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!

MGB laps of Mallala (South Australia) - Aug, 2006
The lovely engine sounds of a little 1800cc 1968 MGB doing laps of Mallala
Motorsport Park in South Australia detracted from by the lousy wind noise
in the microphone. Couldn't get the Alfa but it didn't get away either
Roadstering On A Sunny Fall Day
A few minutes driving an MGB down some pleasant back roads on a sunny day
late last October. Please note that the wide-angle lens makes the speed
look faster than it really was!
Always drive cautiously and courteously on these narrow roads and give
extra respect to blind corners and hill crests!
