    My new "Hole in the Road"

    1969 MGB GT

    It's lumpy with Bondo, but almost rust free otherwise.

    One can only own older British vehicles if they are an auto mechanic, are married to one, want to become one or want to pay one a lot.
    Good luck and have fun!

    Nice LBC- there is a 1975 Triumph Spitfire in my garage that needs my attention; you have motivated me to get her back on the road. I am sure you already know, but Victoria British and Moss Motors are going to be your best friends for parts and such. Enjoy!

    I used to work in a shop that fixed British cars. I worked on them, drove them, worked on them, drove them, worked on them drove them then the customer would pay us and drive it home till next service lol. Ya they are fun!

    British cars. BTDT too many times that I don't talk about it anymore. Like not wanting to talk about the war (any war).

    I have never owned one but I have always liked the looks of the MGB. A friend and I swapped cars for a day and his was an MGB. It was loads of fun, like driving a big go-kart with all the bells and whistles. I really loved it but somehow never got around to buying one.

    I worked for a couple as well and this is not my first B. 3 reasons I bought this one 1. didn't have to day a premium for a great paint job. 2.. No structure rust, just a little in one fender that needs replacing if it's ever gonna look better anyway and a little awn one door in a common spot. 3... The wiring hasn't been mucked with much at all except for the A/C, yes I said A/C and it along with every thing else works ''FOR NOW''.

    It does have a list of things that need attention and improving and always will.

    I know it will have many problems but, very few will leave you on the side of the road. Have gotten tired of cars with computer problems, coil packs, 8hr heater core replacements, A/c with a 151 components, in tank fuel pumps, take 1/2 the body off alt. water pump swap out (99 bug), cracked PLASTIC intake manifolds ETCCCCCCCCC...............

    This is why I like my TW, DR, Sportster and 84 Datsun/Nissan King Cab. I usually don't need a book except for a few specs and a little wiring.

    Love the little Midgets, had a rust bucket Sprite in my teens, don't think I could get in one today. What year is that?
