>>"I have an old 2 piece racing screen that specifically fits an MGA. It has to be late 50's early 60's. Aluminum frame, plexiglass. Front piece wraps around the driver - side piece fits into the rear side screen hole and clips on to the front piece. Crudely hand engraved on the frame is "The Pitstop Garage by Vince Page. .... Have started to try and find it's history/significance, etc - Does this ring a bell with anyone?"

Fits perfectly. Yes it could be replicated in a garage but this one was made in some sophisticated machine shop or factory of the era. For it's age it was state of the art aircraft aluminum alloy and all of the hardware, etc is indeed not hand made. No matter - it's an interesting piece and it seems to me there was an aftermarket British car supply house by the name of The Pit Stop garage in the 50's, 60's."
