WHO ARE WE?-- We are British Sports car enthusiasts just like yourself.
Founder & Chief Engineer
Dan currently owns three British Sports cars - two Triumph TR6s and one MGBGT. We believe in driving these cars - we don't own them just for show. Dan has driven his cars on many trips of 500-1000-1500 or more miles each way, and insists that they be completely reliable and dependable. Not just mechanically, but electrically as well - no Lucas jokes here!
All well and good, but what does that have to do with you, a potential buyer of our products? Just this: Dan is a retired electrical engineer with over 40 years experience in the electrical field, including over 15 years of involvement with British car electrical systems. He began his career as a radar technician in the US Air Force, and then went on to earn a BSEE from the University of Tennessee. He then spent 28 years as an Instrumentation and Controls engineer for the Tennessee Valley Authority, designing electrical systems for nuclear power plants to the stringent requirements of the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission. Company downsizing gave him the opportunity to take early retirement to do what he loves best - play with his cars!
Dan has applied his education and experience, both electrical design experience and the experience of British car ownership, to the design and implementation of the wiring systems and auxiliary circuits we sell. These are the first - and the only - systems designed specifically for MGs and Triumphs.
Dan has Hosted the "Back to the Smokys" Excursions, Twice for Our Friends of the British V8 Club (2003 & 2006) in the Beautiful Smoky Mountains... and Last, But not Least--
to the Dragon's Tail on US 129 ;-)
