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 that the red TC has now found a new home, she will be well looked after in sunny Wales and by coincidence the new owner's initials matched the number plate. Some things are meant to be! Our two TC projects both also came and went very quickly, there seems to be a lot of interest in our humble MGs at the moment - long may it continue. The channel 4 production "For the love of cars" seems to have garnered a lot of attention, for all that's been said about the car they rebuilt it was good to see MGs in the limelight. My film making skills aren't quite up to scratch but I love driving the cars:
In the next couple of weeks I will be offering a burgundy MG TA special for sale, I have also purchased three vehicles from overseas - a TA, TB and TC in various states of disrepair which will keep me off the streets come October. I'm now thinking about letting my TB special go and building a VSCC car, it's a tease with the relatively recent acceptance of the XPAG engine but the idea of the Mille Miglia in a supercharged TB special is always playing on my mind!
I have since stopped the spare wheel from rattling, I always make sure my cars have a decent number of miles on the clock before they leave. It's the attention to detail that takes the time but makes all the difference to the finished build.
