MGOC Spares & Drive Tribe - Charity Restoration

Category: Article |

MGOC Spares were recently called upon to lend a hand with a charity restoration being undertaken by the Drive Tribe team.  In an earlier you tube video we see Drive Tribe’s, Mike Fernie purchase a neglected 1997 MGF 1.8 with only 69K miles from Auto Alex for the bargain price of £600.  Having sat in a barn for many years, the car required a fair amount of work to get it back on the road.  MGOC Spares was pleased to provide technical and product support, supplying £650 worth of spares and accessories for the resto.  Drive Tribe have committed to donating any remaining funds from their part’s budget to the RNLI Swanage Lifeboat Station in memory of Emma Andrews who sadly passed away aged only 52 (for more information and link to Emma’s Just Giving page, visit  emmasadventures71 set up by her friend, Tom Lenthall.

All in a day’s work eh!? With the car now running on song, sporting some choice upgrades and a fresh MOT, it just needs a good valeting before being put up for sale.
