Cars Broken :-(

My Engine has broken on my poor MG...

Shattered Piston,
Bent Valves...

Having a refurbed engine installed, should be done by next week...

Yay Car's fixed.  Got it back on the 23rd December.  Its had a refurbed engine put in.  This engine has only done about 28k miles, so  101k better off than the previous one!! ;-)

The only problem now is that the power steering doesn't seem quite right!!...

An update for Gareth :-)

Although Leland really wanted me to keep it, we just didn't have the space for it.  At the end of May I had my company car which I wanted on the drive.  With My Landrover and Family car, and keeping the C1 for Rhiannon to cheaply commute to work it had to saddly go.

Its not been used for 5 years, we couldn't start it.  It had started rusting in lots of places, took the landrover to pull it and get it rolling as the wheels had siezed!

I enjoyed the MG, 17 years, only had a single owner :-)  Taught Rhiannon to drive in it.  But hey, 2020 is the year for lots and lots and lots of changes.

MGZR New Wheels.....

Brought some new 16" alloys for the MG....

Looks like I need new brake pads too:-

Rhiannon helped to put on the new wheels!!... At least the tyres on the 16" are cheaper than the 17"!!...

MG just after I put the wheels on....
