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. See www.FAAEZTEST.com.
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 V8: Starting from the back ...again
An electrical connector fell off at the start of qualifying so we never got a timed lap. So... back of the grid again... And another funny race. I made it up to 5th at the driver change and looking at the lap charts, my fastest lap would have put us on the front row. Somehow I don't think the race would have been so much fun from P2 though...
