Thanks Gord - my wife says that this is the best picture of the two of us together in many years. You certainly picked the right one. She's proud of the Santa hat, I'm proud of the car - it all works out.

Best,

Looking good Bill

Nice looking 67 Camaro Bill. My first car was a 67 RS Camaro with hide-away headlights, deluxe interior, PS,PB,AC, console with gauges, 327-275 hp.
Richard Taylor

Your good Richard, it is a 67 327-275hp standard non SS or RS deluxe interior. I've added PS last year. What is your MG of choice?
Bill Brown

Bill, my first MG was a 77 midget. It was probably the most fun to drive car I have had but also the most unreliable.lol Much of the cars problems I now believe were due to DA's working on it for example I had a weird vibration I couldnt find and took it to a garage that thought it might be the manifold so they took a large crow bar and prompty broke it clean off the engine. I finally found it to be no more than a bad motor mount after I had a new manifold installed.
Now several years later I am restoring a 51 TD that I purchased on a whim but ever since I can remember I have wanted a T-series MG.

Regards,
Rich

...thanks all for the updates....have one more to add...next time !
gblawson(gordon- TD27667)

I have now gotten through all of the photos and my first thoughts were, wow, what a great group of folks and their 'T' cars. It is really nice to have photos of the members and their cars so that I can now have a visual reference to the names that have become so familiar to me.

Now a few observation regarding the photos themselves: To the Tim-Lucy-Mayor & family of Manitoba, CA, was that float plane actually flying over you, as the spinning prop seems to suggest?, if so, great planning to get such a terrific shot; to Bruce Cunha, you may have taken the prize for the most ambitious project that at least I have ever seen....are you serious?! (no insult intended, only admiration if so);

To Bud Kruger, it's great to see the three photos, especially the one of you with your first TD, wish there were more of those 'firsts'; the several that were shown as, "in progress" definitely gave me hope, given where I am in the process now going on 2 1/2 years (okay, I know that that's not long for these projects, just seems somewhat long to me).

To Seve Wincze of Canton CT, an award winning photo; to all of the ones of families, and those, even if fewer, of the younger generation, so glad there will be those to carry on with these great cars; I enjoyed see the variety of colors of these cars.

Okay, I've certainly used up enough space here, so will end by saying a very big thank you to Gordon Lawson for doing this.

Cheers -- John

...and your welcome for the 'prop spinning' as well......couldn't resist!

I was just curious how many right hand drives...mine is the first (#9)...hard to tell for sure on some, but I counted 17 out of 165...also...#152 says the 2nd to last TD made...do we know where the last TD is?
Bob Doc
Bob Dougherty

Just have data on the 2nd and 3rd last.....29913/14 ... and the earliest is 253 which was 'crushed' in 1968 in Vancouver, BC
gblawson(gordon- TD27667)

Hi Gordon,

The T register has 29915 listed, a uk car in woodlands green. see link http://www.tregister.org/found_chassis.php?chassis_no=TD29915®=td
