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.

of Modern L.E.D. tail-lights to a set of Incandescent for MGBs and

2 Minute MGB Restoration
We turned our previously orange, then red MGB GT into a James Bond style
silver. There must have been about 20 kilograms of body-filler before we
started, then another 20 kilograms after we'd finished!
We then tidied up the interior with new carpets & a new stereo, then I
added a cool keyless entry alarm system (hence the missing keyholes on the

MGB chasing black ferrari

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.
