So, PBS is showing the British tv detective show "Unforgotten". The London detectives, seeking to find information about a person killed in the 1970's track down the "Morton" automobile he owned. It's found in a wrecker's yard with vital evidence in the trunk...
Say, that vehicle looks familiar.....

That reminds me of the time I went to O'Reilly Auto Parts to get an oil filter for my MGB GT. The clerk had difficulty with the alphabet, and could not find MG in his list. So he tried to convince me that my car was actually a Morgan. I went with it for a while, thinking a Morgan might have the same filter, but finally had to insist that he look up the correct car.

Law of Logical Argument - Anything is possible if you don't know what you are talking about.

"Anyone with an intense emotional interest in a subject loses the ability to observe it objectively: You selectively perceive events. You ignore data and facts that disagree with your main philosophy. Even your memory works to fool you, as you selectively retain what you believe in, and subtly mask any memories that might conflict."

Last year I went to Autozone looking for something for my car (don't recall what), and the kid behind the counter had never heard of an MG. I gave up and left, and on my way out the door, spotted a rack of washing/waxing products, advertised by a large photo of a smiling girl... washing an MGB. I didn't bother to point it out.



1971 MGB GT - the project; 2002 Saturn SC1 - the daily driver; 1996 Ford Explorer XLT - the workhorse

Definitely NOT a GT, Lloyd. but the rear bulkhead has been removed from the CB B.

Is is most definitely a GT with the roof cut off. Look at the windscreen - dead giveaway. Then look at the boot (trunk) apperture - along the sides you can see where the roof pillars have been cut.
