MGB Hillclimb ('69 MGB-GT)

Here is my 1969 MGB-GT on a country road in Calif. climbing for the mountains. 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 good friend. California country side!

How much power has my MGB GT lost in 42 years? - Dyno run!
I put my car on a Dyno to see how much power it has lost over the years. Facebook: Secret Cruises invited me to Surrey Rolling Road to take pics and vids at a Dyno day that they were hosting. While I was there, I decided to put my car on the Dyno to see how much power it had lost. The MGB GT had a claimed original BHP of 95. The reading of the Dyno was 79.9, which records the wHP, rather than bHP. But simply speaking, I had only lost 16hp from new. Technically speaking, wHP is roughly 15% less than the bHP, so my car's original wHP would've been 80.75. So my car had realistically only lost 0.85wHP over the years, which is fantastic! I had managed to reach 105mph in my car (With an accurate speedometer) when I attended VMax-200 at Bruntingthorpe runway. So I know my car still had most of its power it originally had.
