4mgb 2013
My last journal entry was 4 years ago. My MGB is wonderful. She starts up on a dime and runs smoothly. I have decided to take it slowly. I have realized that the roads are not as peaceful as in the late 70's and 80's, when I cruised the country from NJ to CA in a 67 MGB. The energy is more agressive. I am presently sticking to country roads, those less traveled. I always enjoy passing and waving to a fellow MGB enthusiast. Today, while out in the B, I came across two 80ish year old women. The two stopped chatting to say they loved my car. They both said to make sure to drive it til ...

I'm going to sell my spare 1600 MGA motor. This is a complete fresh motor and includes everything from the fan blade to the clutch and the rocker cover to the pan. It also has an early MGB front cover with an oil seal. The motor is currently on my run in stand so you can hear it run, monitor oil pressure, coolant temperature, rpm and even run a compression check if you want. Interested parties can contact Tom Berry at or call 816-835-8262

well I purchased this car with the intent for restoration and sale for profit, well as things happen now I have other more important issues in my life and need to sell it so I can take care of other things pending in my life. I put a lot of work into this car and really hate to let it go but it needs to be done whoever purchases this car will be getting a good deal for all the time and labor I put into it was really a joy for me

Beautiful car to drive. So much enjoyment. No longer was suitable for family and car sat in garage. Only driven in summer. Hate to give it up but my sons or I do not have time or interest in putting the work into getting her back into shape. $4,000 or so of body parts and some tender loving care would put her back into A1 shape.

Road Trippin’ with Steve McCarthy What’s two hours worth? Lot’s of answers to that. Time with a newborn? Priceless. At the higher minimum wage that people are screaming for? About $30. Before taxes. On a Road Trip? It’s the difference between a mind stultifying endless slog up the I-5 and the FAR more pleasant cruise up the 101. Two whole freakin’ hours longer. That’s it. It’s the difference between eating McKing Jr. and a Bison Burger in Atascadero. It’s the difference between a Denny’s pancake and waffles at the Worker Bee in Carpinteria. It’s the difference between ...

The Trophy Discarded in the Trunk
Finally. I was able to get outside and start working on Syren (March 23, 2014). She has been parked behind the garage and buried up to the headlamps in snow most of the winter (since I brought her home in Jan 2014.) due to lack of room. She still needs some brake work ( I have new masters and slave cylinders) to be safely driveable. I also have a complete tune up kit and need to change all the fluids. Due to limitied time today I thought I'd start with the paint and body as this is her best feature and the one that should be first preserved. By going over the body with wax and an orbital po...

My current foray into British cars was started by purchasing what I believe to be a 1952 A40 Somerset. The former owner swore it was a '48 who in his "better" judgement decided to hot wire it in gear and soon found the clutch didn't work and neither do the brakes. This resulted in the smashed grill and mangled front end. After I got the old girl home the inspection revealed this car was in dire need of more than a little bit of cosmetic work, the firewall is badly rotted, clutch stuck to the flywheel, only 2 doors securely close, the interior is missing completely, and there are holes in the f...

Hello everyone, my dad recently acquired a 1977 MGB and plans on handing it to me as a first car for me to learn manual with. It looks like such a fun car and I can't wait to drive it. I've always been a fan of older cars, they are all just so unique. Not like the cars of today. Anyways, so far I've only replaced the spark plugs on it, did a bunch of detailing and messed around with the electronics. It needs an oil change, the driver's side and spare tires inflated, the cooling fans working and a muffler repair. A few gauges aren't working either (Temperature, fuel and tach). Otherwise, it...

As a collector/restorer/and avid driver of fun stuff, I had to have the top selling British sports car of all time. I found a nice example MGBGT in a barn, on a ranch in great Falls MT. It was immaculate and in great shape. It was badly in need of a tune-up, had good oil pressure and compression so I loaded it up. Upon more drives I noticed the oil pressure intermittently dropping then back up again etc until I lost it all together fortunately without any serious damage to block etc. In the rebuild my mechanic and I discovered the wrong oil pump had been used with a shorter shaft that was ju...

I have been working on the roadster for the last 6 years and honestly got a little bored so I went out and found the 70 GT to have fun with. Great car, lots of fun. Still working on the roadster and hope top have it running by early summer 2011. Meanwhile, the GT needs some cosmetic help and this spring I will install the rebuilt 18V motor along with the Datsun 5 spd as well as the interior QuiteRide kit of insullation, should make the Gt even more fun.
