Nieck Jan Boschman's extensive body-off restoration
Here's a list of pictures you can see from here :
Frank Hiscock's Red MGA V8 from Noosa, Queensland, Australia
The engine is pretty much a standard Vitesse 3.5 l, with Offenhauser Dual Plane Manifold and 460 Holley 4 Barrel Carb, with a Borg Warner 35 3 speed auto. The diff is out of a Holden Commodore, Opel for you, and is the same as a Dana diff. I cut the diff 220 mms to suit the car with Holden 5 stud wheels. The front axles were also removed and a spacer was built in its place to carry a Holden Commodore front stub axle assy. The wheels are off a 2006 Commodore with MG centre caps from the UK. Wheels are 7 x 16". The car has 4 wheel Disc Brakes. It has a PBR 4400 Booster for the front brakes and a PBR 4000 Booster for the rear brakes. The car has taken about 4 years to complete and was an ex Californian left hooker when I got it. It had been rolled at some stage and poorly repaired. Engine closeup and Car from above

Marcus Upton's red MGA 1600 MKI roadster (named "Amanda") was imported by myself from South Africa at the beginning of this year and still bears the scar on the bonnet from a when she was hit by a stray bullet on the driveway of my house in Johannesburg!

My White MGF 1.8i is a company car and my daily transport. Lucky me!!

Randi C. Lee's MGA Maggie is 1960 MGA twin cam serial # YDH61390. This is the first car I bought myself. I paid $800.00 in 1968. My mother called it a rolling death trap and tried to make me return it! That was 35 years ago. Her name is Maggie. The picture was taken in 2001 and I'm standing with my 18 year old son, Zack. I try and drive her everyday. It truly makes me feel 18 again.

Chris Lake's 1960 MGA 1600. from Gold Coast, Australia. Interior and during rebuild. This restoration project of a 1960 MGA 1600 was originally begun 15 years ago during a brief moment of nostalgia (retirement). The project stalled after a couple of months and the car was pushed to the back of the shed where it sat for many years slowly disappearing whilst being used as a shelving unit. Along comes Christmas day 2006 when the children and grand children pressured me into finishing off the restoration. Eight months later the car was completed with a great deal of help from my sons and grandchildren. So now it is complete. Time now to start the restoration of the 1959 MGA 1500 ..

David & Pamela Crawford's 1960 MGA 'Iris' We've made a couple of modifications. The chopped windscreen really cuts drag, and her 5 speed Ford Sierra fully syncromesh transmission makes driving even more enjoyable. So does the front sway bar. We had the head 'flowed' which improved the intake by 36% and exhaust by 39%, then bolted the .40 milled and 'blue-printed' head back down with APT studs. Larger MGB valves and K&N filters help Iris' respiration. Breathing in and out is what an internal combustion engine is all about. Iris breathes ever so nicely.
Iris lives in San Diego, California, and her driver belongs to the San Diego MG Club. We're driving her up to Oregon in July of this year for the NAMGAR 28th annual event, a 1,300 mile drive each way. Going topless should be a true adventure!

David MacFarlane's 1962 MGA 1600 MKII.
According to records I inspected at Gaydon several years ago, the car was built on 7 February 1962 and came off the line on 9 February 1962. It was dispatched from the factory the same day and shipped to Australia in CKD form in mid March 1962. It was built up at the BMC plant at Zeatland New South Wales.
The car was sold new in June 1962 from a dealer located about 50 miles from Adelaide in the Barossa Valley. I am the fourth owner of the vehicle having acquired it in 1992.
The photo was taken in an apple orchard in the Adelaide Hills about four years ago.
The vehicle is highly original still having its original carpet, seats, hood etc. It has been successful in South Australian concours.
The colour is Monza Red which was an Australia colour. According to Clausinger the car was one of only about 35 MGA 1600 MKII cars shipped to Australia.
