Harry’s car just got back from Koenes Auto Body (the best body shop in the land!) and is now ready to continue it’s complete restoration.
Soon to be seen on the streets of Costa Mesa, CA. a freshly restored MG TF.
Here’s to happy and merry MG motoring!
Mike, Forrest, and Curt,
I wanted to thank you again for the work that you did on my MGB. I drove it from Hastings to Traverse City on Saturday and returned on Monday. It was an excellent trip with absolutely no car problems at all. Easy starting with the new choke, straight steering with no drift at all, and no idling problems at stops. Nice response when passing and cruising at 65 mph. I got between 24 and 27 mpg. The range is because the gas gauge never goes all the way to full before the filling nozzle starts to shut off, so I am not sure exactly how much gas I used. I have heard that filling the MG gas tank can be that way. Oil pressure held steady at just over 50. It was a bit higher before the engine warmed, but logically that makes sense to me as the oil warms. (?) An oil change is my next DIY project. The temp gauge held steady at straight up the whole trip. I had the new tires put on the 9th and they ran well with the alignment you guys did holding true. For better or worse I spread the good word about Rusty Moose at the Gilmore British Auto Faire on the 8th. You may be hearing from a Ben, Michael, or Bill in the future.
Thanks again from a satisfied customer,
We’re busy, busy, busy! We have a lot of restoration going on around here, I’ll get some pictures up soon.
Cast yourself in a wild winter sled race that’ll have you laughing all the way to the finish line!
Unbenownst to his dad, Erik had us completely restore his 1969 MGB, here is a video of Dad seeing his old car for the first time again.
