1969 MGC GTS and Porsche Carrera having a bit of fun.
While driving a canyon road, I came up on a guy in a Carrera S. Once traffic cleared, he took off while in a residential area so I let him go. He slowed when I didn't follow. Once in a safer area we had a bit of fun. I think he was VERY surprised that he couldn't shake a 38-year-old M.G.!

Sebring 2012 MGA Twincam Vintage Race
This in-car video was taken during the 2012 Sebring Race, which honored the
50th anniversary of the Sebring MGAs. It was taken by Michael Zbarsky from
our MGA Twincam, which might be the last Twincam to take a Green/Checkered
flag at Sebring. When asked if he could have overtaken some of the other
cars, Michael said.....'This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to follow
#52, a Sebring MGA, and #60, a Sebring MGB GT......why screw with
history!!" Enjoy the video and Twincam sounds.....
MGC GT -1970-cloud9cars -For Sale
The MGC was firmly based on the MGB and was intended as a replacement for
the Austin-Healey 3000 which by the time the MGC was announced in 1967 it
had had its day. It was powered by an in-line, six-cylinder, pushrod, OHV
engine of 2912cc capacity that was capable of producing 150bhp. The
bodyshell was essentially a basic MGB unit with a modified bonnet hump.
This very rare MGC GT is presented in lovely Tartan Red with contrasting
black leather piped in red a truly classic combination of a British sports
With only having 6 former keepers of which the last owner of 15 years this
C has been loved and cherished over its 42 years of age.
There is not a great deal of documented history with the car, there are
some past MOT's dating back to 1997 when she had covered 76783 miles.
This C is in excellent order all round and ready to be enjoyed for years to
come with nothing needing to be done other than enjoy at local shows or
going out on those sunny afternoons.

MGB V8 0-100mph
NONE of this is full throttle and all soft shifting... while juggling
camera and hat and a hard right hand curve. Think car is good for 130+ with
4sec 0-60 once broken in. Here just got new oil (Brad Penn) and she's at
200 miles since new Rover aluminum 4.6 ?300HP? .During the agonizing seven
years it took to get this car back from the engine/suspension whiz who said
it would take a year or less (constant excuses) to finish, I kept telling
him "you gotta complete it - my health is deteriorating" but IMHO he didn't
listen/care. It is a wonderful car but with recent twin charcot feet and
other disabilities I have to sell it, unable to safely drive it anymore.

I am building my first race car, a 1967 MGB-GT with a Jaguar V12 and am
hoping to be competitive in SCCA's EMod class. The class allows any engine
available in a car in the US to be put in any body that was available in
the US. In this video, I start the engine for the first time.
