August 2013 – 1968 MGC Roadster
Used as an everyday car for years until the sills and wings rusted out and the overdrive packed up.
The engine and transmission were removed and it waited for a long time before it was welded up with new wings, etc. and repainted. The engine was rebuilt and the car was put back on the road – since then we have done many MGC register events.
