Have just swaped no1 Magnette for a chrome bumper 1972 MGB that requires paint and a bit of time. It has a bored out new motor, all syncro 4 speed with OD. Everything is with the car. The car has been sitting for 12 years inside a garage. It has a good body.

Define "racer." Actual competition? Or "street fast."?

"Now the problem you have is that when you have the unerring certainty of machinery, it is a machine. When something has foibles, it won’t handle properly, that gives it a particularly human quality because it makes mistakes. And that’s how you can build a relationship with a car that other people won’t get."
