    Well, things have changed. No money had changed hands and it was sold
    from under her. It was a good thing as there was a lot of rust underneath
    and needed a new rolling chassis. I was glad it went and she finally agreed it
    was going to be a money pit. Thank you all for the information.

    A tangent, web man please forgive. I found a 1934 Pace Racer…[Read more]

  • The car was built in Vancouver according to the owner. I am in Winnipeg. I
    am told a very good top man has left the city and opened a shop in
    Nanaimo. If needed, I could probably get name and address.

    I have exchanged e-mails with Brad at MG Magic. They say the Daytona was

    I believe the seller has a drawing with measurements. I will get it and do
    some more research.
    I am told the kit car was from FL. Would the maker still be…[Read more]
