Why do Brits prefer their beer warm? Because Lucas made their refrigerators. :-)

I believe their motto was - 'A hard day's work and home before dark.'

I've got one new in the box, probably 60's?

Why do the British drink warm beer?

Lucas refrigerators.

...you guys can make all the Lucas jokes you want. :mad:
But I learned a whole lot about troubleshooting Auto electrical systems from Driving a Sunbeam Alpine GT for a few years.


It was that or walk.

At least the rats appreciated the electrical harness on the 1955 MGA 1500 my dad gave me as a high school "project" car, back in the late 70's....:rolleyes::rolleyes:
Like most British classic sports cars, it was a real beauty, but a PITA to keep on the road, not knowing what other electrical bug eill come up or if it will stop at the next stoplight (Hello Dunlop brakes!)......
Lucky for me thst it had a rust free body (a miracle with any MG) or we would have sold it for junk.....

A Lucas light switch has 3 positions: Flicker, Dim, and Off. :)
