Registry: 1980 MG MGB
Matt Zimmerman's 1980 MG MGB – “Blue RB”
to vote for this car or add your vehicles
Plan: Remove stock engine/transmission/rear end and replace with GM 3.9L60Â°V6 from a 2007 Chev. Impala/T5/Jag IRS. Replace rubber bumpers with lightweight alternative. Interior/dashboard and body to be stripped to bare minimum, think military aircraft meets racecar? Final color is yet to be determined, possibly a slightly off tint metallic gray with double centered racing stripe in white or black. I plan on using my background in electronics and computers to run a megasquirt engine management system.
This is a major long term goal, but I am not after a quick thrill. This car is going to be something special...
Status: The car is currently in my garage waiting for me to finish my shelving and work area before I start disassembly.
