In reply to # 3239483 by madonesi Hi everyone, my name is Simon, I'm a brit living in Seattle area, just bought my first MGA, 1962 MkII 1600 which I am calling project 'Larry' due to I am lucky enough to had known the previous owner Larry who passed away over a year ago, who bought this MGA over 35 years go as a very run down MGA (non runner) and over the years has spent a lot of time and money restoring the MG, until he had accident and then the car was only used now and again over the last decade. Working with our close friend Larry's wife Jody over the last 6 months Jody gave me her blessing to buy the car and finish the car, which funny enough my view on finish the MGA is very close to what Larry wanted smiling smiley

Due to I am somewhat of a car nut and Jody saw the love and passion I have for the MGA, I am very happy to be the new owner and finish the MGA and make it better.

I will over the coming weeks publish more on the MGA as I have a full book of pictures of the work done it, plus several manual, books, as well as various tool boxes and spare parts, I've got a lot of work to do to go through it all.

The MGA is safely in the garage under a cover right now, but here is picture of it taken on Saturday.



My plans for this weekend, is to go through the large paperwork to find out all the details of work done, parts replaced and then list out what I need to check, confirm and start list of parts I need, Servicing parts, as I will be going from front to back of the car, replacing, filters, oil, fluids, bleeding, greasing, etc, etc.. I do enjoy this part smileys with beer

I hope to update this thread as often as possible and I welcome all feedback and advice from everyone, as I am sure I am going to learn a lot from this forum and its members, just spending last few days on the forum, I'm already knowledge overloaded, look forward to hopefully getting to know you all more, even meet you at meets, road trips and general chit chat on here.

I would be interested in knowing where everyone buys there parts from - Moss Motors seems to come up a lot as good source for OEM.

thanks Simon
The fun of owning a MGA makes my face hurt, from smiling all the time!
