Hi, fellow MG owners.
He's here at last. Rex, the '72 Special Tuning BGT has come back home at
last. For those who missed the tale, a friend had bought the car, spent
all his money on wax polish and none on Waxoyl. Result? Car rotten and
Friend 2 bought the car and spent a year doing a full body rebuild-new
floorpans, RH wing and chassis rail. bulkhead ends, etc, etc.
Now the car is back with me in a rather grubby condition, after a year's
use ungaraged. Spent the weekend repairing a small grot hole in the LH
wing and fitting a new front skirt in place of the trashed ST
spoiler-also fitted a new tailgate latch today.
First impressions after all this time: goes like stink, makes a hell of
a racket-stainless exhaust with a cherry bomb in the middle-and is
terrific fun. Some mechanical work needed-carb needles shot so tickover
mixture v. rich, axle also noisy under load. But....Rex is back and he's
BTW the registration is REX 804K, hence the name.
