    MG My All Time Favorite Car

    Submitted by ByJohn Simpson ( @brother john ) My love affair with British cars began in 1953 when I was thirteen years old. One of the young men back from the Korean War had a 52 MGTD in his driveway, and that did it. It was lithe, lively, low, and sexy. I think it was that TD, and not the...

    Radiator drain

    Hello all, New member here... I'm working to get my 57 TR3 back on the road after sitting for 23 years. Last night I went to drain the radiator (in car) and remove the drain petcock which was stuck, so I could clean and restore it. It twisted off but instead of unscrewing, it brought with it...

    TR2/3/3A Sheet metal question,

    Greetings All, I’m in the market for some sheet metal and looking for reviews on Moss vs TRF or other vendors. I learned “from this forum” that the battery box from TFR is superior to Moss’s, so that’s where I’m going for that. Now I need floor pans, outer sills and possibly front inner...

    TR2/3/3A Rookie mistake,

    TR2/3/3A Engine tear down,

    This 1960 TR3 has been sitting 40 years. As you can see the accumulation of crud and rust has made disassemble difficult. Does anyone have any suggestions for “loosening” up this crud to make getting the cam, pistons and sleeves out any easier?? PB Blaster and a torch only go so far at getting...

    Hi there. I have a 56 TR3 that my dad and I restored together in the late 80’s. I was supposed to drive it to high school but after a frame-off restoration I was in my second year of college before it was completed and he and my mom drove it all over the country with the COVTR (Central...

    New Member New owner of two 1958 TR3s found in a junk yard.

    Since I was 5 years old I have always wanted to own a triumph TR 3 or an Austin Heally 3000. My dad owned a foreign car shop in Ohio when I was a little fellow and to pass time I would play in the TR3, even at an early age I can see the frog eyes and remember how beautiful and odd at the same...
