The problem is that your MGA does not have the type of rear view mirror you can hang a pine-scented car freshener or even fuzzy dice from...

Im not a fuzzy dice person
I was thinking more of a pair of long horns for the hood and a pair of balls to drag in rear

Well, a little more seriously, what sort of parts are you seeking?

They are not likely to have gaskets or even ignition parts on the shelf but they might be able to order them. (but so can you - go to any of the MG parts suppliers and they'll ship your order to your door).

I recently bought a starter at Advance Auto... took a day to get but it only cost $50. At that price I could blow through 4 of them before I hit the Moss price point.

Scroll down to the "parts suppliers" section. Most of the parts for the A (or any 50 year old car) are ordered these days.

I haven't had much luck at any of the regular car parts places. I've found things like heater hose, fuses, and fluids, but not much more than that.

I've got a TROLLing motor that would go well with a 58 DeLuxe MGA Coupe.
