William FoxIt has deep roots in the community.
Jerry HogyeThe size of the tree I bet it has very low miles.
Alex HarrisonHow much is the MGA?
Carl HolmOrganic wood interior!
John R. BlakeOMG!!!!!!!!!!
Dave HutchisonMight have to leaf that one behind!
Tom MetcalfLarger than normal MGA trunk. Gonna leaves it alone though. My wife would bark at me so it goes against my grain.
David HannahI believe this car is listed on the "Bring a Chainsaw" website.
John ManglesI'll bet someone thinks they'll be able to retire when they sell that gold mine!
Eric J. CarbonellI always loved that natural, woodgrain dash.
Doug ColbyI like the club theft deterrent device.
Tambi ShirkNice landscaping.
Terry GandyI've never seen an MG Woody before.
Peter HaysAnd of course - that'll buff out! :)
Drew HastingsThat is a really good picture....!!!!
Bryan HutchinsonComes with a few parts in the trunk.
Michael MelandroThere's no windshield. That will be expensive
Michael D. WalshI thought that I would never see
an MGA sprouting from a tree.
David L OkońLooks like it has the rare MGA phallus........
Eric J. CarbonellGoing to be expensive reviving that barn find. But on the upside, the mechanic will have no trouble getting to the root of the problem.

Rick IngramWasn't Jim a guest at MG98 in Hagerstown?
Richard LiddickNo, that was Brain Moylan. Brian was in the Completions Dept. Great Chap. We almost had Syd Beer a long time MG collector who's cars were used in MG adverts during the 70's.
Kim Tonry2001 in St. Paul? I know he was here once and I talked to him.
Chas Wm BoentgenJim Simpson was a guest at MG 2001 in St Paul, Minnesota. I had the pleasure of having a pint with him and the local MGT Register.
Rick IngramI knew I had met him someplace. It's all running together.
Adrian GoodenoughThe only serious fire we had at the factory was when we had a new paint oven installed, it could take about 15 cars but had many problems with it and before the cars had paint repairs and entering the oven all the light lenses had to be removed or they would melt.
One day Fred Hayes who was on the end of the oven started shouting at us as there was smoke pouring out,Fred had a long pole which he used to pull the cars out the end of the oven as they were to hot to handle, we managed to pull one car out but the smoke was to thick and acrid ( by this time the fire alarms were ringing out, at the other end of the oven was Bill Purbrick that was spraying the cars, he was also a works fireman who dropped everything and ran down to the fire station completely unaware the location of the fire but was back up in just a couple of minutes with the rest of the fire fighters, by this time it was a very serious fire as tyres were exploding so we then evacuated all of B/Block we then waited for the Abingdon and Didcot fire brigade, there was five cars completely burnt out and about another ten badly damaged but repairable, we were all expecting the fuel tanks to explode but lucky they didn't but the fuel lines burnt out and when the fuel ignited just created more white smoke which then combined with the rest of the cars burning, the paint shop and finishing shop was in complete black out which was very frightening,the MG firefighters were very brave as most of them had never seen a fire of this magnitude and although lost a few cars no one was hurt and the oven was running again in two weeks,
Robert RushingNow that's a cool story! I need that for The MG Driver
Adrian GoodenoughTheir was one retained firefighter at the 'Gs' Cyril Cox and he had the freedom of the factory also a lot of time on his hands, he spent a lot of time with his horses which he kept in a field next to the main compound and used his bike to get around the site plus to take hay/feed to his horses, he also wore a pair of overalls to keep his trousers clean, one day on his visits to feed his horses the weather wasn't good and by the time he got back to the fire station he was quite wet but luckily he had an electric fire in the station so he took off his wet clothes and hung them on the back of a chair close to the fire to dry out,he then left the station and walked across to A/ block and went into the canteen for a tea and something to eat while in the canteen the fire alarm sounded and by the he got back to the fire station he could see there was a lot of commotion outside the station and to discover the station was on fire, this was in the sixties and up until then this was the only fire we had at the 'Gs'
The next day Cyril had to go down to the personal dept to explain himself but had to pass the production lines on the way, as soon as he was spotted by the workforce on the lines they all started to sing and cheer and someone offered him some old overalls, he also had the same treatment when he walked through B/block
Cyril was never allowed to forget the day he set the fire station on fire,
Tom MetcalfVery good, Adrian Goodenough. Do you have an approximate date?
