    Ringo,

    Awesome car! I also like the painted slats design. I’m curious, are they actually painted? It almost looks like some kind of applique because it looks like some of the Chrome is still showing on the slats. I think it really dresses up the look.

    I’ll bet it turns some heads!

    Hey Gang

    Sharp eyes!  The
    previous owner placed the reflective tape on the outside angle of the
    slats.  Looks good and really is a nice safety feature at
    night.  It does have some wear and I have replacement on my list
    of things to do.

    Thanks for the comments!

    Hey Gang;

    got a new licnese plate.  I know our replicas are supposed to be of 52s, but I was born in ’53, so I took some liberties.

     

    This is a bimini top boot that I got at a marine supply.  I think it really adds to the overall look.

    Later, Ringo

    Ringo,

    It just keeps getting better and better.

    Also from the looks of the new vegetation in the background, you’re several weeks ahead of us “northerners”

    Ringo,

    The car looks great. I also have the top boot, it definitely gives a cleaner look. Thanks for the pics!

    Great plate on a great car.

    I dated mine a ’53 also, wife was born in 53 and it is political correct to keep her happy.

    Thanks for the pictures

    But is it politically correct to let us all know her age?

    Just kidding!

    OH NO…..I didn’t think of that either.

    Mel, Florida may be a bit chilly this June .

    My wife is a 1955 model, so I was safe ordering a 53 plate, I am a 1953 model.

       I’m 28. Am I the youngest member here? Just curious.

    Not that thats bad, I guess I can gain lots of wisdom from you gents!

    Geoff:

    Wisdom means we have had our chance to have the adventures you are yet to set out on.   Feel free to make our experience make you adventure easier and more enjoyable.

    BTW  as of today I am 1,116 days from retirement.

    I’m with Mel.

    My MGTD adventures started about 25 years later in my life than yours. Geoff, you have much longer to enjoy your MGTD, well at least 25 years or more to get to the point I am now. Mine didn’t start until I was 53, enjoy and benefit from our wisdom (and our mistakes that built that wisdom). I wish I had my MGTD when I was in my twenties, especially a beauty like the one you’ve got .

    With the economy like it is, I have about a zillion years before retirement.

    Mel’s got two countdowns running, the countdown until June and Florida, and retirement

    @ringo

    What’s this “retirement” you guys are talking about???

    I heard stories about that years ago but I thought they were just fairy tales designed to keep us putting money into large holes that were called 401Ks.  Let me know if I missed something!

    Geoff, I was your age when these  first came out.  Had I known what fun they were I would have gotten one then.  Then again, I appreciate a lot of things more now.  Like the joy of working until they lower me in the ground!

    Later. Ringo

    Maybe we should post our birthdays on the little info line that’s at the bottom of our posts? Males only of course!

    I won’t say how old I am, but unlike Bill Collins, fire had already been discovered…not sure about the wheel though  

    Keep learning Geoff…from young and old alike. When you stop learning, you might as well get the proverbial dirt blanket.

    All,

    I’ve been quiet about this age thing until now. I won’t tell the date but I was just entering the “terrible two” stage when Ringo and James showed up.

    And Geoff, as the saying goes, “I have shirts that are older than you”!

    On the other hand, I have recently achieved “TD Replica Stud” status, so I have that going for me

    Ringo, hurry up and fix something else and take some more pictures so we can get off this age topic.

    Rich
