|Jeff says, "My love for
MGA's dates back to 1959 when my cousin in New Jersey bought one as a
daily driver. Owning one was my dream and finally in 1968 I almost
fulfilled it. But alas MGA's were no longer made, so I settled for a
new 1968 MGB. I enjoyed this car for about 4 years and many long trips,
but had to sell it for something more "practical." The love for MGA's
was always in my system and finally in the summer of 1995 I found a
"Emmy" and I were
good friends for about 3 years, when I sold her to another NAMGAR member
and purchased "Emmy Too" pictured above.
This 1600 was restored a couple of years
ago by another Michigan Rowdie and, since he was restoring a "new" Mk II
and did not need two MGA's, I was lucky enough to convince him that I
would give her "a good home."
