MGTC and MGTF1500
Hi All, Bought my first "old car" at 16-I`m 76 (1936 MGTA} been covered in oil and grease virtually ever since but purely as a hobby. No racing just fun driving etc - although I did drive round the 24 Hour Le Mans circuit in a Morgan I owned at the time with my wife screaming "let me out" when visiting the 24 hour Classic. I`ve had a wide range of cars from a 1931 Sedanca Rolls to a boat tail Morris but my real love has stayed with MGs. I`ve owned a number over the years and currently have a 1955 MGTF1500 and a 1948 MGTC which I`m rebuilding ( dashboard and miscellaneous parts currently on the kitchen floor!!!!-patient wife) all be it in a very now what have I forgotten to do and perhaps I should have had it professionally resprayed. But I don`t worry what others think I`m enjoying myself. Plans for this year are beginning of June tour to the Classic at Laon in France and then on to the Black Forest plus a trip in Sept. to the classic at the Circuit des Ramparts at Angouleme in France followed by a trip through the Pyrenees to Spain returning home via Santander to Plymouth. All driving suggestions welcome. Cheers

1949 MG TC
Hello fellow T Type owner. Are you still with this forum? I would be interest to know how you feel about rebuilding a basket case TC. Do you think it should have mods or kept original? My car was in bits and needed a new body not much original left but it does have a matching numbers engine.
