Bleeding the Brakes

End of July Contest – Tell Us Your Favorite Garage Story

Update: The contest is now closed! We would like to congratulate Ray Whitley on his win which was determined at random from all entries received. We would also like to thank all of those who entered the contest. Entertaining stuff! I bet you didn’t know that July is my birthday month – well it is. But, I am going to give you the present. Aren’t I generous? We Leo’s are like that!  Since this book is proving to be so popular, I thought you might like another contest chance to win a copy of Robert Morey’s Philosophy and Psychology of British Car Restoration. This is a great little book, and a fun read for any fan of old British cars. So, you might be asking yourself how you enter the contest. I gave a lot of thought to that and decided that […]

Classic Cars

Win a Copy of Philosophy and Psychology of British Car Restoration

Congratulations to our winner! We would like to congratulate Bruce Cunha on his win of the book. Bruce, and you can read his comment below, drives an MG BGT as his everyday ride, which is great! Says his wife drives an SUV, and he has an MG TD under restoration. Sounds like a pretty good way to go. Look for our next contest coming soon. We haven’t had a competition for a while, and it is time to change that. What’s more, we would like to give some lucky ready out there a chance to own a copy of Robert Morey’s Philosophy and Psychology of British Car Restoration. You have heard us talk about the book, and you may have even read Bob Seidler’s excellent review, so now it is time for us to part with a copy and send it […]

2002 MINI Cooper S - Contest - The One That Got Away

November Contest – The One That Got Away

Note: This contest is now closed! So, our November contest? Well, think about this. We all have those stories, those used-to-haves or near misses. We all can tell tales of “the one that got away.” Sometimes they are cars that would now be worth wheel-barrows full of money. Sometimes they are cars that saw us through tough times or good times or were just near and dear to our hearts. There are cars that we had that we had to let go of due to growing families, or career changes, or simple changes in fortunes. There are other cars that we almost bought but that slipped through our fingers or were snatched from our grasp. I used to have a yellow Triumph TR250. Sure it needed work, but it was solid and fun. But this was 1987 when I was […]

John Huber - Winner of the Show Us Your Sticker Contest

Winner – Show Us Your Sticker Contest

Just a quick post to announce the lucky winner of our Show Us You Sticker contest. And the winner is … John Huber of Maryland!  As you will remember, the prize for this contest was a Meguiar’s Complete Car Care Kit. This should serve to get your ride shining for those Fall shows. I have used most, if not all, of the products in this kit and can personally attest to the quality. Though from the picture he sent, it looks like John’s B is already quite the shiner. In addition to that fine Just British Online Motoring Magazine sticker, check out the other bumper sticker. Love it! And even better than that, well to me anyway, check out that license plate. Must admit that I am quite jealous of that one. Honestly, I love getting these pictures and hearing the […]

Bootsale Puzzle Front

New Contest – And This One Is A Real Puzzle

UPDATE: We have a winner!  Mr Steve Wincze of the Connecticut MG Club has been drawn by random number. I have a feeling folks attending the Gathering By The Sea in June will see this puzzle up for grabs. Congratulations to Steve and thanks to all of those who entered. A new contest will  appear on the site soon, so good luck. Well here it is, the new contest. I told you that this one would be a puzzle, and it is! Yes, a true 1,000 piece jigsaw puzzle produced by Ravensburger and title, “Car Boot”. A boot sale, of course, is basically a flea market held out of the boot of cars. So with this distinctly British puzzle, you will see all sorts of British cars, vans, trinkets and other memorabilia. It is honestly a feast for the eyes […]

Stirling Moss Scrapbook 1955 - Contest Give-Away

Contest Give-Away – Stirling Moss Scrapbook 1955

UPDATE: Comments and the contest are now closed because we have a winner! Yes, out of all the entries Frank Stabler was selected through a random drawing to receive the prize. Congratulations Frank! Last year, at Sir Stirling Moss‘s suggestion, Porter Press reprinted their most popular Scrapbook documenting his amazing 1955 year which of course included the Mille Miglia win and first GP victory. And we are having a contest to give one away. The 1955 Stirling Moss Scrapbook is now back in stock to commemorate sixty years of this crucial year for the racing driver. The first of a series of Stirling Moss scrapbooks which now includes as separate volumes 1926-54, 1956-60, and 1961, the 1955 Scrapbook evokes memories of the heyday of classic motorsport. We covered this book when it came out back in July, and were sent one […]
