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 on to you.
The way to win this contest is quite easy – leave a comment below telling us what your daily driver is. That’s it! And yes, we know full well that your daily driver, or Grocery Getter as Mr Morey would call it, may not be British. Some of us drive our MGs and Triumphs a lot, but even for those of us who have those cars, our drives may be more modern. For instance while my daily driver is British and is old to most folk I meet, a 2002 Land Rover Discovery doesn’t really fit into the category of restoration projects we normally think about. No biggie. We have readers with daily drivers of Ford, Chevys, Mercedes, BMWs, and all sorts of other iron.
Makes no matter though, we want to know what you are driving. This is how we cleverly hide a survey within a contest. We are gonna make this a short contest. So we will be collecting responses for only one week. We will collect responses up until the time we assemble the next newsletter – so sometime on Friday morning, July 21. Nice thing about that is that your chance of winning will turn around to you sooner than with our monthly contest. Plus, I have it on good authority that we will probably be starting another contest as soon as this one ends.
As always, decisions of the judges are final, one entry per subscriber, by entering you are agreeing to be a subscriber if you aren’t already (what?!), no quarreling about the outcome, and employees of Just British and Robert Morey are ineligible to win. And you must answer the question and use a real email address!
The prize will be shipped out to the winner as soon as they confirm our message to them at the end of the contest. No country limits or any of that foolishness – we will ship the book to the winner wherever they may be.
