I've had a busy few weeks, thankfully most of it spent enjoying the sunshine rather than working too hard. As I mentioned before my son Luke's wedding took place in early July, I'd thought about pushing myself to put my TB back on the road in time for it but I'm glad I didn't.
We had a lovely day by the coast in south Devon, with a fantastic breakfast and reception including a boat trip up the river Dart. There really wasny any time or space for an MG (and you won't hear me ...Read Full Post »

Happy to have a new product for your perusal, I've always found cast iron brake drums to offer the best performance for our T-Type MGs, I have used them on several of my race cars over the years (and have a set on my own car currently). The problem has always been that, let's face it, they're not much to look at, especially when compared to the Alfin brake drums (which use a liner) that are readily available.
I was lucky enough to come across a period i.e. 1930s Alfin ...Read Full Post »

Currently going through the workshop, this North American MG TF which we are converting to right-hand drive.
Few blemishes in the paint but very solid overall. She's no trailer queen but a sorted and very usable car which drives extremely well. I decided against taking the trailer and drove it home and I'd recommend whoever buys her does the same.
This would be an ideal car for someone who wants a car to drive this summer that also has sco...Read Full Post »

Happy new year to you all. 2014 was a busy year for me, 2015 looks to be too. My son Luke will be getting married and I've promised to lend him my TB to drive to the venue in. Better build it then! More of that anon.
The blue TC mentioned on my previous post has found a new owner, as an airline pilot I'm sure he won't find it intimidating to drive - by chance it will be living only a few miles from where I grew up in Kent. A nice coincidence. The white TC has also found a n...Read Full Post »

You may have noticed that I've been busy on eBay of late. I purchased a job lot of items from down under and it's been a bit of an undertaking to sort through them all. I had only intended to purchase 2 cars..
The photograph below shows the carnage as we spilled out from the garage and into the yard along with one disappointed hound wondering why no one wanted to throw the ball. I will be offering the first of the cars I purchased for sa...Read Full Post »

1951 MG TD - £12,000
A rare opportunity to acquire an English, RHD, MG TD (TD2) for restoration. The car has a factory replacement XPAG engine fitted, which runs well with good oil pressure.
The car is extremely original and very complete. Doesn't look like anyone's got to it! It has the correct, original, chronometric gauges, the proper shock absorbers (and the extra front shockers from TD mark II), lots of lovely parts - even some tools and...Read Full Post »

For a long time now I've been trying to find a 6" electronic rev counter, I love the period look of the larger gauge but on a race car, frankly, it's more important that it's accurate. I ran a 5" Stack gauge on my old white TC racer because the difference between 7500RPM and 8000RPM can be about £8,000! I am therefore very happy to announce the availability of these 6" gauges, though not cheap at £525 they're worth every penny to me:

It seems like a long time since I've written a blog entry, I've been so busy in the garage that I've simply not found the time. My latest TA special, another "Mean Greenie" is nearing completion and I'm very pleased with the outcome. Especially the exhaust which has turned out better than expected. There is a link to a video of the car at the bottom of this post.
You may have seen tha...Read Full Post »
