MG MGA - wedding ring

Has anyone ever found a gold men's wedding using wedding cars tonbridge ring in an MGA they purchased or rebuilt? Distracted by Wedding cars Sevenoaks I lost it over 20 years ago and never thought to post it on the bbs.

MGA was a red roadster that I owned in Wisconsin but color etc could have changed by now.


Thanks, Fred

Was that yours? I sold it to pay for beer and hookers.

That's good Del, I was worried it might have been sold off and the money wasted!

I dropped a watch in the engine compartment of a Fiat 850. Had no clue where it went. About 3 years later my cousins husband was showing us the watch he found in a car. My wife recognised it as the one she had given me years before. Still have it in a box somewhere.

BTW, if any of you find a bag with a million dollars in small unmarked bills, just send it back to me.

Found all sorts of things in cars I've bought. Found a chunk of hash once wrapped in a piece of tinfoil under the spare tire of a TR-3. Of course as a good citizen, I immediately burned it to get rid of it.....

Did you use one of those Rizla incinerators?

I don't know that I would have been able to identify a "chunk of hash wrapped in a piece of tinfoil"... But then, I would never have been searching a TR3, either.

No wedding ring but will a piston ring do?

Why take a wedding ring off in an MGA, they have no back seat?

Well, I figured it must be in the MG because I searched all of the bars!

Right! I happen to live withiin easy driving distance of Wisconsin, therefore I KNOW that it is not possible to "search all of the bars".

I almost killed a guy in Wisconsin last night by telling him that I did not drink beer.

I once found a wedding ring in a red MGA. Only thing is, It was mine. I had lost it six months earlier. Thought I had lost it while gardening. Took it off and put it in my pocket. I assumed it had fallen out. The wife, she wasn't impressed. She insisted I search for the rest of the weekend, then organised professionals with gold detectors. All to no avail. Then one day I lifted my seat to vacuum properly, and from a different angle I spotted it. The moral is: Don't waste time gardening when you could be driving your MGA.

i once welded my wedding ring to my mga bodywork by accidentally shorting it through a spanner to the starter switch terminal! No it wasnt intentional and yes my ring finger was really burnt, the ring was a tight fit and it brought a real meaning to the expression "get your finger out!"
I learned not to wear a gold wedding ring near the electrics but my electrical skills dont seem to have improved much. A couple of weeks ago i was doing the simplest wiring job, connecting up the pilot lights and somehow melted out the front loom.
maybe i should ask if the fire brigade would sponsor me!
