About charlieoc’s Garage


About me and my passion for cars

Member of small group of individuals who started up British car club in North Central Florida (North Florida British Motoring Club). Also a member of national Austin Healey club and Antique Automobile Car Club. Currently own a 1971 MGB/GT, 1959 Austin Healey Sprite and a 1959 Austin Healey 3000 BT7.

My first car

My first car was a 1967 MG 1100 which did an excellent job of getting me through high school. That was followed by a 1971 MGB/GT and then a 1973 Triumph TR6. Yes, I like British cars.

Car I wish I still had

I had purchased a 1980 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40 new while living on the island of Guam. I made a big mistake selling it in 1986. If we could just go back in time.

My dream car

My completed Austin Healey 3000

Car clubs I’m in

North Florida British Motoring Club, Tallahassee, Florida
Austin Healey Club USA
Antique Automobile Club of America (AACA)

A couple of months ago I had a fuel problem that, after a great deal, was resolved by reseating the coil cable. Easy once you figure it out. Then, a couple weeks ago I took the Austin Healey out for a ride and didn't get more than 1/2 mile before it died...

At our monthly car club meeting last night, we had a local detailing professional provide us with a presentation on detailing our cars for both show and street. Needless to say, we learned a lot. The most important lesson was that I have been doing it...
