And all of the Pictures do not show the hood, the top or the side curtins. They are all there, top is a disaster, side curtains are 3 not 4.  I am searching for one rear side curtain and the hardware for the back of the seat

I was invited to the races at LIME ROCK Connecticut in the summer. The races are sponsored by the SPCCA or the Sports Car Club of America.  There, amongst the pit crews, I was staying in my tent next to my fellow car enthusiast Dan G. from up over the hill. (actually he is my neighbor).

As Dan, had tickets to some of some parties and access to all of the pits where the cars are prepared, I thought it would be fun. After all of my times at motorcycles, there was always the collection of Triumph cars that I have had in the garage.

When I was younger, I had always thought that the coolest car running around was the MG TD. At Lime Rock, not only were some of the racing cars MG TA, MG TB, MGTC and the MG TD. The MC TD was the only car of the group made after WWII. It was a little wider and shorter than it’s predecessors, but basically was the same car.

There it was, arriving on the 2ND day of the races at the flea market, a real running, unrestored car. After examining it, an driving it around the track. It was purchased. After purchasing the automobile, I left it on display with the many other MGs that were lined up that day.  The car next to me was a recently restored 1955 MG TF.  The man and his wife, had spent many hours doing quite a nice job.  I was very impressed, perhaps that’s the way I will go in the future.  Later that month I was at a motorcycle rally for BMWs in southern New Jersey.  There is a sports car race track their and I decided I would visit on Saturday.  Again there were restored MG TD’s and they were quite nice.  One was very unique as the body and the frame was from an MG TD but all of the running gear was from a later MG B. the engine had been replaced along with all of its selector: running gear and radiator.  I proceeded to have a conversation with the owner, and the reason that he made change over was to get a more responsive engine, a higher geared transmission so that he could run the MG TD on the road as a regular driver.  If you hadn’t known that it was done he would never have realized that the change was accomplished.

Now what am I to do with it. As it runs good and all of the electrics work, I am thinking that it would be best to leave it the way it is and just drive it.

OK, wrong thought, as of June 15th all apart in the Garage, now redoing the whole car.

NOW you see what I have gotten myself into. I guess I can never be happy with the Status Quo, just thinking about leaving things alone drives me Nuts. My employees, when I was the owner of Keystone Printed Specialties Co. Inc, always would be kept in a state of delight by my “Pot Stirring’. Certainly, leaving status Q was not my fortay.  Making thing happen always will be the way to go for me.
