Comment: Hello, my mother owns a 1977 MGB convertible with low mileage that is basically a garage find. We are trying to figure out whether we should sell it as is or fix it up a sell it. I have no idea how to do any of these things. The car is in Riverside. Any advice would be appreciated.

Thank you in advance.

Comment: Hi,
My name is Richard Schnyder and I have a Triumph… I help put on a Cars and Coffee in the south part of Orange County, not THE BIG ONE at San Clemente! Ours is bit more refined. We like vintage sports cars. We keep it small and move the location around a bit. We try to meet around the Laguna Beach and Dana Point area, early on Saturdays, 6:00am to 8:30am, and then many of us go to breakfast. SCMGC Club Members are welcome! We have been doing this for almost 17 years. Please reach out to:

Comment: Hi, I purchased a 1952 MG TD at auction in 2017. I understand that the car had spent all it’s life in the US until being returned to the UK in 2015. I have the car’s 2000 California license plates ( IHG 177) (B1826768). The Chassis (TD18863) and Engine (XPAG/TD2/19231) are original. It would be nice to contact any of the US owner(s) of the vehicle since 1952 to discover the early history.
Does anyone have any idea how one might trace them?
Thanks, Peter

Comment: I have a 1953 MGTD that was fully restored by the previous owner including the engine which he
never started. After changing a few wires{NEW LOOM} and doing the carbs I finally got it to
start. However it will not rev up and a mist of gas comes out of the front of the carbs. Set and reset the
valves timing carbs ect. Other than maybe the timing chain is on wrong or wrong gear I have no clue
I am trying not to pull the engine since it has new paint and I dont need the work. Anyone have an
idea about the problem

Comment: Hey MGB fans, my family left me a MG roadster in complete disrepair. Thought I’d email and see if there is any interest for parts, etc. It is located in Vista, Ca and will entertain any reasonable offer to pick it up. Cheers!

Comment: Hi, I live in Venice, CA and I’m looking for some basic info. My father in law lives in a village in Sicily, Italy. He is the owner of a 1957 MG. Unfortunately, he is in poor health (heart disease & dementia). My wife and mother in law would like to sell the MG. They know nothing about cars and I know just slightly more than them. We would like to get a fair price for the car without getting taken/lowballed. I’m hoping you can share with me just the basic information a collector would be looking for so that we can provide proper information to a potential buyer and not waste his/her time.
Also, would you say that the MG community is passionate enough about their cars that they would consider shipping the right car from another part of the world to the US or other international destination? Or would we be better served trying to find a local buyer?

Any information you can share would be helpful.

Thanks!

Comment: Good Morning,

Mike Jacobsen gave me this contact. I was being lazy as I could have looked it up as I am a member of NAMGAR. I finished my long term obsession and have “bits” left over that I would love another MG enthusiast have. Free for the taking, only you have to come to Palm Springs to get them. All are small parts, pieces, fittings, rubber, bolts, etc. I have no desire to do a second car. Please feel free to contact me anytime.

Comment: Hi,
I am a new member and am looking for someone in the Anaheim Hills, Yorba Linda, Orange area with a MGB or MGB GT that I can get together with. I have a total ground up project car and would like to get together with someone who has a finished car. I basically have a puzzle without the picture.
