Default Looking for a MG lover in North Atlanta

Now that I am unable to drive my BB... I am looking for a
UNIQUE toad and hoping to find one that I can tow behind my coach on a flat bed in the event they will find a cure for this thing... is there anyone in the North Atlanta area that would be willing to look at a 1949 MG-TC for me... if this is a true car as described I would take it... If I cant drive my coach any more I can still drive a car... just another item on the bucket list... personally, at a year older than this car it looks a lot better an me...
Thanks in advance

Well the North Atlantic covers a pretty large area. I'm a car nut and only need an excuse you'll have to provide a little more information. I've owned a Triumph car and while I'm no expert by any means I know a little about early MG's I at least know what you're talking about.

Atlanta, HeckMom, Atlanta - not Atlantic.

I would offer my time but I don't know diddly about MG's. I know Mopars real well, though!

Sorry about that. Blind in one eye and can't see out of the other. Seems like there would be a better chance of finding a good car in California then Atlanta. Also if I was wanting an MG to actually drive I'd want an MG TF at the minimum. I'd be afraid to run a TC on todays roads. Having owned a couple collector cars they are not very practical for daily use. Buy yourself a Mazda Miata and avoid the hassle.

I’ve had just about every MG there is but never a TC. I Will not be in the area to help if I was anyplace close I would stop in a heartbeat.
If you do end up giving this or any other TC I would hope to run into you just to see it myself if it is a true TC.

I have a life long friend in Macon. He has been doing restorations on British cars his entire life. He could do a real inspection/appraisal but it would not be free. He is an expert. I have seen his Healey's and now MG's.
He does not have an internet presence, but if you want to best, and are willing to pay for it, he is your guy. I have his phone number. (Of course, he can also properly fix any issues) The only thing that can't be easily fixed on these simple machines ins the dreaded cancer. Remember, "Rust Free" means they are not charging extra for it!

I talked to the owner of the TC in the Fort Myers area... he is sending me more pics... as for driving a classic on todays roads... wouldn't bother me in the least... after I get those pics I may be asking for a set of eyes over there... or maybe fly a '35 biplane in the new air hi-ways
