Well it's been a very stranger winter here, unable to welcome clients I've been locked away in the garage which means there has been plenty of progress.
First up, you may recall that I've been working this MG TB slab tank special fitted with a modified aluminium K-Type body. It's been a joy to work on and I'm very pleased with the result. I really love the panelwork and the colour sets it off beautifully too. I can thoroughly recommend the services of Stanton Motorsport for anyone looki...Read Full Post »

Written 02/05/2020 - my apologies we've had some issues uploading to our website.
There's rather a lot less going on here that I would like at the moment, with Luke away and many suppliers closed. It is very frustrating but of course understandable, let's hope we're past this Covid-19 situation sooner than later and back to normality.
Having completed o...Read Full Post »

Thought a few of you might be interested to see this MG PA we've just finished and sold. Of course we regularly build pointed tail T-Type cars but a MMM is a bit of a departure from the norm and was an interesting challenge.
We were lucky enough to pick up an old Peter Gregory tub which saved a lot of head scratching. The o...Read Full Post »

Every year I find myself wondering how another summer has gone so quickly. We've been busy here, finishing a TA special with a K3 inspired slab tank body as well as working on a couple of big kits which have been sent abroad. Here's the TA/K3 special, similar to my old race car - I absolutely love this dark blue colour:

Well I've not been very good at updating the blog but plenty has been happening here. We've had a few cars come and go already this year, ranging from a TF1500 to a full blown TB racecar as well as the usual TCs and Q-Type specials. I rather like this photo I took of a completed TA Q-Type build earlier this month, I had to be a bit creative leaning out of the window to take it!

I would like to start this post by acknowledging the sad death of Denis Derex at this year's event. I did not know Denis but he was, clearly, an incredibly popular guy who's death cast a big shadow over the weekend. My condolences of course go to Denis's family and many friends.
This time we decided to enter my son Luke's MG TB special, which has been rebuilt over the last few year. We had originally planned to re-fit the wings and headlamps but time was against u...Read Full Post »

It's been a busy couple of months for us here, the builders are back in and Luke has just moved house meaning there's parts and cars everywhere. Most of our time in the workshop is being spent on building our MG PA to Q specification. It's a project I've wanted to do for a long time and I'm glad to finally have the chance to tackle a MMM car. It'll have a pre-selector gearbox, supercharger, all the bells and whistles. She's looking well but there's a long way to go:

As September rolls around we normally turn our attention to the Circuit-des-Remparts in Angouleme and this year was no different. I really enjoy visiting France and this race has a special place in my heart. Hundreds of cars turn out for the rally each year and there's events throughout the weekend including the Concours d'elegance on the Friday night. My wife, Sandie, and I set off a bit early this year. We made our way down from Calais stopping at Bernay and Le Mans (briefly) and I think th...Read Full Post »

I had a great time at MG Live at Silverstone this weekend and in truth I enjoyed the journey down every bit as much as the event. The sun was shining and I made a last minute decision not to take the van but to drive down in our red MG TC. It was definitely the right call, although next time I'll wear a hat (I look like a beetroot this morning).

January's been a busy month for us and I hope it continues in to the year. We've been all over the country (and further afield) collecting and delivering cars and are continuing to find new upgrades and parts for our beloved MG T-Types. Our latest arrival are the pictured H-section Saenz Con-Rods - I have been extremely impressed with their quality and, whilst they would be overkill for the road, the originals can be a weak point for a tuned or race engine. They are £900 for a set of fou...Read Full Post »
