I'll bet that car gets parked as far out in the parking lots (away from other cars) as possible. Lots of effort there.

funny you mention that, thats one of the easy ways to use the car is to be the runner for quick trips to the grocery store. rush hour traffic sucks so bad in DC driving it to work would be miserable

Great progress Bob!!! Looking fantastic. Back in he late 70's, I commuted from Waldorf, MD to Merrifield, Va Monday thru Saturday. An hour in the morning, as ,much as 2 hours getting home at night. I can't imagine what it would be like today!!! NO FUN would be an understatement!!

Love following along with your build. Wish I could get back to mine!

the worst part would be the people and their phone cameras. They think when you're not moving fast that they have plenty of time to take your car's picture - all while swerving at you because they're not paying attention that silly thing we call "driving"

Very nice! Enjoyment of a car can come in many forms, whether it is just driving with the occasional cleaning and maintenance, or the other extreme as with your MGA. I for one will miss the updates now that the MGA project is drawing to a close, but you have earned a long respite and need to go out and drive. :-)

yeah the car with those 30 style headlight buckets just catches my imagination and the engineering is so simple. its almost like you are a steward of automotive history. I do miss the restoration aspects that went along with the MGA but it also was a shit load of work and time.
