Hello

If you are new to the board or have never made a post before, don't just lurk around, post in here and introduce yourself and your Minor if you have one. It would be great to hear from you.

Hello

Post by bumpy »

In my late teens, a split screen Moggy was my first car. In my late twenties trying to wean myself off the fast motorbikes I owned a half race 1500cc Moggy lowered, fat wheels etc and capable of 110 mph.

Several years ago I bought a 1954 MGTF which was beautiful car but lacked any sort of practicality.

So, now in my early seventies I have just bought another Moggy for recreation and Classic Car shows. It seems to have been well loved with several mods that are worthwhile such as front discs, alternator, posh seats, halogen headlights, heater etc.

As I fiddle with it over the Winter I have already lots of questions to entertain us :)

Lovely looking car, are there any plans to liven it up similar to the one of your youth?

Nope. At present it has the standard 1098 engine and it seems a bit more lively than I remembered it. Perhaps I am getting old.
