"Please find attached some up to date photo's of the Bob Lester MGA which started life in Chicago. Bob Lester had a garage there called Foreign Car Hospital, 5424 South Kimbark Avenue. He also had a sales place at 5340 Lake Park Avenue and was an authorized BMC and Triumph dealer. I am still trying to fill in the MGA's race history. It has apparently raced in Elkhart Lake (Road America) , Wilmot , Meadowdale and the SCCA Chicago Region and Mid West council."
