|Martha is a '77 Midget (just barely,
according to the plate, it rolled off the line in January of 1977).
The paint is original (though it has been touched up).
So why is this HIS car? How come Marcy doesn't get to drive
it? Well, when we bought Martha, Marcy wasn't interested in cars particularly,
so driving it wasn't important to her. When she began to be interested,
we found that Saloons just appealed to her more, which leads us to
|Miss Daisy is a '58 ZB Magnette.
About 18,000 ZB Magnettes were built (and about as many ZAs). Not too
many are still around, let alone driven regularly. The paint is original,
though with a few more touch-ups than Martha. She is in the process
of a "rolling restoration".
And yes, this is MARCY's car, she owns it, she drives it (she sometimes let's Chris drive, when he's been good). Marcy is in the process of learning how to maintain and restore a British car, with Chris coaching, and we're having a ball doing it!
Except during winter weather, both cars are driven regularly (i.e. daily, unless down for service) Winters are spent tending to the age related maladies that a 23 or 42 year old car is prone to. Oddly enough, this hasn't included visits from The Prince of Darkness (a nickname for Lucas, which made many of the electrical components for British cars).
This is the newest of the new, a Gallery! Here you will find pictures of MGs. Some I have known well, and some I have admired from afar...
Here's an attempt to answer the question we are so often asked: "So, why an MG?"
Help! The garage is being taken over by wayward car parts! Help me find happy homes for them!
