Peter Pope's MGTD

Here's the best picture I have of the car... I'll send another when I get a better. She's an MGTD, which rolled off the assembly line in Abingdon on Dec 18 1951... so does that make her a '51 or a '52 ? She was restored by a retired science professor in upper New York State, helped by his son, an engineer, and his dad, a retired sheet metal worker. I brought her to Flatrock, Newfoundland last summer and she's been on the road since September 2010. As of Christmas 2010, she had about 900 miles on the rebuilt engine and running well. I'm working now on a wiring plan to add signal lights, which weren't original equipment until 1953.
