Honda S800 racing with Datsun, MGB and Mini Cooper
In-car video of vintage race at Roebling Road in Savannah. I finished 3rd overall after finding a way past an MGB and a great race against a Datsun B210. There is also some very entertaining footage of a fast Mini Cooper leaving black streaks on the track as he slides through the corners.
A look at my '64 MGB.
Rust bubbles on the fenders started a repair project that became much more.
A year and a half later she has new Tartan Red two stage paint,Prestige leather seat covers with new pads and frame repairs,Moss carpet and panel kits,Robbins tan canvas top,a new wire harness and a Moss Supercharger with custom cold air induction. Air filter is K&N mounted forward of the radiator. The steel dash was refinished with wrinkle coat paint- that was fun.... There's a new gear reduction starter to replace a troublesome stock starter. An aluminum flywheel,roll bar,Mallory dual point distributor, spin on oil filter adapter and Ansa Exhaust with header were installed previously.
The P.O. cut holes forward of the rear wheel arches so I inserted some fine Alpine speakers to blast some vintage SRV or Little Feat.
Rust damage was minimal perhaps because this is a Southern California car. The floor panels were replaced (with localized rust damage under the dash) and the fenders had the usual corrosion near the bottom ends so they have repair panels welded in. The fender rust burned into the rocker panels(outer sills)so those areas were patched. No rust found inside the sills or chassis. The battery boxes were replaced because a previous owner modified them. The original steel hood was replaced with a used aluminum hood.
The factory hard top is being renovated with some fiberglass repairs to the inside and some hard to find pricey rubber seals from Canada.
The windscreen frame was disassembled and polished and the ventolator (wind wing) rubber was replaced.
And oh yes, the crack of doom was welded up but the Prince of Darkness still lurks among the electrons.
This car is a lot of fun with power to spare. She turns heads and begs to be driven.

Magnificent Machines - The Golden Age of the British Sports Car
Broadcast by the BBC in 2012, showcasing some superb cars via period and modern footage, this is a brilliant programme. Grab a cuppa, sit back and enjoy. Well done to all those involved in this episode.
Timeshift sets its rear view mirror to look back at the golden age of the British sports car. It's the story of how - in the grey austerity of the post-war years - iconic marques like Jaguar, Austin-Healey, MG and Triumph sparked a manufacturing frenzy that helped to democratise speed and glamour.
From the MG Midget, much loved by American GIs, through to the more affordable Austin Healey 'frog-eye' Sprite, and the E-Type Jaguar, seen by many as the ultimate sports car, this is a tale of how, for a brief time, Britain was home to two-seater heaven.
Narrated by Tamsin Greig and featuring contributions from Stirling Moss and Quentin Willson.
MGB Roadster in the New Forest
An edited version of a short trip in the New Forest in my 1970 MGB Roadster (red, chrome bumpers, wire wheels, walnut dash and overdrive). Sister in car with me (aged 13, hence some odd utterances), and my phone was taking the video attached to the windscreen by a tacky, cheap, plasticky thing I bought off Amazon for all of £5.99, hence the rather shaky video.

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
Cockshoot cup 2005 MG racing
A season of racing an MGB GT in the MGCC cockshoot cup, in 2005. Can you name the film the soundtrack is from....?
MGB Exhaust system
Here is a video of my 1974 MGB, it has a 12inch long glasspack 2inch pipeing and a stainless steel header. I think it sounds good.
Here it is, my 1970 MGB. Music is "Time is Tight by Booker T and the MGs, which was a hit in 1970 when this car was new.
FIRST START OF 1974 MGB ROADSTER WHILE MY WIFE CUSSES LIKE A SAILOR :)
I'm in the middle of my second restoration of a 1974 MGB roadster that I originally bought in 1988. This is the first time the car has been started since October 1998.
The funniest part was my wife trying to be funny by being all foul-mouthed since she didn't know she was on video.
The first half of this video is trying to get it started. The second half is of the car running and moving under its own power for the first time in over a decade. Still much to do but it's nice to know the engine survived its long hibernation.
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 cooling.

1975 MGB Convertible V8
1975 MGB with a Buick Skylark 215 V8 conversion! This is probably the baddest MG you will find! This MG has been converted to a chrome bumper car like the 1974 and older models, has a convertible top cover, very nice top, extremely solid and nicely undercoated to keep it that way, and has the original jack, tonneau rails, and lug wrench, MGB manuals, and V8 conversion data! The engine is an aluminum block 215 out of a Buick Skylark that has been bored, had a mild cam installed, and has an Edelbrock 500 CFM carburetor with electric choke, and Offenhauser aluminum valve covers. Bolted behind the engine is a Borg-Warner T5, 5 speed manual transmission from a Camaro. Other upgrades include: Grant steering wheel, American Racing honeycomb wheels, trailer hitch and wiring harness, and hydraulic throw out bearing!
