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 »

It is with mixed feelings that I can report that I have finished the red MG TC I've been rebuilding over the last few months, mixed because I've rather enjoyed doing it! I think the results speak for themselves, naturally a couple of things still to tinker with (yes, I will be sorting out the tonneau!) but the car is looking spot on and I'm sure it won't be with us for long:
Those of y...Read Full Post »

Its with sadness I have to say that my father, who doubled as our chief race mechanic and Brandy taster passed away (failed scrutineering seems more apt) on the 25th of March, his birthday no less, at the age of 81.
He was a committed petrol head from a young age and I'm sure he'll have already found his place in the great MG garage in the sky. He was the reason I first stepped foot in an ...Read Full Post »

Well, no surprise to see our 1934 MG PA sold to the first gentleman to see her. We knew it was a great car, a rare opportunity to buy a complete MMM project and there was a lot of interest. We tried the engine by hand and it was free as a bird.. the chap who bought it tried the engine in earnest and we're happy to report it's running beautifully by all accounts. I'm sure the car will be back on the road in no time and I'll be very happy to see it.
In other news our TC ...Read Full Post »

What a difference a week makes. As you'll see the body has arrived back from the paintshop and I have begun fitting it to the chassis and refitting the wings. The bulkhead has come up really well, you simply can't get that finish without taking the car to a blank chassis. I will be replacing the spark plug holder with a period correct oil can to complete the look.
I'm still waiting on the arrival of the new rocker cover and haven't tackled the carburettors yet, plenty ...Read Full Post »

The restoration of our MG TC is continuing with pace and I thought I'd share some photographs so you can see how we're getting on. The rolling chassis has gone back together nicely and the fresh powder coating really sets it apart from most TCs on the market. It's good looking and durable finish that'll protect the chassis for a long time.
Marking up the brake drums made reassembling the braking system easy, although there is always some adjustment required. The system...Read Full Post »
