The "white" car is a 1966 MG 1100, front wheel drive, transversely mounted 1100cc engine with 45hp, it sports a hydrolastic suspension and could probably fit my entire family: three boys + the wife. These where built by BMC (officially known as ADO16) and carried many badges including Austin, Morris, Wolseley and Riley.

The silver car is my spare 72 Berlina for the 73 Berlina, my daily driver, directly accross from it.

Thanks. PO drove Ferraris and Maserati, but would get the most attention in this car. Here in the big city exotics are plenty , rare British steel is extraordinary.

Something like THIS...?

This is my Dad's hangar up on the farm in NE Missouri. It currently houses 6 aircraft and a nice XJ12L.

Gotta be careful in there, those propellers'll hurt you!

Gee I love this thread, it's like a never ending tim tam box (that may be an Aussie only add?!).

Anyway, my shed has a new gtv6 addition, photo is nothing special but you get the idea.

The Alfetta GTV6 is a 1983 Novemeber build 1ith full history and 130,000Km's on the clock supported by the dcoumentation. It is almost 100% rust free (little spot on hatch) and is stock appart from koni red in front and koni yellow in rear, and of course the steering wheel and gear knob.

The Alfetta GT in the background is my Alfetta GT twin charge project which people can check out in the engine conversion section if they wish.

Cheers
Mike

"Gotta be careful in there, those propellers'll hurt you! "

no kidding, we'd have to hand crank 150's with flat batteries, now that was always a thrill!

What kind of bushings are those..........They look like metal in the picture?

Last week we got pounded with a foot of snow, last night we got freezing rain, this morning 2 more inches of snow with a high of 10 F and tonight's high will be - 8 F....................But the Black Spider is safe and warm in the shop ready to go through her annual check list.
