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 V8 Roadster trip to the new forest 2013
A few days ago my dad and I took the MGB for its first proper run since it
was finished. We covered nearly 300 miles, averaged 22mpg and the temp
stayed rock solid between 170-180! Our baby is now 100% reliable and we're
looking forward to more outings.
