    Any interest in 2 Austin Healey 3000 roadsters?

    Look interesting, but very rusty. Where are the located, do they have titles, and any idea of price?

    The "camper" is pretty cool, but what is the rest about?

    For sale Buick.

    Wondering how long it takes a car to sink that far into the ground.

    Halogen Headlights

    Any recommendation as to a source for the relays? Thinking of adding this to my 63.

    1960 MGA Restoration

    You might want to contact Triumph Rescue in Bally Pa for transmission work. I think they work on other British cars as well as TRs. They did my TR3 transmission.
  6. Tempting to grab them and add to future project status. I already have a Vincent project. Well, the manual anyway.
  7. I got mine off with a slide hammer and a hook if I recall. There is a section in the manual that describes getting it off, but it isn't that hard. Work your way around and side to side.

    1990 Nissan 300ZX for sale

    Thats the kind of car my Mother would have bought. She had a bright yellow Dodge Colt (Mitsubishi) that she loved.

    69 GTO Restoration Costs

    I had my 63 Riv painted in 2012 for $5K. Driver quality, but quite good. I delivered the car to the shop after complete disassembly, stripping, all rust repair complete, and in vari-prime. Up to that point, I had done all the work. It was a time permits winter job for a local shop with a good reputation, I was encouraged to stop by every so often to see how things were going. Overall, it took 4 months. I did all the reassembly which took a lot of hours over the next couple of years. I suspect the shop didn't make any significant profit, but the owner is a car guy and takes on a few of these types of jobs. You apppear to have a huge communication failure here. When I had my car done, I knew others who had used the shop, seen the work, and was very clear as to what I would get. I also invested a lot of hours (hundreds) into getting the car ready and finishing it after it was painted. I am still working on the interior, but it looks great going down the road. Its a shame you are having a bad experience, but due diligence is critical in selecting a shop. Clear communication and expectations is equally critical. Good luck, but there is no way I would have allowed this to go on for three years.
