. It is a great location and closer to <strong>the</strong> Commerce Museum where we hold our Friday red<br />

beans and rice welcome party. While <strong>the</strong> Seville Square location has a lot more amenities, it also has a<br />

<strong>Smoke</strong> <strong>in</strong> <strong>the</strong> <strong>Wires</strong> <strong>February</strong> <strong>2017</strong> Page 3

couple of issues we’ll need to plan for. This is a tight venue for us, so check-<strong>in</strong>, photos, driv<strong>in</strong>g corridors<br />

and park<strong>in</strong>g will need to be well-planned to make efficient, enjoyable, and safe use of <strong>the</strong> space. A<br />

carefully-planned park<strong>in</strong>g plan, executed by a motivated park<strong>in</strong>g crew, will transform this <strong>in</strong>to an<br />

outstand<strong>in</strong>g event. We’ll be do<strong>in</strong>g our major site plann<strong>in</strong>g <strong>in</strong> March that will likely end <strong>in</strong> a simulated<br />

war game where we move pieces around a table to test our plan. Professionals will recognize this as<br />

military-style war gam<strong>in</strong>g. Our wives and casual observers will only see grown men play<strong>in</strong>g with Hot<br />

Wheels cars.<br />

Letters to <strong>the</strong> Editor:<br />

Editor,<br />

I th<strong>in</strong>k you should consider add<strong>in</strong>g a brief article about our seriously crazy club member, Henry Hensel.<br />

This is <strong>the</strong> car we w<strong>in</strong>ched <strong>in</strong>to my trailer and hauled to his house on Turkey Road <strong>in</strong> Pensacola. It is<br />

<strong>the</strong> pitiful rema<strong>in</strong>s of a 1952 MG TD roadster.<br />

I thought Franz had me tow some nasty cars, but Hensel w<strong>in</strong> <strong>the</strong> prize. Most of <strong>the</strong> car fell apart and<br />

was placed <strong>in</strong> <strong>the</strong> trailer by hand.<br />

He may be able to expla<strong>in</strong> just what he was th<strong>in</strong>k<strong>in</strong>g when he decided to get this car. He told me that<br />

he had tried to buy it 20 years ago but <strong>the</strong> owner wouldn’t sell.<br />

Now <strong>the</strong> owner gave it to him for free!! I have two more pictures of <strong>the</strong> car, but this one is best.<br />

Greet<strong>in</strong>gs from your “new” President:<br />

I must beg<strong>in</strong> by say<strong>in</strong>g that I had (<strong>in</strong> my m<strong>in</strong>d at least) enterta<strong>in</strong>ed <strong>the</strong> ambitious idea of call<strong>in</strong>g each of you<br />

before <strong>the</strong> end of <strong>the</strong> year to <strong>in</strong>troduce myself and ask what I can do to spur a renewed <strong>in</strong>terest and<br />

participation <strong>in</strong> club activities. As is obvious, we are already <strong>in</strong>to <strong>the</strong> new year, no calls were made, and I<br />

have accepted <strong>the</strong> bitter consequence of attempt<strong>in</strong>g this task with pen (or more accurately, laptop) at<br />

hand. While this letter will go out to every PBCA member, I would prefer and will make every effort to<br />

personally meet each of you before <strong>the</strong> end of my first year. Our monthly meet<strong>in</strong>gs would be a good<br />

start<strong>in</strong>g po<strong>in</strong>t. Fail<strong>in</strong>g that, at any club event, you would have no problem recogniz<strong>in</strong>g me, as I would be <strong>the</strong><br />

one with no LBC by his side. Contrary to some rumbl<strong>in</strong>gs, I do actually own one.<br />

As your new president, I am excited, humbled, and especially honored to be at <strong>the</strong> 'helm' (darn, how I hate<br />

nautical terms) for <strong>the</strong> next two years. I cont<strong>in</strong>ue to be impressed by <strong>the</strong> support, cooperation and genu<strong>in</strong>e<br />

friendship shared by <strong>the</strong> members of <strong>the</strong> PBCA and all who love British cars. After all, isn't ownership of a<br />

British automobile a constant test of one's faith and <strong>in</strong>ner strength?<br />

Mov<strong>in</strong>g on to more important concerns, my new position gives me <strong>the</strong> added privilege of presid<strong>in</strong>g over a<br />

significant event <strong>in</strong> our club's history. This year, "Brits on <strong>the</strong> Bay" celebrates its 25th Anniversary. Under<br />

<strong>the</strong> leadership of Tom Schmitz, we are expend<strong>in</strong>g enormous effort to make it as memorable and successful<br />

as befits <strong>the</strong> milestone that it is. With this <strong>in</strong> m<strong>in</strong>d, I am ask<strong>in</strong>g for every member's personal support to<br />

help meet <strong>the</strong> added 25th Anniversary costs associated with <strong>the</strong> event.<br />

A considerable portion of <strong>the</strong> show expense is covered by sell<strong>in</strong>g sponsorships. These can be <strong>in</strong> <strong>the</strong> form of<br />

a standard $40 Class Sponsor or a "Major" sponsorship, start<strong>in</strong>g at $100 and above. While we'd love to<br />

have everyone sell a major, we also recognize that many of our patrons are not able to afford that amount,<br />

nor would we expect everyone to push for that level. In my own case, I have sold to those bus<strong>in</strong>esses with<br />

whom I have dealt for rout<strong>in</strong>e services over <strong>the</strong> years. They <strong>in</strong>clude vets, tire stores, and even some<br />

doctors and dentists. So, for each of you, if you have become a 'regular' customer over <strong>the</strong> years, why not<br />

make a casual pitch for <strong>the</strong> show? Who knows, you may get one or two with little or no effort. If you are<br />

not comfortable do<strong>in</strong>g this, which is understandable you might consider becom<strong>in</strong>g a sponsor. Just one class<br />

sponsor per member would contribute greatly to its success.<br />

For <strong>the</strong> record, and <strong>in</strong> <strong>the</strong> off chance that not all members are aware of this, all proceeds from <strong>the</strong> show,<br />

after expenses, enable your PBCA to provide <strong>the</strong> year's calendar of events, with very few exceptions, at no<br />

cost to you. All <strong>the</strong> more reason to become a sponsor. In any case, as a volunteer, you can take pride <strong>in</strong><br />

<strong>the</strong> fruits of your labor, enjoy <strong>the</strong> festivities at <strong>the</strong> show, buy some raffle tickets on <strong>the</strong> always unique and<br />

often 'gotta have' items donated by our talented members, and give me a chance to meet you personally.<br />

I look forward to your support.<br />

Regards,<br />

Paul<br />

…and to <strong>the</strong> Po<strong>in</strong>t All meet<strong>in</strong>gs are closer<br />

than <strong>the</strong>y appear <strong>in</strong> <strong>the</strong> rear view mirror, and<br />

<strong>the</strong> gala event of <strong>the</strong> car show season, <strong>the</strong><br />

April 21-22 “Brits on <strong>the</strong> Bay” Welcom<strong>in</strong>g<br />

Party and Car Show, is rapidly wend<strong>in</strong>g its<br />

way, soon to be upon us, and will strike like<br />

viper if we are not all ready and, most<br />

importantly, if you are not <strong>the</strong>re.<br />

This is <strong>the</strong> 25th Anniversary Show, and PBCA<br />

is mak<strong>in</strong>g every effort to make it an<br />

immemorial show that you can tell your<br />

grandchildren about.<br />

We, <strong>the</strong> Show Committee and many o<strong>the</strong>rs,<br />

started work about October, and have been<br />

work<strong>in</strong>g assiduously, with a m<strong>in</strong>imum of<br />

monthly meet<strong>in</strong>gs and several call meet<strong>in</strong>gs.<br />

Those of you who have been part of putt<strong>in</strong>g on<br />

a car show know <strong>the</strong> multiple tasks, small and<br />

large, that must be attended to. We faced an<br />

especially challeng<strong>in</strong>g one when <strong>the</strong> near-bay<br />

front site we have used for several years, free<br />

of charge due to <strong>the</strong> generosity and courtesy of<br />

<strong>the</strong> Mouton family, became unavailable.<br />

Regrettably for us and wonderful for <strong>the</strong>m,<br />

<strong>the</strong>y recently sold this beautiful several-acres,<br />

old oak tree-adorned wonderland, so we<br />

became vagabonds, search<strong>in</strong>g for a place to<br />

put down our roots. Fortunately, through help<br />

from many, especially PBCA member Bill<br />

Weeks, we were able to rent <strong>the</strong> city-owned<br />

Seville Square, an equally tree-l<strong>in</strong>ed venue.<br />

The expense was considerable, but it neatly<br />

meets our needs, albeit a smaller site. This<br />

reduction of size called for some skillful and<br />

successful plann<strong>in</strong>g, led by member Marc<br />

Cherry. Members who are <strong>in</strong>terested <strong>in</strong><br />

volunteer<strong>in</strong>g for <strong>the</strong> show date are encouraged<br />

to contact Marc at redshirt98@att.net.<br />

The festivities start with <strong>the</strong> Welcom<strong>in</strong>g Party,<br />

beg<strong>in</strong>n<strong>in</strong>g at 6 p.m. at <strong>the</strong> Museum of<br />

Commerce, 201 E. Zaragoza Street <strong>in</strong><br />

Pensacola. Many hands are work<strong>in</strong>g on this<br />

event, led ably by Bob Manske and Liz<br />

Maynard. The food and dr<strong>in</strong>k will be<br />

volum<strong>in</strong>ous, <strong>the</strong> friendship warm, and <strong>the</strong><br />

enterta<strong>in</strong>ment marg<strong>in</strong>al. All our friends from<br />

nearby clubs, out of town visitors, sponsors<br />

are welcome with open arms.<br />

The “Brits on <strong>the</strong> Bay” Show registration<br />

opens at 8:30 a.m. at Seville Square and for<br />

<strong>the</strong> public at 10 a.m. While one can never be<br />

sure of attendance, over <strong>the</strong> past few years we<br />

have averaged about 130-150 cars and a large<br />

crowd of visitors. We hope to exceed that <strong>in</strong><br />

<strong>2017</strong>. One can pre-register (forms available at<br />

website www.pbca1.com) or on site. The web<br />

site also has <strong>in</strong>formation on hotel registration<br />

as well. We have planned our early morn<strong>in</strong>g<br />

car wash at all <strong>the</strong> hotel sites listed, our<br />

special goody bags for <strong>the</strong> event and have<br />

<strong>in</strong>cluded our ma<strong>in</strong>stays, <strong>the</strong> “Not Quite Fab”<br />

Beatles homage band, our terrific silent<br />

auction and 50/50 and an array of beautiful<br />

British cars that we all take such pride <strong>in</strong>.<br />

Due to city regulations, we will not be sell<strong>in</strong>g<br />

our great food from <strong>the</strong> PBCA Café, but are<br />

fortunate to have several restaurants available<br />

across from Seville Square.<br />

But all this comes to naught if you are not<br />

<strong>the</strong>re, so please mark your calendar with<br />

those dates, April 21-22, and don’t be among<br />

<strong>the</strong> miss<strong>in</strong>g come Friday and Saturday. See<br />

you <strong>the</strong>re.<br />

Until next time, it’s not a good idea to mix<br />

starter fluid and a cigarette.<br />

Twelfth Annual Pensacola-Atmore<br />

Road Rally<br />

Saturday Feb. 4, <strong>2017</strong><br />

By Bill Moseley<br />

On a beautiful day, <strong>the</strong> rally course ran 49 miles from North Pensacola over nicely paved<br />

two-lane “Roads Seldom Travelled” and ended at David’s Catfish House <strong>in</strong> Atmore,<br />

Alabama. Many people saw some of <strong>the</strong> roads for <strong>the</strong> first time. The Rally day was simple:<br />

You registered, got a rally course sheet, and left at your convenience. There is never an entry<br />

fee to participate.<br />

The rally is sponsored by Panhandle Cruisers, Warren Peacock, President and Pensacola<br />

Aust<strong>in</strong>-Healey Club, Bill Moseley, Rallymaster<br />

Over 130 cars and members of 18-plus clubs participated. They capped off <strong>the</strong> rally with a<br />

f<strong>in</strong>e meal at David’s Catfish House. David’s was reserved for us and <strong>the</strong> whole David’s crew<br />

turned out. Rob Faircloth, owner, wrote that this was <strong>the</strong>ir s<strong>in</strong>gle biggest day, ever!!<br />

The ma<strong>in</strong> objective of <strong>the</strong> rally is to have a driv<strong>in</strong>g event for people from all car clubs of all<br />

makes to drive <strong>in</strong> and socialize toge<strong>the</strong>r. As you can see <strong>in</strong> <strong>the</strong> pictures, everybody walked<br />

around, saw <strong>the</strong> very diverse cars and had good conversations about <strong>the</strong>m.<br />

Most of <strong>the</strong> “no club” participants jo<strong>in</strong>ed a club. This event showed that car clubs are for<br />

cars and <strong>the</strong> people who love to drive <strong>the</strong>m.<br />

Brits on <strong>the</strong> Bay Trophies<br />

By Marc Cherry<br />

For our upcom<strong>in</strong>g 25 th anniversary car show, everyone on <strong>the</strong> show committee<br />

wanted to see us upgrade <strong>the</strong> trophies that we present to <strong>the</strong> w<strong>in</strong>ners. We<br />

were <strong>in</strong>spired by <strong>the</strong> glorious plates, sculptures and crystal vases presented at<br />

<strong>the</strong> major concours events. We had champagne dreams and a Budweiser<br />

budget; still, <strong>the</strong>y had to look good and be dist<strong>in</strong>ctly PBCA.<br />

I thought we could deliver someth<strong>in</strong>g <strong>in</strong> metal, at least for our top trophies<br />

cover<strong>in</strong>g <strong>the</strong> major awards. Silver and black are a classic comb<strong>in</strong>ation and<br />

exactly right for a silver anniversary. Noth<strong>in</strong>g is more classically British than <strong>the</strong><br />

two-eared sp<strong>in</strong>ners that adorn so many of our cars regardless of marque. We<br />

decided to roll all of those elements up <strong>in</strong>to one for our trophy <strong>the</strong>me—silver<br />

sp<strong>in</strong>ners on a piano-black pl<strong>in</strong>th. I did <strong>the</strong> work ma<strong>in</strong>ly us<strong>in</strong>g my computernumerically-controlled<br />

(CNC) mill and design software. I cut out replicas of <strong>the</strong><br />

large-style sp<strong>in</strong>ners found on ‘big’ British cars, <strong>in</strong>to which I <strong>the</strong>n detailed our<br />

<strong>Smoke</strong> <strong>in</strong> <strong>the</strong> <strong>Wires</strong> <strong>February</strong> <strong>2017</strong> Page 10

PBCA logo. As we needed five metal sp<strong>in</strong>ners for our top trophies as well as<br />

similar trophies for <strong>the</strong> classes, we unfortunately couldn’t afford <strong>the</strong> time, metal<br />

or labor to do <strong>the</strong> class<br />

trophies <strong>in</strong> <strong>the</strong> same<br />

manner. So <strong>the</strong> rest of <strong>the</strong><br />

trophies have been cast<br />

from res<strong>in</strong>.<br />

The f<strong>in</strong>al plan required five<br />

alum<strong>in</strong>um sp<strong>in</strong>ners<br />

mach<strong>in</strong>ed from billet with<br />

one that was used to make<br />

The orig<strong>in</strong>al wooden test piece<br />

a mold for res<strong>in</strong> cast<strong>in</strong>g all of<br />

<strong>the</strong> o<strong>the</strong>r first-<strong>in</strong>-class awards. For <strong>the</strong> second and third place trophies, I cut<br />

our logo <strong>in</strong>to <strong>the</strong> tops of worn orig<strong>in</strong>al sp<strong>in</strong>ners and used those to make molds<br />

for cast<strong>in</strong>g.<br />

The first alum<strong>in</strong>um piece comes off of <strong>the</strong> mill<br />

<strong>Smoke</strong> <strong>in</strong> <strong>the</strong> <strong>Wires</strong> <strong>February</strong> <strong>2017</strong> Page 11

To do this all <strong>in</strong> my garage, I first designed a full-sized, two-eared sp<strong>in</strong>ner us<strong>in</strong>g<br />

my computer assisted design (CAD) software. I converted this <strong>in</strong>to a 3D model<br />

and exported it <strong>in</strong>to my computer Aided Mach<strong>in</strong><strong>in</strong>g (CAM) software. Here, <strong>the</strong><br />

real work began as I developed a cutt<strong>in</strong>g plan. I converted artwork from our<br />

First and second place trophies ready for pour<strong>in</strong>g <strong>the</strong> rubber molds<br />

club logo <strong>in</strong>to an engrav<strong>in</strong>g<br />

mach<strong>in</strong><strong>in</strong>g operation. This cutt<strong>in</strong>g<br />

plan was transferred to <strong>the</strong> mill<br />

control software and metal began to<br />

fly. I cut out five alum<strong>in</strong>um sp<strong>in</strong>ners<br />

from chunks of billet alum<strong>in</strong>um<br />

donated by Al DeWeese. I used a<br />

different attachment to engrave <strong>the</strong><br />

club logo <strong>in</strong>to <strong>the</strong> face of <strong>the</strong> sp<strong>in</strong>ner<br />

replicas. Each sp<strong>in</strong>ner required<br />

between seven and n<strong>in</strong>e hours of<br />

mach<strong>in</strong><strong>in</strong>g time to complete. From<br />

<strong>the</strong>re, Taber Tomk<strong>in</strong>s and Paul Salm<br />

Third place trophy ready to be molded<br />

sanded and polished <strong>the</strong>m to gleam<strong>in</strong>g perfection. Similarly, for <strong>the</strong> second and<br />

third place trophies, I cut our logo <strong>in</strong>to <strong>the</strong> tops of smaller, two-eared and<br />

earless sp<strong>in</strong>ners donated by Franz Bachmann and Bill Weeks.<br />

Weigh<strong>in</strong>g catalyst and mix<strong>in</strong>g <strong>the</strong> mold rubber<br />

Next I purchased a gallon of specialty silicone rubber called Smooth-On 25 to<br />

make <strong>the</strong> molds. The trophy masters were placed <strong>in</strong> water-tight conta<strong>in</strong>ers for<br />

this process. As <strong>the</strong> Smooth-On is ra<strong>the</strong>r expensive, I filled each mold with<br />

water first and measured exactly how much rubber I would need. The molds<br />

need to be at least 3/8 <strong>in</strong>ch thick <strong>in</strong> all dimensions, so it did take some careful<br />

plann<strong>in</strong>g to set up. Smooth-On is very particular about how it is catalyzed—<br />

strictly by weight. Fortunately, I had a postal scale available. The catalyst was<br />

stirred <strong>in</strong> slowly to avoid <strong>in</strong>troduc<strong>in</strong>g bubbles. Once mixed, <strong>the</strong> silicone was<br />

poured over <strong>the</strong> masters. The rubber-covered surfaces of <strong>the</strong> masters were<br />

brushed to release any air bubbles that may be stuck to <strong>the</strong> surface. Twentyfour<br />

hours later, <strong>the</strong> molds were ready.<br />

<strong>Smoke</strong> <strong>in</strong> <strong>the</strong> <strong>Wires</strong> <strong>February</strong> <strong>2017</strong> Page 13

All molds poured and ready to remove and beg<strong>in</strong> cast<strong>in</strong>g <strong>the</strong> class trophies<br />

It turns out that cast<strong>in</strong>g res<strong>in</strong> is also expensive, so I made my own us<strong>in</strong>g less<br />

expensive fiberglass res<strong>in</strong> and glass micro-balloons. The micro-balloons<br />

thicken <strong>the</strong> res<strong>in</strong> and add volume on a 1:1 basis. I prefer to mix <strong>in</strong> about 40%<br />

micro-balloons by volume, stir, and <strong>the</strong>n add <strong>the</strong> catalyst. Gett<strong>in</strong>g <strong>the</strong> right<br />

amount without wast<strong>in</strong>g or fall<strong>in</strong>g short of enough material was important. It<br />

turned out that a microwave Ch<strong>in</strong>ese noodle dish holds exactly <strong>the</strong> volume<br />

needed for a set of first, second and third place casts. Once catalyzed, I<br />

poured it <strong>in</strong>to <strong>the</strong> mold, brushed <strong>the</strong> surfaces to remove air bubbles and waited<br />

four to eight hours for <strong>the</strong> casts to be ready, depend<strong>in</strong>g on <strong>the</strong> temperature and<br />

amount of catalyst used.<br />

Now that all of <strong>the</strong> casts are built, I have to clean <strong>the</strong>m up for pa<strong>in</strong>t<strong>in</strong>g. You’ll<br />

have to wait for <strong>the</strong> April <strong>Smoke</strong> to see <strong>the</strong>m come toge<strong>the</strong>r.<br />

Featured Car<br />

1991 Land Rover Defender 110<br />

Grant Bucks<br />

Words and Photos by Marc Cherry<br />

As we contemplate <strong>the</strong> 25 th anniversary of <strong>the</strong> Brits on <strong>the</strong> Bay car show, I thought we might feature a car<br />

that is also 25 years old. This month’s feature car is a truck. Our featured 1991 Land Rover Defender 110 is<br />

not only new to this area, it is new to this cont<strong>in</strong>ent. Lt Col Grant Bucks was lucky enough to be stationed <strong>in</strong><br />

<strong>the</strong> United K<strong>in</strong>gdom for <strong>the</strong> past few years. While liv<strong>in</strong>g <strong>the</strong>re, he got bit by <strong>the</strong> British car bug and decided<br />

he had to have an old Land Rover to br<strong>in</strong>g back to <strong>the</strong> States.<br />

Know<strong>in</strong>g that <strong>the</strong> vehicle had to be at least 25 years old to come <strong>in</strong>to <strong>the</strong> US legally, he sought out an old<br />

Land Rover Defender 110. After a lengthy search, he secured what he thought was <strong>the</strong> perfect 1991 v<strong>in</strong>tage<br />

vehicle and began to upgrade it and prepare it for <strong>the</strong> trip across <strong>the</strong> Atlantic. The biggest issue was <strong>the</strong><br />

eng<strong>in</strong>e. A previous owner had swapped it for an eng<strong>in</strong>e from a different Landie. Our DOT requires that an<br />

import vehicle be equipped with its orig<strong>in</strong>al type eng<strong>in</strong>e. With some difficulty, Grant sourced a runn<strong>in</strong>g<br />

eng<strong>in</strong>e, serviced it and restored <strong>the</strong> Defender to its orig<strong>in</strong>al mechanical specifications.<br />

<strong>Smoke</strong> <strong>in</strong> <strong>the</strong> <strong>Wires</strong> <strong>February</strong> <strong>2017</strong> Page 18

He also set out to modernize <strong>the</strong><br />

vehicle by replac<strong>in</strong>g most of <strong>the</strong><br />

<strong>in</strong>terior with newer components. The<br />

vehicle ended up safer, too. Out went<br />

<strong>the</strong> shorty rear seats and tired cloth<br />

front seats <strong>in</strong> favor of newer, heated<br />

lea<strong>the</strong>r seat<strong>in</strong>g, three-po<strong>in</strong>t harnesses,<br />

modern <strong>in</strong>strumentation and a stereo/CD<br />

with USB <strong>in</strong>puts. Uprated LED fixtures<br />

replaced almost all of <strong>the</strong> <strong>in</strong>terior and<br />

exterior light<strong>in</strong>g.<br />

Just as Grant had most of <strong>the</strong> work f<strong>in</strong>ished,<br />

<strong>the</strong> unth<strong>in</strong>kable happened. Thieves broke<br />

<strong>in</strong>to <strong>the</strong> Defender, popped it <strong>in</strong>to neutral<br />

and loaded it onto a flatbed. England might<br />

be famous for Scotland Yard, but none of<br />

those skills or ambition seemed at work<br />

amongst <strong>the</strong> Ipswich constabulary. Upon<br />

Grant report<strong>in</strong>g <strong>the</strong> crime, <strong>the</strong> police<br />

promised to send a car. After a couple hours,<br />

he called aga<strong>in</strong>. After learn<strong>in</strong>g that <strong>the</strong><br />

stolen vehicle was a classic Land Rover, <strong>the</strong>y<br />

<strong>in</strong>formed him that “You’ll never see that<br />

th<strong>in</strong>g aga<strong>in</strong>.” In fact, <strong>the</strong>y wouldn’t bo<strong>the</strong>r to<br />

send a car as <strong>the</strong> Land Rover was likely<br />

already parted out or <strong>in</strong> ano<strong>the</strong>r country.<br />

A couple of weeks passed until <strong>the</strong> owner of<br />

a nearby Christmas tree farm saw a gl<strong>in</strong>t of<br />

<strong>Smoke</strong> <strong>in</strong> <strong>the</strong> <strong>Wires</strong> <strong>February</strong> <strong>2017</strong> Page 19

ed from <strong>the</strong> back of his farm. The thieves, expect<strong>in</strong>g no traffic through a tree farm immediately after<br />

Christmas, had stashed it until <strong>the</strong>y could dispose of it. Incredibly, <strong>the</strong> vehicle was almost completely<br />

undamaged. Everyth<strong>in</strong>g was still <strong>in</strong> <strong>the</strong> car from <strong>the</strong> night it was stolen.<br />

Although <strong>the</strong> Defender was returned, Grant’s struggle to get it to <strong>the</strong> United States was not over. With a<br />

planned return to <strong>the</strong> US <strong>in</strong> <strong>the</strong> early summer of 2016, Grant duly<br />

tried to ship his vehicle over. In do<strong>in</strong>g so, he learned that <strong>the</strong> restriction was not by model year, but by<br />

assembly date. With an October 1991 build date, <strong>the</strong> Defender wouldn’t be travell<strong>in</strong>g to <strong>the</strong> US with Grant<br />

and his family. In fact, it couldn’t even leave <strong>the</strong> UK port until past <strong>the</strong> 25 th anniversary of its build date. He<br />

left it with a friend to be shipped <strong>in</strong> <strong>the</strong> fall.<br />

Fast forward through a long wait to start <strong>the</strong> shipment, a long ocean cross<strong>in</strong>g and a long customs process<br />

before <strong>the</strong> Land Rover f<strong>in</strong>ally arrived at <strong>the</strong> Atlanta debarkation yard <strong>in</strong> late January <strong>2017</strong>. The family made<br />

a two day out<strong>in</strong>g to go retrieve <strong>the</strong>ir long-awaited Land Rover. It was a lengthy journey, but certa<strong>in</strong>ly worth<br />

<strong>the</strong> wait.<br />

Rarely has <strong>the</strong>re been this k<strong>in</strong>d of opportunity to perform hobby work and look so focused and<br />

professional while you are at it. No one will mess with you while you are geared up and hard at work with<br />

this month’s feature tool, <strong>the</strong> UV Leak Detection Kit. Anyone who walks <strong>in</strong>to your garage will <strong>in</strong>stantly<br />

know that serious science is underway and you are not to be bo<strong>the</strong>red by trivial matters.<br />

<strong>Smoke</strong> <strong>in</strong> <strong>the</strong> <strong>Wires</strong> <strong>February</strong> <strong>2017</strong> Page 21

I have to confess, I’ve always wanted one of<br />

<strong>the</strong>se. The full kit has options to test any system<br />

based on oil, water or refrigerant. Anyone who<br />

has spent hours try<strong>in</strong>g to chase a slow leak<br />

around a dirty eng<strong>in</strong>e probably could have<br />

justified this kit on hours saved alone. I have lost<br />

sleep wonder<strong>in</strong>g whe<strong>the</strong>r my fresh E-Type eng<strong>in</strong>e<br />

had a leaky rear ma<strong>in</strong> seal demand<strong>in</strong>g a<br />

heartbreak<strong>in</strong>g eng<strong>in</strong>e removal and disassembly or<br />

merely a weepy banjo bolt to <strong>the</strong> cam that could<br />

be c<strong>in</strong>ched up without even hav<strong>in</strong>g to set down<br />

your freshly-mixed old fashioned. Good news, it<br />

was <strong>the</strong> banjo, <strong>in</strong> <strong>the</strong> garage with <strong>the</strong> old<br />

fashioned! While I won’t share my UV Leak<br />

Detection Kit because it was pretty spendy at<br />

$104, you can f<strong>in</strong>d my old fashioned recipe at <strong>the</strong><br />

end of this article.<br />

The tools you use say a lot about you. Walk<strong>in</strong>g<br />

around with a Mighty-Vac brake bleed kit just tells<br />

<strong>the</strong> world that you have no friends (to help you<br />

bleed brakes) and that you are easily duped <strong>in</strong>to<br />

buy<strong>in</strong>g under-perform<strong>in</strong>g tools. Show<strong>in</strong>g up with a<br />

complete UV test kit (all three options, naturally)<br />

<strong>in</strong>stantly makes you <strong>the</strong> most <strong>in</strong>terest<strong>in</strong>g man <strong>in</strong> <strong>the</strong><br />

garage. I’m not really a $125 an hour mechanic<br />

(that’s what <strong>the</strong> BMW shop wanted last week!), but<br />

I could play one on TV. The stylish and glossy amber<br />

goggles that come with <strong>the</strong> kit <strong>in</strong>stantly convey a<br />

<strong>Smoke</strong> <strong>in</strong> <strong>the</strong> <strong>Wires</strong> <strong>February</strong> <strong>2017</strong> Page 22

sense of detached professionalism. My car may be mid-century modern, but my diagnostic gear is allbus<strong>in</strong>ess,<br />

21 st century bus<strong>in</strong>ess at that.<br />

So what do you get <strong>in</strong> this kit besides <strong>the</strong> stylish goggles? While <strong>the</strong> orig<strong>in</strong>al elements were earth w<strong>in</strong>d<br />

and fire, <strong>in</strong> <strong>the</strong> automotive world <strong>the</strong>y are oil water and refrigerant. The complete kit comes with three<br />

conta<strong>in</strong>ers of marker dye for petroleum-based liquids, water-based liquids and refrigerant dye. With <strong>the</strong><br />

oil dye, you can test gas and diesel fuel systems, oil<br />

systems, brake circuits, transmissions and power<br />

steer<strong>in</strong>g systems for leaks. The water dye lets you test<br />

cool<strong>in</strong>g systems and even w<strong>in</strong>dshield washer systems.<br />

F<strong>in</strong>ally, <strong>the</strong> refrigerant dye helps determ<strong>in</strong>e whe<strong>the</strong>r it<br />

will take hundreds or thousands of dollars to fix <strong>the</strong> air<br />

conditioner. NAPA’s scientists have not left British cars<br />

out <strong>in</strong> <strong>the</strong> cold with respect to <strong>the</strong>ir unique leaks. Their<br />

new liquid smoke dye is almost consumer ready and<br />

will surely help us quickly isolate where <strong>the</strong> smoke is<br />

escap<strong>in</strong>g from <strong>the</strong> wires. In addition to <strong>the</strong>se items, a<br />

super-cool anodized alum<strong>in</strong>um UV flashlight is <strong>the</strong><br />

central tool to actually f<strong>in</strong>d<strong>in</strong>g <strong>the</strong> leak.<br />

How does it work? Just select <strong>the</strong> bottle with <strong>the</strong> dye<br />

for <strong>the</strong> type of fluid you are test<strong>in</strong>g and pour it <strong>in</strong>to <strong>the</strong><br />

system. Start <strong>the</strong> vehicle and run it up to temperature<br />

or even drive it for a couple of days if you are chas<strong>in</strong>g a<br />

really slow leak. When you are ready for <strong>the</strong><br />

exam<strong>in</strong>ation, f<strong>in</strong>d some shade, don your goggles and<br />

start sh<strong>in</strong><strong>in</strong>g <strong>the</strong> UV flashlight around <strong>the</strong> eng<strong>in</strong>e bay.<br />

You’ll know when you f<strong>in</strong>d <strong>the</strong> leak, <strong>the</strong> leak will light<br />

up <strong>the</strong> color of a yellow highlighter marker. The dye<br />

lasts for months, so it will help f<strong>in</strong>d subsequent leaks<br />

as well. Once applied, you don’t need to remove <strong>the</strong> dye from your system; just change your oil, coolant<br />

or whatever fluid on its regular ma<strong>in</strong>tenance cycle.<br />

There are noteworthy alternative uses for elements of this kit. The UV flashlight is useful for hunt<strong>in</strong>g<br />

scorpions as <strong>the</strong>y also glow <strong>in</strong> UV light. Similarly, most body fluids fluoresce as well, so <strong>the</strong> flashlight can<br />

track down a misbehav<strong>in</strong>g pet’s dirty deeds. For your sanity, I don’t recommend us<strong>in</strong>g <strong>the</strong> light <strong>in</strong> <strong>the</strong> next<br />

hotel room you stay <strong>in</strong>. Some th<strong>in</strong>gs are better unknown. The dye itself can be used <strong>in</strong> test<strong>in</strong>g dra<strong>in</strong><br />

systems or for pranks. I won’t say how I know this, but a t<strong>in</strong>y bit spilled <strong>in</strong> a shoe will create a last<strong>in</strong>g<br />

green foot. Telephone earpieces and eyeglass nosepieces are also good candidates, as well. The<br />

possibilities are endless! Or, you could stick with auto repair.<br />

Divertissements: Mod Twist to <strong>the</strong> Old Fashioned<br />

Old Fashioned but never out of style. This is my take on a venerable classic that<br />

began as a rye dr<strong>in</strong>k between <strong>the</strong> wars and evolved <strong>in</strong>to a bourbon dr<strong>in</strong>k by <strong>the</strong><br />

atomic age. Yes, Old and Mod Fashioneds use marasch<strong>in</strong>o cherries. The trick is<br />

to f<strong>in</strong>d <strong>the</strong> good ones without syrups and dyes to avoid turn<strong>in</strong>g a serious cocktail<br />

<strong>in</strong>to a boat dr<strong>in</strong>k. Tonight's mix features a s<strong>in</strong>gle cask Kentucky Bourbon from<br />

<strong>the</strong> 1792 Distillery. Start with a few small bits of orange or clement<strong>in</strong>e peel <strong>in</strong><br />

<strong>the</strong> bottom of a glass. Add a wedge of <strong>the</strong> same orange or clement<strong>in</strong>e, a dash of<br />

lemon juice, 1 tbsp of brown sugar and 3 dashes of bitters. Muddle <strong>the</strong> whole<br />

th<strong>in</strong>g well. Add ice, a marasch<strong>in</strong>o cherry, 1 oz of bourbon and a half oz of sweet<br />

vermouth. Top up with sparkl<strong>in</strong>g water and stir gently but thoroughly to avoid<br />

flatten<strong>in</strong>g <strong>the</strong> water. Enjoy!<br />
