Faneuil Hall Show (MUST pre-register)
August 27, 2016, 8:00am
1 Merchants Row, Boston, MA 02109-2001, United States
The Boston Area MG Club is once again pleased to announce our 9th year of British Car Days at Faneuil Hall Marketplace. Space is now available for this limited registration, high energy, show at New England's premier tourist and family-friendly destination!
On Saturday, August 27nd, we will be holding our ever-popular People's Choice Awards Show. Car owners can recieve trophies and prizes based upon the voting of the public spectators! This is a fun time to "sell" your car and interact with an enthusiastic audience. Everyone gets into the act and it's a day of fun, sun and prizes. Bring your best and take home a trophy!
Do you have something special or interesting?.....Come down and show it off to a public that is interested, interactive and can't get enough of these great machines. Experience the thrill of showing off your car right in the shadow of Boston's historic landmark and steps away from the Freedom Trail, the waterfront, not to mention all the great shopping and food. It is an experience like no other. The small number of exhibitors guarantees that you won't get lost in the crowd, but space is limited, so mark your calendars and register now. Who knows...you just might take home a trophy!
We have waived the registration this year and will be collecting donations for Autism Speaks. Come down, show off your car and support a good cause.
** cars must queue up on Merchants row between 8am and 8:30am. Once the gate closes, no cars will be allowed onto the marketplace. No exceptions. No early departure.
Register - use 'tickets' link to register. Limited Space!!!! Registration will automatically close once the spaces are gone.
IF YOU REGISTER BUT CAN NOT MAKE IT. LET us KNOW IMMEDIATELY, as there may be a waiting list.

Mark AnnisDo you need to be a member to enter an MGB?
Boston Area MG Clubuse the 'tickets' link in the event to register. Let me know if anyone has any questions
David SchwartzBelow are links to photo albums from previous Faneuil Hall shows I have attended. This is definitely one of my favorite events of the season!
I am looking at two 1974 MGBs that both need restored. The seller wants $6 - 7K each. The bodies are in good shape; yet, both cars need a full paint jobs, some interior work & new tops. When finished - what would these two 1974 MGBs be worth, i.e. - is the project worth it if I plan to sell both cars or keep one? ... See MoreSee Less

Ray FranksChrome bumper? Worth the asking price if they just need a little bit of detailing.
How much of the needed heavy lifting can you do yourself? If you've got to farm out a lot of the work, you'll never get your money back.
This is IMHO, of course, your results may vary.....
Danny ThomasonThat's a lot of money for cars needing restored. That doesn't leave much room for profit after you restore it.
Padre MorganDo you have 10- 20k depending on mechanicals to restore them
Ian ChristopherPost some pictures of the cars. You will get a little bit better info. At 6-7k a piece needing paint jobs and interior work, they are a bit over priced.
Timothy GaffneyBuy a finished car for $6-$8,000
Parts alone will cost 2-15,000 if you restore
Padre MorganI'm with Tim..... There's no way you're gonna make a profit if that's what you're looking for
Josh DiminoAgreed that is too much. You can get into a restoration with minimal to no rust for 2k-5k depending on your timing. I would hold off. Good deals will pop up in the next two months as the weather cools down - people want to clear out space before winter often sell at the best price of the year. That and springtime when they want to make room too
Steve AyersI have a nice car I'm asking 8k for. You can get in it and drive anywhere. If you're not buying something like that it's not worth it to me.
Candi Dehart$1000-2000 tops each. He is asking to much. Restoration is expensive even if you do everything yourself.
Ted LibertiThanks Candi & all Can do my own work re: body, paint, interior & tops, but makes sense to remember to just consider "buying the best car and restore it yourself. You won't make money, but you'll rescue a great car." Good point to wait until season drops off & inventory comes on line as people sell unneeded cars - many thanks!!
Joseph KausseYou have to love the car, for whatever personal reason, to spend that much money and the more than the cost of it to restore, it. I just passed on a very collectible car that was owned by a friend that passed away as the cost of the car and the cost to restore about 15k more than what I can buy one ready to go.
Bud Osbourne$6K to $7K is about what you'd pay for a pretty decent, running & driving B. Sure, the very early ones are bringing a bit more than that, with pristine examples commanding $20K these days. But, if they are chrome bumper '74s, that need paint & interiors & tops, they probably aren't worth more than $3K - $4K tops, assuming they don't need ANY sheet metal work.
Jim DeatschTed, you have stars in your eyes. Buy a nice car for 6K and drive it.
Alex KwantenNot worth it. Even if you had to ship a nice car from a rust free climate, you could still get a perfectly good, usable, even cosmetically nice car for $6K on the west coast, plus shipping.
Greg GlassnerAre they worth $6-7K each now?
Ron PizerIf you get he cars for free and you spend your money wisely and don't expect to get paid for your labor, you will only loose only 50% of what you have spent. This is the absolute truth and I am not being a smart ass. But he hobby is a lot of fun.
Chuck CougillI'd sell you a 1980 with a fresh driver quality paint job that hasn't been started in 2 years for a lot less
Ted LibertiThank you again to all for the very high quality feedback & advice. I do enjoy the cars as we had MGBs & TRs growing up in the 70s/80s & I enjoy most all Brit cars. I very much enjoy MGB GTs & may have to keep an eye for one this fall as well. Ron's comment is golden, <<If you get he cars for free and you spend your money wisely and don't expect to get paid for your labor, you will only loose only 50% of what you have spent.

Wayne SchnellBought this 73 for $500 after it sat for 5 years. Tons of cleaning and scrapping rust. Fiddled with it enough to get it running rough, new clutch hydraulics, battery, electrical grounding etc. Now it's off to the mechanic to figure why two cylinders are not working. Good news there is 130-140 compression on each. After the mechanic... it will need new suspension, floor and rocker panels. Then a new top and interior panels. Are you getting the picture...... we all do this for an acceptable end product. There's is rarely profit if you decide to sell.
Dave Northrupwaaaay too much for those. not even a good price for both
