Similarly, Some local British car fans and I ran across a guy just last 
week that is getting up there and has a treasure trove of stuff just 
around the corner from me in Idaho Falls, ID.  We took some digital 
pictures for him of an MGA Coupe and a TR6 - They're supposet to be for 
sale on e-bay soon, and both were pretty nice - the TR6 even had air 
conditioning that wasn't a cobble job (looked like a factory add on). 
 He also had a really old dismantled rolls, a jag mkX, some engines of 
various sorts (at least two were jag engines), misc. american stuff, a 
couple MGB's in various states of dismantleship, and a triumph TR4 
sitting out in the weather - buches of other stuff too.  But the 
interesting thing was that in talking with the guy, he has a 1937 MG-TA 
at home.  He would part with any of it, but I get the idea he wants top 
dollar for everything he has.  We'll have to just see how the e-bay 
auctions are (i.e. where the reserves are set and/or where opening bid is).
