Ray,

I have a delightful picture in my head of one Ray White happily crawling over, under and in that glorious MG, on a fabulous voyage of discovery.

In many ways I am sure that you are enjoying finding the imperfections, knowing that you will fix the car properly, and knowing that it is your efforts that will take it back to perfection.

Enjoy!!!

Keith

As an aside, I thought I'd put in a link to the MG's Australian past.....

Things have moved on apace. I have been in touch with the previous owner in Woollamia NSW - a certain Allan Gallard - and he is getting in touch with Les Johnson who had the TC before him. The Johnson's had owned TC 10030 for fifty years so there is a possibility of photos especially as Les apparently inherited the car from his brother, Don...who had raced it!!!!

I now have some more photos of the car in it's dismantled state and it really was not for the faint hearted! The car was originally blue and there is still the original finish on the toe board but I have no plans to change it from the present 'radiant' red.

There is also the last registration sticker in the windscreen which shows the original number as BGZ773. How good is that!!!

I have yet to establish who the first owner was. I now know from records it was not originally in NSW or Victoria so the search goes on.
