She did it again. Brought this one home, like I needed more projects. Should have it running in about a week.

Did your MG's let this orphan in the garage?

What's keeping this one from running?

With some creative juggling and giving up my workspace, it's in the garage. But the Model T is up for sale to make more room.

This car was owned by a friend of mine for 45 years. I have records going back to Hollywood Sports Cars in the early 70's. He passed a couple years ago so the car was stored on stands for the past several years. I had to drain the fuel and clean the carbs, and now I'm waiting on some parts to put them back together properly. That's the worst of it really. It's a very solid driver.

I can't argue with that. But in my defense, she makes me work on her cars first. :)
