Family MGA Extension

A 2014 new member provided this update on his MGA:

I am a new member of the club and I would like to share a few photos and the history of my 1960 MGA.

As you can see from the photos, my car is currently being carefully restored by Ron Redding at 5R Restorations. My father originally purchased this car in 1966 for $300 in Ft. Stockton, TX. As the story goes, he drove the car to his home in Carlsbad, NM and the engine consumed more than 12 quarts of oil during the 150 trip. After some much needed shade tree TLC and a new crankshaft, he drove the MGA for the next 20 years.

My father passed away in 2012, so I wanted to have his car restored to original condition in his honor. Hopefully, I can pass it along to my grandson in a few years to keep my fathers memory alive. Attached is a photo of my son Shea and Grandson Caleb after dropping off the car with Ron Redding.

Thanks, and I look forward to participating in some future events when the car is completed.

Best regards,
Mike Gentry

Mike, we feel certain that everyone in our Club applauds your effort.  It is a worthy quest on multiple levels!  Keep up the good work.
