Hey Pete,

Nice car. Does it have all the original emissions control stuff and runs clean enough to pass CA smog testing?

Yes it does have a California catalytic converter. It was last slogged in April of this year
for license renewal. Sale to a California resident will include a current smog certificate to
facilitate ownership transfer.

Ok Pete. Would I be able to come by this weekend to take a look? I'm in San Diego. Also, does it have the boot and tonneau covers for when the top is down?

Yes, it has both originals. The top is in decent condition with clear windows. We are
redecorating a room so we will around all weekend. I am near the junction of the 210
and 57 freeways. My last trip to the Mission Valley area was under two hours by going
north on the 15 towards Ontario

Ok Pete, let's see if I can find a window this Saturday to get up there. I will let you know in the next day or two, either way. Will this post be the best way to reach you going forward?

I'm sorry Pete. After discussing with the family it seems you MGB is a little out of our budget. I'll try to work it a little more on my end, but I doubt anybody will budge before this weekend. If anything changes I'll check back with you. Thanks and good luck with your redecorating.

I understand. My main goal for selling to to make a trip to Croatia to research my mother's and father's family history. The cots are coming in a bit less than expected, so I am open to negotiating a price.

Oh man, what a totally cool trip that would be. I wouldn't think it would be a short trip either. Regarding the MGB, we've been discussing a budget for this venture and unfortunately our hard ceiling is at $5500 which when calculating in the taxes various fees would then put us way over what we planned. Your car looks beautiful so I really didn't want to insult you.
