Currently working for a national radio broadcaster, married for 31 years with three grown up children. I have been an MG enthusiast since 2000 when I bought a 1975 MGB GT (Due to Mid-life crisis according to my wife!)Then the dream was to own an early B Roadster and that dream was fulfilled in 2005.
2013 has been an interesting year so far. I decided to sell my B after enjoying her for almost 8 years and try something a little more modern from the MG stable. I came across a 2005 MG TF 115 with just 28000miles on the clock. Advertised at an MG specialist 'Beech Hill Garage' near Reading, and took the plunge. It's the 1.6 litre base model but drives superbly. I sold the B in just one week with several enquiries. The new owner is an MG enthusiast so it's gone to a good home near Norwich.

Have tried without too much success, I need an airflow meter to do it properly. have had a few local trips out when the weather has been reasonable to keep the wheels turning. Lighter evenings on the way from this Sunday with the clock...

First show visit of the year and a run down to Eastbourne, Sussex for the Magnificent Motors Event. Saturday 30th April. Travelled down in convoy with 3 other B's and a superb Lotus Elan. Weather was a bit chilly to start with but warmed up by midday. Managed to get my wife to accompany me. She was well wrapped up with a tartan blanket! Lovely show, around 600 cars on display at Princes Park, just across the road from the sea front. The B performed superbly without a hiccup. The Lotus attracte...

Saturday morning and a crisp frosty start to the day with cloudless sky. Brakes bled Thursday night, in fact decided to replace all the fluid which is advised every two years. Test drive revealed no problems and a normal braking action. Job Done! Thanks to Chris for his assistance. Taking the B out for a little scamper now. Regards to all

Up at the crack of sparrows last Saturday and a swift removal of the old master cylinder. Then off to the MGology Shop to see Dave Vale in Farnborough to pick up the new part. The refit took a bit longer than I'd anticipated but I won't bore you with the details. Let's just say a little brass washer was forgotten and I had to do the job over again! Time was against me so bleeding the brakes had to wait until this evening. Just going into the garage now with MG chum Chris (MGC owner) and the...
