MG TD TF 1500 - For those of you thinking about going to Reno
|Might find this interesting. Found by Dan "Dangerfield" Craig. Coming right through my town. |
|Thats Cool Laverne. If I am able to, that would be a great way to go. Think of the traffic jams we could create with a couple of miles of MG's|
|That would be Hwy. 50 - the same one that goes through Gunnison, 30 miles from me? Boy, I don't know LaVerne. Mid summer driving through the desert in these things??!! I know, it's been done before - but. Wonder what kind of support vehicles are involved? Is Moss providing a truck full of fuel pumps?|
|I think the heat will be a problem in some areas. September or October would be a little more forgiving. We went on a 600 mile convoy a few years back in fairly modern vehicles and had some break downs, I can't imagine how many there will be in these old cars going coast to coast. Would love to do it, but there's no way we could take a month off for the trip. PJ|

|The heat in CO can't be much worse that it was in Gatlinburg.|
Starting in the southern part of NC, the temp rose to 90° and moved higher as we got into the Smokies with opressive humidity. 4 or 5 days of daytime temps in the 95° range.
I removed my fan years ago and have run an electric fan and Water Wetter, and had absolutely no problems.

|I guess that someone in Maryland doesn't realize the where US 50 crosses Nevada it is known as the the lonliest road in America. Just thought I would mention it.|
Due to living in Colorado I have made over 20 desert crosings in TC's and Td's to attend GoF West, including US 50. It is no picnic but it is always interesting, especially after a 300 mile drive in 110 degree heat.
Like Laverne says just make sure your radiator is up to the task.
I think the people from Utah will also be going via hwy 50 as we will have several T types going along. What is the date for the event?
|It has been 104, 105, 102 (109 in town) here all week Gordon. It can be brutal in the desert this time of year. Early June should be a little better but you never know. |
I can say that the route west of me is I-70 (replaced 6 & 50) and no services for 100 miles. After that another no services for 100 miles. Be a lot of long steep (7 percent grades) hill climbing so yes you better have your T in good shape if your doing the drive.
Only info out at this time John is this.
