Vintage: MGC GT Sebring | Drive it!
Pascal Knapp had his MGC GT overhauled by a specialist in England six years
ago. The classic car and rally fan has been improving his rare beauty here
and there ever since. MG is the famous sports car marque Morris Garages.
The C designates the straight six-cylinder engine. And here, GT stands for
the closed roadster body style, while Sebring was the racing version with
broader fenders and a 200-horsepower engine. Pascal
Knapp let Drive It! have a close-up look at his vintage rally car and join
him on a drive in the country. More Information:
Sebring 2012 MGA Twincam Vintage Race
This in-car video was taken during the 2012 Sebring Race, which honored the
50th anniversary of the Sebring MGAs. It was taken by Michael Zbarsky from
our MGA Twincam, which might be the last Twincam to take a Green/Checkered
flag at Sebring. When asked if he could have overtaken some of the other
cars, Michael said.....'This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to follow
#52, a Sebring MGA, and #60, a Sebring MGB GT......why screw with
history!!" Enjoy the video and Twincam sounds.....
1969 MGC GTS versus Porsche Carrera S
1969 MGC GTS and Porsche Carrera having a bit of fun.
While driving a canyon road, I came up on a guy in a Carrera S. Once
traffic cleared, he took off while in a residential area so I let him go.
He slowed when I didn't follow. Once in a safer area we had a bit of fun. I
think he was VERY surprised that he couldn't shake a 38-year-old M.G.!

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

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...
Supercharged MGB night drive
This is my 1973 MGB. Miles are at 66,000 original, with original mallard
green paint (hence the rubber duck on the dash). Me and "Ducky" are just
tooling around in the cool, cold wet weather, as all ducks enjoy doing. I
apologize for the swishing noise in the video; I edited out as much as I
could. I will also post a daytime video soon, work and weather permitting.
Modifications to the car are as follows:
-Peco Exhaust and header
-Fidanza 9lb aluminum flywheel from Hap Waldrop (www.acmespeedshop.com)
-Sean Brown "fast road" cylinder head (www.flowspeed.com)
-Oversized intake valves
-Eaton M45 Supercharger from Moss Motors
-2.60" diameter Supercharger pulley from
Moss Motors (www.MossMotors.com)
-HIF6 SU carb from Moss Motors (www.mossmotors.com)
-Oval K&N filter from David Anton (www.aptfast.com)
-Pertronix Ignitor electronic ignition with Flame Thrower coil
-Distributor rebuilt and recurved to facilitate supercharging by Jeff
She isn't a speed demon, but she has surprised many people who don't expect
so much from an old, fussy, British car. Traction was limited by the
weather and my right foot, since I didn't want a speeding ticket.
Also, thank you to all the guys (and gals) at www.mgexperience.net, for all
of their help and support they offer on keeping these little beasts on the
