Welcome to our resource for MG Car Information.
MG MGA - The things you pick up!
|I picked this up on a drive along a road through bushland not far from Melbourne. Didn't know it was there until I put the car on the hoist to change the oil. |
|Wow, thats amazing, are you sure it's not just a DPOs attempt at a cheap chassis repair or maybe the remains of a basic floatation device?😁|
|Are you sure that you stayed on the road?|
|Winter is coming (to Victoria anyway)...the start of Mike's firewood scavenging.|
|I have been known to go off-road in my A (see pic) but picking up the log was definitely on the road - a bit of wind blown litter. |
|You were lucky - a little more to the side and you might have had a very noisy missing exhaust sound!|
|A bit of illegally imported wood and bugs from Tasmania no doubt! Bearing in mind how thoroughly us Poms are frisked when we arrive from the UK I am surprised your Border Security did not spot it on return!!!!|
|So that's where the phrase "logging the miles" comes from|
|Hmm, I'd leave that there-|
You never know when you might need a piece of wood----------------lol
|I'd like to see how you are going to remove it|
I got a long length of 3”x2” lumber. My mate held one end on the back of the log and I belted the other with a 10 pound hammer from behind the car. It came out okay.
|Looking at your pix, it looked a lot worse than I imagined. Hope no critial undercarriage damage happened.|
