 Membership     JIM KRIZ
                                                           For the first time in years I went to the Auto Show. I went on the 12th because it
                612-374-2666                           was the only day it was open all day and also because it was geezer day thus a
                jkriz1@comcast.net                     ticket only cost 4 bucks. The first thing you notice is the beautiful light grey carpet

      Editor    6554 Kingfisher Lane                   perfectly clean. And this was the 5th day of the show!
                Eden Prairie, MN 55346                           Where do I go first ? I just started walking thru this huge display of
                952-294-4314                           SUV's, massive pickups, conversion vans, and pricey German sedans. I did find
                                                       two Mazda Miata's, one at $21k and the other with a folding steel top at $26k. They

      Publisher                                        a Saturn Sky at 39 big ones, apparently because it has a custom grill and some sort
                                                       of fancy doors, which you were asked not to open. Ouch! I did see the Dodge
Video Librarian   JIM WOJCIK                           Demon which was surrounded by ropes. I was interested because the car mags
                  651-653-4523                         had hinted it would go on the market at $15,000. It looked good, competitive with the
                                                       Pontiac Solstace or the Saturn Sky. The salesperson there didn't seem very excited
                  jvwojcik@comcast.net                 over it, but I would be at 15thou. By now it was lunch time and I was hungry and

                  952-929-4792                         and they had beer for sale at an unknown price . But where does one sit? The few

   Broadcaster    651-489-3157                                     I remembered a sign by the entrance saying sports cars and antique cars
                                                       were on the 2nd floor. The first thing you see are vendors selling car wax, model

                  715-262-9813                         The antique cars were in another unmarked side room and it was filled with really
                  glauser@pressenter.com               nice cars and one motorcycle; an HD 45 in full military dress just like it was in 1943.

         Delegate 651-292-8585                         ever seen. I was in the brown shoe army in the 50's, but by then the peace time

          TECH SESSION at Jeff Lumbard Workshop                                      by Rod Richert



On Saturday, March 15th, MAHC members and guests saw and heard the best of Jeff Lumbard's steel
fabrication experience. Jeff says that his restoration planning involves balancing time required vs. cost.
It's sometimes best to buy a reproduction part instead of investing hours or days refurbishing the
original. Steel seat bases were given as an example.

Skill in welding is a key. Toll Gas & Welding Supply offer classroom and hands-on classes at 3005
Niagara Lane, Plymouth, MN 55447. Contact Thea Bunde at (763)551-5308 or email:thea@tollgas.com.

Jeff buys his sheet metal stock from the unheated storage bins at Garelick Steel. It's self-serve, but Dan
Powell agrees with Jeff that a little kindness toward the young workers there will reap benefits.

A few tips: Have a variety of grinders of different grits ready to save time.
           Wear PPD's--eye protection and respirator.
           For templates, Jeff tapes together file folders.

All the wiser: Wayne Soderbeck, Tom Moerke, Chuck Norton, Don Heath, Ron Corazzo, Herb Miller, Dan
Powell, Mike Martin, Randy Byboth, Larry Nimmerfroh, Rod Richert, Dave Lee and guests Dennis and Paul
Karlstad.




Congratulations Randy

Healey club member Randy Byboth's car was featured in the vintage racer section of
The 2008 Twin Cities Auto Show at the Minneapolis Convention Center.
The car is a 1962 Austin Healey Sprite MKII in full race prep. It
boasts 110hp out of a performance enhanced 1275CC engine that originally
didn't make 50hp in stock configuration. Randy has made MANY performance
enhancements to the drivetrain as well as the suspension.IX

Barb Ronning says that the Mathew's know how to pick their days for the wine and cheese party--"It always seems to be
sunny!" Two dozen club members and guests looked out over the snowy slopes of Theodore Wirth Park and sampled
over a dozen wines, many more cheeses and a variety of savoy goodies including Curt Carlson's marinated garlic cloves.
Photo albums of Mike and Gloria Lynch's South American trip, Barb and Gary Ronning's days in Mazatlan and polished
aluminum components of Dick Mathew's latest Jaguar masterpiece shared the table with Curt's printout of the State of
Minnesota's collector plate regulations. In attendance and not already mentioned: Tom and June Moerke, Steve Rixen
and Kim Kiser, Rich and Liz Stadther. Chuck and Jean Norton, Mike Martin, Jan Huston, Wayne Soderbeck, Larry
Nimmerfroh, Sherry Wilkening, Jim and Rose Klein, Ron Corazzo, Mark and Lisa Swan, Lisa Mathews and Darrell Pearson.

Rendezvous '08 in Pinawa, Manitoba is about 1/4 full with Tom and June Moerke being the 24th confirmed reservation.
Reservation and room questions are being fielded by Ann Blonski at (204)883-2215 or annmark@mts.net or general

Concerns were voiced about border ID requirements upon return to the U.S. and Canadian computer searches of visitor's
driving histories. As of January 31, 2008, the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol website states that the transition to the
Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative Secure Document Implementation will occur no earlier than June 1st 2009. Single
document (passport) or dual document (driver's license and birth certificate) identification suffice. But stay tuned and

This 3 BR 3 Bath 2400 square foot easy access Home was built in late 1999 on 3.3 ± acres in Hudson
Township. Zoning as Rural-Residential means the land is as flexible as the open floor plans of the house and
shop. The location a few miles outside the city of Hudson gives you the quality and feel of the country and
access to the best benefits of the Cities.

Built as a retirement home, there are no steps required to access the house or shop. The floor plan lends itself
to flexibility through a 600 SF ‘bonus’ portion of the house being utilized as an entertainment area, an office, a
studio, guest suite or in-law’s apartment.

Features include multi-zoned in-floor natural gas hot water heat, whole house heat-exchange Van-E ventilation
system and central air conditioning, central vacuum, easy access laundry, birch built-ins, living area vaulted
ceilings, large, open kitchen areas with external exit high capacity stove fans, natural finish ceiling height birch
cabinets and generous birch front pantry, Fiber-Optic cable TV service to house and shop and RJ-45 8 wire
computer hub connectivity is provided throughout the house and shop.

There are 3 generous attached garage spaces attached to the house, a double which is fully insulated and
equipped with a heater as well as a direct entry bathroom for use as a mud / clean-up room, and a large
separate single garage accessed through the bonus living area.

Meadow and wild flowers cover much of the generous lot which has an insulated garden shed equipped with its
own deck and adjacent garden and planting areas.

Bring your hobbies or business to the 40 X 72 foot with 10’ walls (40 X 48 insulated and heated) shop which has
an 8 foot door double garage door, 2 post automotive lift, (12’ raised ceiling area) 6 HP air compressor, 220 V
electrical service, office area, cabinets and shelves.

House has its own well and septic system. Koi pond, (no Koi or other fish), fire pit and enclosed patio currently
exist.

Optional, negotiable items may include all appliances, washer and dryer, some furniture, recently purchased 23
HP, 46 inch deck Husquvarna lawn tractor, Dodge ¾ ton pick-up with new 88 inch snow plow, hand and power
tools and, possibly, a British Car project of your choice, (limited to those on hand).

Contact Steven Rixen, 612-877-1938 to arrange a viewing, advise, consult, discuss animals, options, BS, talk
cars, airplanes, or negotiate shop use, LBC project and / or the asking price of $339,445.49 (Appraised at

There are times when I am in the classroom, sometimes in a distant time zone with my cell phone off, so leave
a message and / or contact me at; scrixen@gmail.com .

Why am I selling? It was our dream home and I am alone here now, working, traveling for weeks at a time and
can’t justify my rattling around in all this space when I am here, trying to keep up with the snow, the grass, the
yard work.

It should be your dream home. Let’s talk.
