Husband Spends 3 Years Restoring Sports Car That Belonged To Wife's Mom
A stunned woman could not believe her eyes when she was gifted a classic sports car that belonged to her late mother. The stunning 1952 MG TD had belonged to Anita Lindsay’s mother but had not been used since the 70s. But thanks to some crafty restoration work by her husband, Jerry, the vehicle was able to come to life once again. Standing on her driveway in Portland, Oregon, Anita, 64, was in complete shock as family and friends ushered her outside for what she thought was a 44th anniversary celebration of her first date with her husband - only to be met with the gleaming sports car parked out front. She was so shocked she did not realize it was the exact car her mother had driven during Anita's childhood until she hopped in the front seat. Anita’s mother and driven around in the MG roadster during her younger years, and riding shotgun in the vehicle formed such a vivid part of her childhood, Anita said. A love of MGs followed Anita into her formative years, as on her high school graduation, she was presented with a 1959 MG A of her own by her family And Anita was driving that same car when she first caught Jerry’s eye in the early 70s, but unfortunately it was later stolen and never recovered. So, Jerry decided he wanted to go one better, bringing the ’52 MG her mother had driven back into his wife's life.
