Check my post on the TA-TB-TC BBS regarding a 1948 TC. I can send pics.

Not mine...I passed on it for a different car on Saturday...but told the owner I would help him move it.

I suspect that he won't sell it cause someone wants it. Some people are just like that.
Didn't the guy who designed the cobra get his start racing a V8 TD?

I know how that goes. Years ago I tried to buy a XK120 rusting away in a field that the guy wouldn't sell. Lyle
