That is a cute car, mine was that color scheme originally, now MG Red with black interior.

I guess Red was popular 20 years ago.

Purina.

Old joke-

A guy was buying a bag of Purina Dog Chow at WalMart when the woman behind him asked what kind of dog he had. "I don't have a dog." he replied, "That's for me."
"Really?" the woman replied.
"Yeah," the man responded. "It's the Dog Chow weight loss program. Worked pretty well for a while, but I ended up in the hospital. Thought I'd give it another try."
"Digestive problems?"
"No."
"Inadequate nutritional balance?"
"No, nothing like that."
"Then what was it?"
"Well, after eating Dog Chow for about six weeks I was sitting in the middle of the road one day licking my privates when I got hit by a truck."

Nearing the end of a 3 year rebuild. Garages are small here and real estate is pricey. Builders build garages for micro cars and little else. Car has been rebuilt one side at a time with a "wheelie bin" as a stand up workbench. Just wanted to catch up with the rest of you and show the world what can be achieved with a TA.

Great work and an interesting colour. I sympathise with your lack of space - I found it restricting in a double garage.

Tom,

Very nice looking car. That's a fantastic colour, one we don't see over here.

1938 MG TA "The Beast"
Wednesday 6.08.17
Just the monthly trip to the Tiger Noggin in Beverley by shorter way, late getting off, rain clouds coming home. 33.5 mile total.

Sunday 10.09.17
Forecast from beginning of week said 3.5 hours of heavy rain so did not arrange to go oh a run. However woke up reasonably early and it was cool but sunny so decided to go to the meet anyway. Goggle said 2hours 25 mins and I was not ready until 7.35 - the event started at Ten so could just about make it.Best route took me along York by-pass, Thirsk Northallerton and back roads to Scotch Corner then along the A66 to the meet. I made it with about 15 mins to spare. Not bad -I had to stop to switch on my reserve petrol supply
Ten fill up in Thirsk. Then after the others (about 40 of them- TA through to new type TF) set off home with the intention of going up Sutton Bank and over the top But approaching Thirsk I could see heavy rain on the top so came back the rest of the way on the low roads. Stopped at York by-pass and parked up in the large car park to eat a big Mac meal and several strangers came up for a good talk about the car. Arrived home opened the doors, put the TA in as the storm broke. Timed it well! 220 miles total.

Nick,
That's a great write up! Here in Florida it's too dang hot most of the time to plan an impromptu 220 mile trip! At least in the TD. I really enjoy those reports of driving vintage MGs on the back roads of the U.K. My mother grew up in Bournemouth, and whenever we'd visit family there I always marveled at the number of vintage cars still on the road!

Thanks Larry, I do not plan very much, basically because I do not have a roof just a flat cap and a jacket. The run proved one thing though, the TA will cruise at 70mph plus now, it would not before I opened up the bore of one of the petrol delivery unions (to the rear carb) from a bare 3mm up to 5.5mm.
Regards.
