I've loved little British cars since seeing a TR4 on a summer night in 1973. From 1976-1980 I owned a '71 MGB, "The flexible flyer" and it taught me a lot. In 1983 we bought the '73 MGB "The old girl" license OUR MG that we still have all these years later. We taught both our Kids to drive and love cars in the MGB.

Before that it was hit and miss to find gasoline not containing 10% ethanol in the past few years. its a little more expensive but I've been averaging 27-28 MPG so I'm happy!

Tiny Bristol New York had their fun day with a car show, booths of exhibitors, fire dept chicken BBQ, music and book sale. It's a slice of Mayberry RFD. We Gomorrah every year with the MG and enjoy ourselves. This year the fellow with the blown Chevy powered MGB showed up and it was fun to see folks compare our two MGBs.
