Well, I had found a complete front end, radiator, doors and seats on E-Bay. The parts are located in Mobile, AL, and the price was right ($350.00 for all), but the shipping was going to kill me... $2,200.00.

Got in contact with a truck driver from a motorcycle forum who has offered to pick up the parts and deliver them to Las Vegas, for free!!!!! He drives between Florida and California. So, in about 2 weeks, I'll have the major part of the car I need begin a restore!

I was checking out the motor, which unbelievably is still free. I had to go to the machine shop to pick up my flywheel for my MG, and on the wall was a picture of a GT6 being raced. It turns out the machine shop owner built the motor for the car back in the '70's. So, I guess I know who'll be seeing another GT6 motor in the future...

Wow, you lucked out all around on that eBay deal! I'm a bit surprised you could even get the front end for that kind of money. Hope it all works out....

Sometimes a plan just falls into place, doesn't it? Sounds like it was meant to be!

Thanks for the offer TD.... Right now though, i'm just gathering parts as I have to finish my Midget and get her out of the garage. Won't be too much longer, gonna be setting the motor and trans in the little MG this weekend.
