The M&G auction is not a gimmick. M&G has a large stock of NOS components
they bought when BL closed it's does... they have been trying to liquidate
that inventory for quite some time. Over the years it seems M&G's focus has
moved from parts and restoration to auto sales under the direction of the
owner's son. While I dislike the management, and think they're kind of
scummy and often rude, there are probably some deals to be had.
There will be some unique cars available. Possibly even a 1951 RHD XK120 SE
that was pulled out of a garage Friday, and I spent cleaning off and getting
it mobile Saturday, may be present. Remarkably straight and complete, and
has SCCA racing history.
It's been a good barnfind year... so far was involved with a MG PA (burnt
out) in the winter, '61 Triumph Herald still with original tyres and top and
a damn near perfect body, and then the XK120 this week. :-) I'll get pics
of the XK120 up, but for now you can see the Herald (now owned by Andy Mace)
You may want to note that plastic protective trim panel sheet is still
mostly on the passenger door trim panel in one of the shots!
