  • Close encounter of the first kind...

A co-worker sez to me: "Hey Terrence! You've got an MG, don't you?... My fiance's mother has an MGA 1600 that was her first car. It's in pretty rough shape: she drove it all the time up until she got pregnant with her daughter - my fiance... so it's been in the same spot in the garage for 39 years!" Shirley is the name of the P.O. so I thought it was a good name for the "A" to inherit. (My wife pointed out that another certain "Pink Lady" shared the same first name too!)

My plan is to strip her down and do a full resto, following MGA Guru's advice. Initial expectation is to reuse as much as possible. Years from now, ideally with my son (now 2 years old), we'll tackle upgrades.
