    Folks-

    How do you answer the common “what year?” question that seems to pop up while in passing in a parking lot?  Do you just give them the standard “52” and keep moving or do you go into more detail (i.e. it is a 1952 replica)?

    In my case it depends on the level of interest expressed by the individual asking the question. Sometimes the response is a 52 replica, other times more detail is provided, 68 VW chassis with a 72 VW motor and a body manufactured in 82 designed to replicate a 52 MG TD. To further confuse some where I don’t care for their attitude it is a 52 VW TDR

    My responses range from 52 MGTD to 69 Duchess to Replica…

    But my two favorite responses are:

    A Baby Rolls Royce…

    A 69 VW with Plastic Surgery!
