ALERT: MG Parts Stolen in Detroit

One of an MG club's most dedicated members had one of his business in Detroit broken into while he was away. They smashed down an access door, then used his MGB to batter their way into the main plant and steal anything copper, brass or aluminum.

What they got away with were some priceless parts. Gone were TD, TF, TC, TA and SA radiators, all of the aluminum SU carbs and manifolds for the SA, the
MGB and 6000 lbs of aluminum. Many of these parts are irreplaceable, especially the pre-war items.

Most likely they have been sold for scrap, but keep an eye out anyway. If you see any of these items showing up in classifieds, on eBay or anywhere else, please post a message.

That was a message I sent out to a local list. Apparently it somehow made its way around the country!

That really stinks. Metal to them but a lifetime of collecting and restoring to one of our own.

Stuff like that really Irritates me!
I hope that they try to sell it to an honest
recycling place,who then contacts the police.
We can only hope.
