Yes I remember the Flying Shingle.  Being a died in the wool T type MG
person it was one of my favorites.  In the late 50s Road and Track did an
article on it and had a picture of Ken Miles sitting in the tube chasses.  I
made a CAD rendition of the chassis using the standard TD wheel base a tread
as my reference.  I think it came out pretty well and have it hanging on the
wall of my shop.
Press on regardless,
1950 & 1953 TDs
