Is it street legal with no bumpers, wipers or front indicators?

One of my first quick rides in the B, playing with the GoPro camera and software at the same time.
The trees hadn't hit their peak color yet, I'm working on another video for a ride where I tried to capture that.

Some photos of our trip to Ireland. We rented a steel dash MGB from Retro Ventures. 300 miles of country road, twisty, mountain pass, coastal road driving in one day! Highly recommended.

Very cool. Did you pick up any hedge row scratches? So how is the cost to rent a vintage B compared to a regular (non sport) car? What’s the name of the company?

No hedgerow scratches. I touch of luck, I suppose, since there were some pretty close calls on the narrow country roads. Coming around a blind corner, see a pedestrian and an oncoming car, you have to make the split decision to slam on the brakes or accelerate and pass before the other car gets to you.

The price is was more than a basic, economy rental car, but on par with higher end cars. It came with full insurance so nothing to worry about. There's a straight-forward rental rate on the company's website. No hidden tricks or fees. It's literally a mom and pop operation. They rent the cars from their garage at their home. They also have a shop in Adere where they rent motorcycles, scooters, and bicycles. They were a very friendly couple. All of the vehicles were very clean and well maintained.

Their website is https://www.retroventuresireland.com/

Really cool! Nice pictures and videos!

And on that roads is helpful to have a thin car (just think if you had to pass that Jeep Grand Cherokee in another Grand Cherokee!).

Did you like the B on that roads?!

The B on those old roads was fantastic. The one we rented was in really good shape so it took the mountain passes and rough roads in stride. Having a narrow car was indeed a bonus. It was the highlight of our trip to Ireland/Scotland. The folks we rented the B from were a local couple with a local shop. The whole experience was fantastic.

To those that haven't been following the 5 Speed Swap thread, here's a pic of the engine bay after painting but before installing all the 'stuff'. Notice the little divot in the firewall SW of where the steering column comes through? That's the only modification needed to the firewall to get the 280ZX box to fit a 3 synchro B.

Can't wait to get her on the road again. smiling bouncing smiley
