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!
Y Block powered 1962 Ford Unibody LSR Best pass for Nov 2013 El Mirage
Our best pass for 2013 at El Mirage. Maybe not the best we can do but it's
been a rough year. Couldn't get parts for the new engine until just before
Speed Week (we did run 147.195 there) then the Sept. and Oct. meets were
canceled. When Nov. came around the course conditions were less than good
so you run with what you got. Truck ran great and we will post better
times next May. Cheers!
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.
