MG TD TF 1500 - Stuff dreams are made of
|I got a call a couple of nights ago, from an old friend who I haven't heard from for years 'n years ... said he was moving to a condo and wants his tools to find a good home, and if I was interested, he would send them out to me soon.|
What arrived blew me away. The "tools" just arrrived in a cube van with two husky guys. It took all three of us to off-load it. I can only guess it must weigh at least 250 pounds.
I have no idea what's inside because, with a return 'phone call, I learned he'd lost the key years ago. I guess this will keep me busy for the rest of today and maybe longer.

|Gord (you lucky stiff) there's probably a number stamped into the face of the lock. The toolbox maker can probably supply you with a key. Bud|
|I'll bet he has it opened allready! |
Key...we don't need no stinking key.
Can pic's be far behind?
You are right. Thanks. There IS a number on the face of the lock.
That means I change strategy.
I had planned to call a friend-of-a-friend who knows a shady character who has "certain skills" that might be able to open it for me.
I have had to use this guy once before and his "certain skills" worked magic.
|Gordon A Clark|
|You know, there are certain folks not shady, who have said skills. You need to find one and get him into Britcars. I have one here, but the house call would be pricey.|
|Maybe you do not need certain skills for Britcars? I once jumped in the WRONG MG after a clubnight and started it with my key, then wondered who swapped my steering wheel for a smaller one?|
That tool box combo looks exactly like mine, though the contents will probably pale mine.
That garage floor looks exactly like mine!!
I have, however, nothing to compare to those cars of yours. Beautiful things, well done.
You are a winner on two counts - old friends and cars.
Now, where is my high school old-boys list?
|Gord, I have similar looking Craftsman tool boxes with duplicate keys I seldom use. I can send you the numbers on the keys with the hope that one or the other might match your needs.|
|Gord, Jim just gave me an idea. The tools section of the local Sears has a box full of toolbox keys. Can you give the number off of the face of your key(s). They're probably the same supplier. Bud|
