  • 1974 MGB GT

  • With spot lights on

  • Keeping good company

I am the 3rd owner. The 1st was a lady who owned her for 36 years then sold to a male who did some superficial betterments but did nothing to ready help her along.
The day I bought her a young fellow cut through a line of traffic after being flashed to go by someone who did not consider there was a car coming along the left lane (we drive on the left side in NZ). His insurance is paying for repairs as he was straight up and admitted fault.
Awaiting parts from England, front right fender was smashed. She is still drivable but not at night so much as she only has one eye at the moment.
I have started compiling a list of parts to buy and things to do. Got a cool little free app to help with this called Drivers Journal.
My plans are to get her back to original running gear and tidy up the cosmetics. Renewing worn parts as I go.
Once I am happy with that I may do some mofifications to get her to fast road condition with the odd track weekend thrown in.
