Here in The Garage, we’ve always contended that racing builds strong families and equally strong communities. Today we have yet another example of friends helping friends with wonderful car projects.
Back in the early Sixties, John & Sue Beadle raced this 62 MGA. That was back when you drove your grocery getter to the track and hoped you’d be able to drive it to work on Monday. They kept the car all these years and John had hoped to complete a restoration in his retirement. Unfortunately, John’s health did not cooperate and he passed away in the spring of 2006.
Now, a group of friends are pulling together to get the car back on the road. The plan is for John’s daughter Terry to drive the car on the street. In fact, the plan sounds like a pretty good one. They are going to sort things out mechanically and leave the rest of the car in it’s original condition. What a treat it would be to see this rolling piece of automotive history back on the road again.
