Retrofitted and Supercharged

By Lorn Guidry I am a retired airport screening officer and I still enjoy my Brooklands green 1980 MGB like the first day I bought it back in 1995.  It was not much to look at back then, with its rubber bumpers and an under-powered motor that burned oil.  The Roth Style wheels were painted black and…

2016 Motoring Challenge… It’s a TIE!!!

By David Stuursma “I got everything but Hawaii and Nunavut.” I read this twice. It wasn’t that I didn’t understand what I read the first time through. Nope.
