It's halloween and what could be spookier than the prospect of overheating.. ok maybe not, it's bloody freezing here. All the same we're very happy to announce that we finally have aluminium radiators in stock for MG TB TC TD. We've had the tops pressed to mimmick the originals and once they're painted it's very hard to tell. Early reports are good, we've a small batch in stock with plans to manufacture more in January. Priced at £675.00 inc VAT.

September already, time flies. It seems strange to say but we're not going to Angouleme this year, with a hectic building schedule we just couldn't spare the time. I will make up for it next year when I enter my new TA special "Sacre Bleu".
You may have noticed that we have been a bit quiet on the car sales front this year, I have been focussing my attentions on a couple of large kit orders...Read Full Post »

I was very kindly invited by the new owners of the "Big Red" TA special which I built last year to watch them at the Jersey International Motoring Festival. They had also previously purchased my white TC racer and both entered the event with Graham in "Big Red" and Lynn in the TC.
I am fortunate enough to keep in touch with the majority of my clients and always enjoy receiving photographs and stories but this was a ...Read Full Post »

Many of you may already know that the annual MG "T-Register" rebuild seminar is fast approaching and I'm pleased to be able to tell you that I'll be there speaking on the subject of supercharging the XPAG engine.
The event is on the 23rd of March at the Heritage Motor Centre, Gaydon, Warwickshire, it's a full day out with a number of speakers, lunch and "bring & buy" spares & regalia tables. Anyone interested in attending should contact Alan Wa...Read Full Post »

Happy new year everyone. It's been a cold start to 2013 but we've still been busy!
Since I last posted here we were lucky enough to find a lovely old, numbers matching, English MG TC which had just returned from a 40 year holiday in Europe. She was sold before we had time to update the website and it seems there is still a strong interest in our humble MGs.
Big Red has been delivered to it's new home, complete with wings and headlamps fitted. I'm real...Read Full Post »

We've just returned from another manic weekend at the circuit-des-Remparts in Angouleme and I must say I enjoyed every minute of it. The weather was glorious and there were two really strong grids of interesting pre-war cars. It was a real struggle for me to be ready in time but "Big Red" as she's become known was worth the wait and looked every bit the part in the pitlane:
As it transpired it...Read Full Post »

It's depressing outside and so I've found myself locked in the garage. There's a lot going on at the moment as I am assembling two kits for clients and have mean greenie nearing completion (although it may not be green!) and big red hoping to make it's first outing at Angouleme in September.
With regard to the kits, I often feel that people don't know the full extend of what we get up to. We often supply parts to complete a build and have access to a bewildering number...Read Full Post »

By the time I managed to put this car up for sale there was already a gentleman waiting outside my front door wanting to buy it, must be worthy of a mention on the blog then! So nice to see a fully restored MG TC done to such a high standard and I am pleased that it has gone to a gentleman with an engineering background who can keep her on song. I must also say that it is nice to sell a car to a local gent, as I have been spending a lot of time on the road recently.

Now sold, this 1948 MG TC which had been subject to a lengthy and expensive bare chassis rebuild. Required paint, trim & wiring to complete. A beautiful project for someone to take on, with much of the hard work already done. All panels had been repaired and fitted and the car also benefitted from a new body tub and chrome work. The gauges and,engine had been rebuilt, the car had new tyres..the list went on and on. Well over ...Read Full Post »

Mean greanie has had the chassis checked, straightened and repaired where necessary and as you can see is looking a lot better for it. I have had everything repainted to ensure a top quality finish. I have also fitted new leaf springs. The braking system is being overhauled with new wheel cylinders and a new master cylinder, the shoes have gone away to be relined. The steering arms and the front axle have been chromed, I am taking my time to make sure everything is right on this car. B...Read Full Post »
