Finally, I bought my MGB (1972 L) on November 12, 2011. I have joined the Bayside Vehicle Restorer's Club (based in the Redlands near Brisbane) and am thoroughly enjoying it.

I'm pleased, just need to discuss a few things with the current owner and then I'll do my utmost to bring her home.

Had a look at my first prospective purchase last weekend. '68 model roadster, nice and in good nick, but something just didn't quite feel right for me. I went with my gut feeling and passed it up. Will be looking at two MGB's next weekend. A '69 and a '72L. Hopefully one of them might be "the one" for me?!
