The car arrived sometime in September. It was a lovely cool summer morning when a truck with an incredibly long trailer pulled up. On the back of the trailer was the MGA and a rather gnarly looking muscle car.

The engine was carefully packed in a box, and placed where the passenger seat was supposed to be.

As you can see, my wife is very pregnant, and we'll soon have twins. The plan at this point was to have gotten the car more than a month earlier, and just do enough work to get it running. The plan was about to go horribly wrong.
