Welcome Kin...around here (NJ), I've seen a nice Morris Minor that a fellow fixed up for his daughter (he has a Bugeye, I think)....surprisingly, I've seen several used as vintage racers too.

One of my best friends moved to NC with his '58 MGA coupe, many years ago,and I know he eventually sold it.....your's isn't "grass green", is it?

Hi...good to meet you...at 6'2" and 220 lbs I know what you mean about getting into a LBC...just about the only LBC that fits is a my BJ8 Healey and it's a tight squeeze... graemlins/savewave.gif

Welcome! You have a fine collection, and it looks as if you will be able to comment on every forum on the site. Enough cars to cover all of Basil's bases. Now there's something to aspire to. images/icons/grin.gif

Hi Folks, I am new to the group and would like to introduce myself. I live in north-western North Carolina and have been a British car nut for years, having had more of them than I care to remember. Currently, I have an 85 Jaguar XJ-6 (my daily driver) that I converted to 97 Z-28 LT-1 with 4L60E engine and transmission. I did this about a year ago and have enjoyed the car immensely since -- no more wondering if its going to make the trip. Also, in the fleet is a 58 MGA Coupe, undergoing a restoration with some upgrades, and a 59 Bugeye. I am searching for a restorable Morris Minor Traveler to add to the collection to redo for my daughter -- any leads will be appreciated.

I am not a kid any more (59)and 6' 210 pounds so the MGA Coupe is getting a little hard to get in and out of, thus anyone interested in a project and you have something to trade, let me know. I will be happy to furnish a progess report on the A to any one interested.

I love to see or hear about other people's car and projects. Also, I play golf whenever I get the chance, am married, wine drinker, and a small business owner. I loook forward to corresponding or chatting about some of the topics and if anyone has questions about any of my cars/projects, just give me a shout.
