MGB V8: Starting from the back ...again
An electrical connector fell off at the start of qualifying so we never got a timed lap. So... back of the grid again... And another funny race. I made it up to 5th at the driver change and looking at the lap charts, my fastest lap would have put us on the front row. Somehow I don't think the race would have been so much fun from P2 though...

Work on my MGB by Classic Car Services, MGOC recommended
If you view this video on fullscreen you might appreciate the workmanship better!!
I purchased my MGB in 1999. Late 2007 I decided to give it a facelift so chose Classic Car Services, Ledian Farm Industrial Estate, Leeds, Maidstone from my MG Owners Club recommended directory. There were several times I had to return to the garage because of things I was unhappy with. The bonnet did not fit as good as the old one. The overdrive did not work after a new wiring loom was fitted, it was suggested that I had been driving around since 1999 with overdrive on, it transpired that they had not connected it correctly. I later found the windscreen heating ducting was missing.
I thought the general finish on the car was very poor and was better before I took the car to Classic Car Services. I had the opportunity to let MG Owners Club know of my feelings on an online questionnaire they ask members to complete annually.
In January 2010 the car, which is garaged had a flurry of snow on the boot lid for 2 days, when this melted it left the surface pock marked. I contacted MGOC to ask for advice, they suggested I contact the garage. When I contacted Classic Car Services in January they remembered me and asked me to take the car to them for inspection which I did. I was told it was a paint defect and they would respray the boot after sanding back in February or March (Free of charge). By 22nd of March I had not heard from them so gave them a call, they couldn't remember telling me they could repair the paint in February / March but are in the middle of a job right now and would repair the paint in April. By this time the paint had flattened but still left imperfections on the boot lid which I told them about. It is now June 2010 and I have heard nothing from Classic Car Services so decided to replace parts on my car which were given to me as Christmas presents. I am still finding things wrong with my MGB which were not there before using this MG Owners Club recommended dealer.

Roadstering On A Sunny Fall Day
A few minutes driving an MGB down some pleasant back roads on a sunny day late last October. Please note that the wide-angle lens makes the speed look faster than it really was! Always drive cautiously and courteously on these narrow roads and give extra respect to blind corners and hill crests!
