1938 MG TA Tickford "The TA"
1963 Ford Thunderbird "The M Car"
1967 MG MGB MkI "The B"
I accidentally just ran across this little story about the Tickford while looking for TA engine photos.

Malcolm Appleton's 1932 MG F1 Magna Stiles Special Threesome took class honors that day, and deservedly so.

Get a buffer on a stand instead. MUCH more working room! Harbor Freight

I am the wrong side of the pond! My wife and I were the US in December 2014 and joy of joys, I found a Harbor Freight on the road from Williamsburg to Washington DC. Tools were half the price and twice the quality of the ones in the UK so my bag came home with Drills, Fretsaw and Hacksaw blades, cutting discs etcetera.

We live in a house built just 10 years ago with a single garage. You need to translate the estate agent's (realtor's) adjectives:

Small = Does not fit any car known to man
Wide = Wide enough for a car but not long enough
Long = Long enough for a car but you cannot open the doors
Single = May just be usable
Medium sized = Might get a pre-war cycle car in it
Generous = Size to fit a car but the builder has put service ducts in it so you cannot use it. Also covers Triangular.
Double = Adequate for one car and a motorbike.


I restored my car in a single garage and sadly have no room for a buffer on a stand. One day my lottery numbers will come good.

I have a buffing wheel on a grinder and there are safety issues. Until you use one you have no idea how easy it is have whatever it is snatched out of your hand, or even dragged with it into whatever obstruction is nearby. Good reason therefore to mount it so that it overhangs a bench as much as possible. They also fling a lot of detritus about.

Thanks for the advice. I know not to wear a tie! It must be 45 years since I used one and thinking about my experience then, I may have experienced what you described. It was my copper-smithing test piece which made a short and unscheduled parabolic flight across the workshop.

Also, do NOT wear a jacket, long sleeves or loose clothing

Out on Sunday at Saltburn Historic Motor Gathering. Great weather and lovely cars. There is some T content.

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.

Owen,

It seems that you have been absent from the forum for a while. Great to see that you and "Numbum" are still out there wreaking havoc upon the byways. Great film.

Glad you liked the video, Charles.

Life has got in the way of fun for most of this year which is why I haven't been about much. We haven't done much with Numbum as it's been suffering from a random misfire at higher revs and although it's running better now it's still not right so investigation is ongoing.

What's the background on the MGB LaVerne? Looks really nice. Tartan red? Tempted to get one myself.

It's a 69 I put together 25 years ago out of 5 cars.... 72 engine and OD gearbox. Super charged. 68 interior. It had about 5 resprays of red when I brought it home. I'm not really big on red but since that was what it was originally I stripped it and put red back on it. Actually a Ford color...called hot red.
