I've been interested in old cars for many years. But, it wasn't until 2004 until I actually had one

As usual, I took the car out. Since it was nice, why not? Most of the trip was spent inside the borders of South Park, just driving around in circles. Very little traffic on the back roads, meant I could take it easy. But, some time was also spent down on Route 88 in and around Library, PA...just north of the Washington County line. 88 tends to run parallel to the old Montour RR 'Library Branch.' It was tempting to get a few photos of the GT with the MTR's old viaduct in the background. Anywa...

Well, the shop that was "restoring" the car decided to cut some corners. Not only that, but they also charged me for work that wasn't done at all! And yes, it bugs me that another summer is nearly over, and I haven't had the MG to play with. Looks like I'll ...

Very little has gone on with the car lately. It's been away, having some minor electrical issues sorted. Having to turn the dashboard lights on with the hazard light switch got a bit annoying. Plus, there was always the danger of something shorting out. Since the radio console isn't fitted, the switches just hang off into space, and could shoot sparks if I'm not careful! Hopefully, the shop is going to fit the carpets, so I can bolt the seats in properly. Up until now, only the driver's seat ...
