I have a 1953 MGTD for sale. Restored by a well-known shop. British Racing Green with a tan leather interior and a tan canvas top. Not concours but very nice.  Needs nothing.  Email me if anyone is interested.

Rare MGA item seen on Craigslist...

Kevin McLemore
 

Just an alert to any MGA owners in the club (or friends)... I saw this item on CL tonight and thought I'd pass it on.  Not only a rare hardtop, but with a sunroof as well and it's nearby.
I don't know the seller, so the usual caveats apply... batteries not included, your mileage may vary, etc.

The Midget currently resides with a friend in Tuscara PA whim will take good care of it and allow me to drive it when we are in the area. :-)

As us sailors say, May you always have the wind at your back and the dun shine on your face.

Be well.

I am somewhat saddened to report that I have sold my 1978 MG Midget. I have owned and driven this car since 1980ish. Before that I had a 76. so for all practical purposes I have driven a Midget for more than 4 decades. It was my middle child and she has gone off to college at 41 :0-( It is now over.

I said I was “somewhat" saddened as this was a necessary step in our moving into the next phase of our lives. Theresa and I are going mobile!!!! WHOO HOO are we excited about this!!  We have sold our house in Morrisville and moved full time into our RV. We have been discussing and planning this for about 5 years. After last years health issues, and this winters 3 months living in the RV we decided it was time to take the plunge. We will be traveling the US hoping to hit every National Park in the contiguous USA. We’ll see.

Currently we are at Penn Warner Club, on a lake pretty close to Morrisville. We have commitments for the summer locally so we’ll be around. But we hope to maintain a 70 degree F or greater life style from here on out.

The Midget currently resides with a friend in Tuscara PA whim will take good care of it and allow me to drive it when we are in the area. :-)

Re: Tires for MGB

Ira Spector
 

A few years ago, just after I got my 69E type on the road, I took it to the annual MG show at Horseshoe Lake, New Jersey. The redline tires looked new, with almost perfect tread.  I opted for a spirited ride up 287 at high-speeds rather than my usual back road trip, and I had a blast tossing the car at highway speeds.

At the show I met a so-called expert, who pointed out the dry rot cracks in between the almost new perfect tread. Needless to say that I limped home very carefully on back roads. I was lucky. The tires have since been replaced and will likely dry rot again before they wear out.  The urge to drive it hard makes old tires risky.

For the same reason, I replaced the tires on my ‘77 MGB. I bought them at a local discount tire shop and they were not easy to find.

Vredesteins are very good tires.  We had them on a Honda and they handled well and sold the car before they wore out.  Sports and Classics in Connecticut was the dealer that had them.

 It’s just not worth the risk.

Roger,
10 years is the standard. Inside side walls and rubber deteriation.
I run Federals on my Magnette. I will check when I get home on the GT but soft low mileage tires are fine for them as we don't drive them many miles to begin with.
