Retired from Verizon and a former sub sailor. My first car was a new 65 MG Midget. I also owned a 65 MGB in 1970 and always wanted another one. I finally got one 02/10 and I'm loving it!! My wife's car is a early 74 chrome bumper MGB.

Work On 74B

Posted on: Monday May 18, 2015

Changed the lever shocks front and back, the front springs and also changed the rear leaf springs. She was lowered in the front and I was always hitting speed bumps. I installed standard size Suplex front springs and now she is riding very high in the front. I would say she is two inches higher in the front than the rear. I am going to ride her some and see if the front settles down. If not, I will have to cut the front springs....do not want to redo the front end again....that was a job. ...

This is a pic of Ruby with her new dress.....deep ocean blue metallic. Took me a week and a half to put her back together.

74B Repaint

deep sea blue metallic

Ruby is in the shop getting a new paint job. Changing the color but she is still "Ruby". Just because a girl gets a new dress doesn't mean you change her name.
