    Good luck with the sale Mickey, although I hate to see any of the modified guys selling their cars.

    Very interesting Mickey. My shop partner's grandson is putting a 3.4 V6 into his MGB in our shop right now.

    Great - he's gonna love it! If he's not already tuned in, here's a great resource: http://forum.britishv8.org/

    And he can always contact me if he'd like.

    Thanks Mickey. I'll pass that along. He is a senior at OU so we probably won't see him much until spring.

    Good luck with the sale, Mickey. Sad to see that one going from your little collection, but I can certainly understand.

    Good luck Mickey. I'd bid on it but then I'd need to take out a loan from you to pay for it.

    Really enjoyed following this auction. Thought your thoughtful answers to bidders/lookers questions gave confidence to those considering "going for it". Think (as they say) it was well sold, well bought. Congratulations Mickey.

    Thanks, guys - nail biter for sure.

    I'd received a couple of messages from the winning bidder. In one he said he was getting ready to be in the car and wouldn't be able to make any last minute bids. So he threw out his top dollar. Reserve had been met, and bidding ended up right about where I was hoping it would
