After many years of loving and owning MGBs I have reluctantly decided to give them up. Unable to continue to work/enjoy them so there's no point in leaving them in my shop. Neither have been touched in years. They deserve better. Looking to move on to something I can still enjoy my shop for. If anyone is interested in a package deal in south Louisiana check out the buy, sell & trade section. Two stalled restorations and lots of spares

I still intend on rebuilding steering columns and selling kits to do the same as long as I have parts.

Gerry,

I hope you find something that you really enjoy. And I hope you do stay plugged in. You were one of the guys I most looked forward to reading whatever you had to say.

I don't think that I am leaving here quite so soon. Been here for nearly 20 years and intend on staying around for a while longer. I just cannot get in and out of a MG like I used to, or under one, either. Whatever I move on to will have to be much easier on the back.

There's no doubt your contributions are significant especially the steering columne gave me some good tips. I'm sure your British cars will sell well.

Find a Series 1 Land Rover lift not required, 7/16 wrench and a screw driver gets access to most parts. Worth far more when completed.

Gerry, I understand. I spend time and money on old MGs, and then drive not-so-old Japanese cars when I need to go somewhere. I've bailed on MGs in the past, and then regretted it, then came back to them. It really is a nostalgia issue for me to have and mess around with old MGs.

Sounds familiar, I will be forced to do the same in the future although it is not caused by my back, but more and more stifness in my body. Clock is ticking for the oldies amongst us eye rolling smiley

Sorry to see you stop the main reason for this hobby: driving the B. Fortunately your steering expertise will still be able us to serve our needs as it did mine in the past smileys with beer

PS First it was Ernie in doubt and then gone, now you, who comes next? sad smiley

Looking back I have seen a lot of members leave for one reason or another. None of us are getting any younger. I wonder how many members have died since day one here? I also wonder how many of the original family are still around? I don't think there are many left with more time here than me.

Gerry,
Sorry to hear that, but I totally understand. I still hope you will be around the forum. Your contributions and ideas are valued by many and it is always nice to read your comments and experience.

I wish you were closer. I would have probably raided your shop to buy some goodies..Best of luck with the sale. smileys with beer
