Yesterday my boss called me and left a message on the machine about an 
old MG he'd seen at a rummage sale (my love of MG's is apparently well 
known).  He thought probably a '50's model.  I thought probably a B or a 
TD kitcar, but decided to check it out anyway.  So after I got my 1 year 
old son and wife down for their naps, I took a ride.  Turns out to be a 
1960 MGA and it's the most beautiful car I've ever seen!  Ground up 
restoration, chrome everywhere (headlight covers, factory boot rack, 
wires, with a spare set of painted ones for bad weather).  It's red with 
a white top and red leather.  Only downsides were no tonneau, wide 
whitewalls (not my taste, but...) and $15,000.00 asking price.  If I 
bought this car my wife would have divorce papers filed before the check 
cleared.  Anyway, I told the gentleman who was selling the car I'd 
mention it on the lists, so I am.  It's located in Elmira, N.Y. and it's 
truely a beautiful car.  Now, does anyone know of a not quite so 
beautiful car (MGA) for sale in my area for maybe 1/3 of that?  Forgot to 
mention, after I looked at the MGA I went to look at a rusty '71 TR6.  It 
never stood a chance after seeing the A.  Heck, an MGF wouldn't have 
stood a chance after that (oops, didn't mean to start that thread up again)!

Thanks for listening,
