     Cleaning up the recently-purchased 1953 MG TD 2 after a 1700-mile eventful drive from Los Angeles. In Albuquerque two of the Unser boys (Al and Bobby) spent a disdainful hour diagnosing an oil-pressure anomaly after closing time on a September Saturday. They charged $10.00 for their trouble. The consensus was: No problemo.

     And so it was.
