MG TD TF 1500 - 60 and still going strong
|My TD, 4139 turned 60 yesterday. I have owned it for 37 of those years. One full restoration of the body (needs it again), 2 rebuilds and a replacement engine, change of gears in the diff, rebuild of the transmission and it is still giving me all the enjoyment in the world.|
And No, that is not me in the picture. That is my daughter at her wedding using wedding cars sevenoaks.
|Congratulations Bruce. That is a milestone to be recognized. You can get pretty familiar with the car,after having it around for that length of time. The longer the better "eh".|

|Hey, congrats Bruce! Here is to another 60!|
|George. Absolutely. When I think that I came close to selling it twice in the earlier years I had it, I am just counting my lucky stars that I did not. I really like driving my MGB. It has the feel of a more modern car, but for pure enjoyment, nothing beats a nice curvey road on a sunny day with the top down in the TD. |
Nothing also beats all the nice comments it brings when I drive it.
But then you know that feeling.
|Congratulation, Beautiful Photo! |
|Hey Bruce, lookin' good. I'm in the same boat as you, I thought a couple of times of selling my TD but glad I didn't. You mentioned you've owned yours for 37 years so I had to get the calculator out and check and I've had mine 45 years. How time flies.

Live the dream,
|Really like that color Bill|
