New TF owner

I'd like to introduce myself as I have historically spent most of my time on the B Forum. I have owned a number of MGBs and GTs and one Midget, but have just recently been lucky enough to purchase a very nice TF1500 from Dennis Rainey (his handle is mgjoc on this site). Dennis has entrusted me as "Harriet"'s next caretaker and she arrived at my home in Maryland today. She and my B are getting to know one another in my garage right now. The fact that Dennis is a real class act is evidenced by the 6 pack of OSH I found in the passenger footwell when she arrived. Cheers, Dennis!

As this is my first T series car I will probably become a regular pest on this forum, at least until I learn some of the eccentricites of these cars. I thank you in advance for your patience with me as a T newbie.

Jack,

Beautiful car! Best of luck with her. Our next purchase is a B to keep the TF company.

Regards,
Peter

Looks like a great car, Jack

The cars don't have any eccentricites. The owners do though. grinning smiley

Take the time to understand what a part does and how it does it, then you'll have a better understanding of how to fix it when it goes wrong. Beats the scattergun approach every time.

From the looks of that TF you won't have reason to be a "pest." It's a beaut!

smileys with beer ... with OSH of course!
