MG TD TF 1500 - Birthday thread

Ok, this may seem a bit goofy, but now that we can look up the specific date our cars were "born", how about a thread where you post a bit about your car on its Birthday? Tell us about how you got the car, what you did to it, and other items like that.

Mine is Nov. 1, so it will be a little bit for me.

I know that my car was built in Dec 1950 but don't know the specific day. I have only seen a breakdown by the month. Is there something more?

Have fun!

That will get you the details, a calendar will get you the day!

My '54 TF #1260 was born on 24 November 1953.
My '32 J2 #J2107 was born on 14 September 1932 along with 19 others. It was delivered to Lt.G.H.C. Dickens, RN on 31 (yes, that's right), 31 September l932. It must be the only leap year in history that occured in September.

My TF was born on 18 January 1954, completely dissassembled by PO in 1971, never touched again but stored indoors until I purchased it in Feb 2004 and restoration completed March 2005. Have a good day!

TD/9693 was apparently the 2nd car off the line on 8/24/51. Looks like they logged/built about 50 TD's that day...
