He might be damn proud of the flathead, but surely not of his welding?

Is the MG with the V8 60 the last photo? Do you have a picture showing more of the car? I'm a Ford pickup and a T-series MG Driver as well. Byron Warwick.

Not to steal from Merc's thread, but to offer another V8-60 powered MG TC, with a slightly different head since you're interested in that sort of thing: http://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/s...d.php?t=510369

Thanks for the photos. I had another task that day and couldn't make it.
I think the MG is a TD.
Next saturday is the Gathering of the Faithful near New Bedford,MA. They are trying for
100 flatheads.

I like the last pic best, sometimes women are so easily overlooked at a good car show!
