MGB Hillclimb ('69 MGB-GT)
Here is my 1969 MGB-GT on a country road in Calif. climbing for the
My first car, that I bought on my 16th birthday, was a 1960 Ford F-100,
this was my second! I purchased it on Aug 10th 1980 for $700 and proceded
to get into all kinds of trouble. Six tickets before my 17th birthday
wasn't the least of it, blown-up engine, phone calls from the Dean at
school really drove my parents nuts.
this car was my daily driver for many years, it took me to Phoenix and back
a few times, all over Calif. and even to Canada for the Worlds fair in '86.
She gave me alot of headaches the way British cars will, plenty of oil
leaks and lots of electrical problems. I Love this car and will never get
rid of her!
She spends most of her time in the garage now, but I thought I would take
her out for a stretch the other day.
The comic strip at the end was given to me on my 22nd birthday by a very
California country side!
MGB Ready for Nurburgring
A short video of my trip to the nurburgring in my 1968 MGB GT. It has
uprated brakes suspension and engine. The car performed great bu i kept
losing power due to the fuel pump not keeping up with the demand. The trip
was organised by the miniForum who i cant thank enough, it was the best
trip ever!!! Looks slow in the vid but felt very fast in a classic car!
More vids to come.
MGB Double Declutching
My 1977 MGB is a great car for learning how to heel and toe double declutch
when downshifting just like the race car drivers of yesterday. A smooth
heel and toe downshift is an art form and really helps on the twisty bits
where balance and control are helpful
