Another factory MG MGB GT v8 has left England for a new pampered life in The Netherlands.
It is a black chrome bumper v8, pampered by Ian for years and now getting leather seats and original carbs for a new good start in The Netherlands.
- Ian for pampering and finally selling this non restored v8
- Derk driving my Audi in several modes and moods !
- Maarten for driving the Gtv8 to Netherlands although nog truly against his will
- Milan who gave the idea for dreaming an GTv8 instead of a roadster v8
- Several petrolstations to provide petrol
- Finally the nurses who took care of me.........

330bhp MGB V8 v 540bhp Evo @ Silverstone Trax 2012.f4v
330bhp MGB V8, (980kg) Having fun with a very fast 540bhp (1200kg) evo.
First test of my new rear wing and front splitter. Very Positive results.
Fast turn oversteer has been virtually eliminated while top speed is hardly
affected. I can carry more speed in the turns without the back end stepping
The evo has a lot more straight line speed so was impressed with my little
Oh and Gavin was slowing me down in the passenger seat LoL.
Impressed with overtaking the Noble, that thing should fly.
I could have dived down the inside of the little Vauxhall but decided to
just let him know I was there by showing a front wheel, so was dissapointed
when he blocked me down the straight.
First drive of the LS1-powered MGB GT!
A big day! The MG came out of the garage for the first time in nearly two
years. This is just a "let's make sure it all works" drive. The power
steering pump was a bit low on fluid, thus the moaning noise. The brakes
were a bit soft but worked - you can see me checking them as I bring the
car out of the garage the first time.
And yes, there was a good burnout that didn't get caught on camera.
The car is a 1972 MGB GT that's been fitted with the engine and
transmission from a 1998 Camaro Z28. It's packing
somewhere between 350 and 400 hp, has a 6-speed T-56 transmission and a
Positraction rear. The front suspension runs on a custom frame and is
modeled after a Miata, the rear is a custom three-link setup. At the
moment, the car weighs less than 2000 lbs.
Please note that while the radiator looks low, it actually fit behind the
MG Special Tuning airdam that is not fitted. It's since been replaced with
a more efficient radiator that isn't quite as deep, mostly for better
