MGA in the middle of winter

Today i set out to help a friend of mine collect an MGA that he purchased over the holidays.  The car was about a 4hr drive away, and since Christmas was just around the corner, the seller wasn’t available until after the holidays.   Unfortunately the day we decided to go we received a large snow storm overnight before we left!

After stopping for gas on the way (and spotting a very odd Beetle / pickup truck conversion at the service station) we made our way to pickup the MGA.

We arrived to find the MGA was as-described as better, so we paid the seller and loaded the car onto the trailer.

We decided to duct-tape the front and tonneau cover down in case we ran into another snow storm on the return trip home:

Although we saw many accidents on the roads during our trip, we made it home safely and dropped the car into my friends garage where we will start refreshing it put it back on the road as a driver hopefully by the springtime.
