**Mods, please feel free to move this somewhere else, I looked at the forums and thought this was the best sub forum for it**

I know this is a site about English Fords but my short time here has shown that us lovers of all things FoMoCo also love and have some other old British Metal too. I for instance have an MGB along with my Anglia that I'm rebuilding to V8 spec, Angliagt also has an MGB I believe and whitebuffalo is a Sunbeam Imp fan. So as we were hijacking the '105E in California' thread it was agreed a separate thread for Little British Cars that aren't Fords should be started, so here goes!

I have an MGB GT, my brother has 3 Hillman Imps and my Dad has a Vauxhall HA Viva. Show your sinful LBC here Smile

I got it bad then, along with wanting to get an Anglia I have the two Sunbeam Imps, three Minis, an Austin A50, an Austin A55MKII and a Riley One Point Five. My non British car that I have is a 1957 Thunderbird.

Apart from my fire breathing Zephyr I also have a Morris Minor convertible with a Fiat twin cam and 5 speed. Quite the sleeper. in my lifetime I have owned 71 cars, more than half of which were Fords.

I only have 4 cars now (2 on the road, 1 being restored and the other awaiting resto) but I had up to 10 cars at one time in my early 20's including 6 Ford Capris! It keeps you off the streets though Doug Wink

Pics please. A friend had a Fiat Twin Cam in his Traveller, what's in the Zephyr?

This was my MGB GT before it succumbed to rust:



Here are some progress pics of the rebuild so far:

My Zephyr is featured in 2 places on this forum with pics. First, when I got it in the Reader's Rides section on page 2 under Mark 1 Zephyr. And more recently in the general section under "Did some mods to my Zephyr." Enjoy.
The Morry was done by the Beardmore Bros in Yorkshire and has been featured in many mags and even a book on Morries.
Cheers

The Imp theme that we had going in the other thread inspired me to call an old friend to ask about an Imp that I knew he had. It turns out that he still has it and was in the process of putting it back together but he has become swamped with other projects, anyway the car is now for sale. Here are some pics if it.

Ok, I'll bite. How much is he looking for? How dis-assembled is it and where is it? Let's hope the wife isn't looking over my shoulder.

I don't know a lot about the car except it has had a fair bit put into it and it is likely to be very well done, I assume that the car is located near me in Vancouver B.C. but I have not seen it in the flesh. I can connect you to the owner if you wish to ask him further questions re the vehicle specifications and asking price. I would be inclined to go after this myself but I seem to be struggling to get my own 100e Anglia on the go. I will send you a P.M. with his email address.

The more I think about the Imp the less sense it makes. (not that that's ever stopped me before). The last Imp I had was in LA and the cooling was marginal then. I doubt it would survive in AZ with temps over 100.
