Frank what are you thinking!!!! You can’t trade your TD for a TD! Look at all of this work you have done for us! Rethink it my man. You can always build a teardrop a little at a time. I’m thinking of building the “weekender” – TomJanuary 21, 2005 at 8:20 pm #236447
Why have you not answered this post?

I assumed it was a rhetorical question and you were yanking my
To answer your question; I?m not
sure what I was thinking. You are absolutely correct in the fact that I?ve put
in lots of time making this site and giving fellow TD owners a place all our
own. I?m in no way interested it parting with Roxie now. I was a little
hesitant before thought I?d test the water.
The idea of building my on Teardrop is also playing in my head. I
picture a classic style behind Roxie going down the road. My problem for not
starting such a task is Time. I?ve gone back to school full time and after a
15yr break and my time in the military, I?m finding college to be a little intimidating.
I have to work on my time management skills.
Roxie needs some work also and I have a 81 VW Vanagon Camper (aka The
Hippy Van)that I?m also fixing up. Too many projects too little time, but have
no fear; Roxie and I are here for the long run.
If you have heard by now, Wade (the father of
MGTD Kit Car Club on Yahoo) has made me the Owner of the Yahoo Group. That will
be another task of mine, keep up with the spam and membership.
I look forward to following your build. Let me know when you get it started and how it goes.

I’m just dreaming right now about building a teardrop. I have to finish putting my MG-TD back together first. And my wife would kill me if I started another project right now. She has a list of thing for me to do inside the house! So you were in the military? I was in the USAF from 73 to 77. Hardship duty, Denver Co., Scotland and Germany!!! I grew up 10 years in four years! I too went back to school after the military and I’m glad I did. It wasn’t easy but I made it through. I didn’t have to work because I had the GI Bill and grants. I put a link below to pictures of my MG-TD that I have named Fred. My wife’s sister can’t believe I took a perfectly good car apart. Take care talk to you later and hang in there with school.

Hey you guys,
My wife works with a woman who is married to a guy who has the molds for a fiberglass teardrop trailor, given to him by a guy who used to manufacture them. I have been asked to give him a hand making one since this guy has never worked with fiberglass before (he’s a professional auto upholsterer). A trade for Merlin’s upholstery is in the works, pending time on my part and health issues on his part. If we do it, I’ll take some pictures and post them.
Merlin update; I’ve been up to my neck in a shop reorganization for the last month which has sucked up all of my spare time. I finally have my shop where I’ve wanted it for the 12 years since I put up the structure. I am now getting one full week and adjacent weekends off each month (NINE DAYS!) so I hope to have time to work on Merlin again at last. I’m going to be taking leaves out of the front beam and hopefully (finally) having a gas tank fabricated this week. Keeping our jobs on track will pretty much keep me working the other 21 days of the month, but at least I’ll have time in blocks big enough to use constructively.

Wow a fiberglass teardrop would be really lite weight!!! – TomJanuary 24, 2005 at 11:49 am #236452BrianParticipant
Can someone please post a picture of teardrop, so that I may
see what one looks like. FYI, I have hoping to find/make a
small trailer for my BCW too.
