always needed fixing

The 52 TD  was joined a few years later by a 
70 BGT (given to me  free with tons of rust) I restored it and still have
79 B Convert. Bought it at an insurance auction (usuall fire under hood)
and                restored it
                                                            80 B limited
edition (bought by insurance company after  some teenage girl
    wiped out the 79B  Still have it

Still have it

47 TC  I restored it and it is almost mint  Still have it
54 TF  Bought with next door neighbor to run the 1986 Ocean to Ocean New
England MGT Register 7500 mile endurance run. After the run. I bought out
my neighbors interest.  Still have it and go everywhere with it (Canada,
England, all over the US)
34 PA (in restoration 3 years) Sold the TD to get it

My oldest son has a 58 MGA Coupe

Please note that I have been collecting and restoring MGs since 1973 and I
can't part with them. It truly is an illness.
