MGB Windshield Tech Tip

By Willie Alexander I replaced all the weatherstripping and glazing on the windshield of my 1979 MGB. A review of online forum posts indicated installation of the windshield would be a challenge. I dry fitted the windshield and found the forward lip section and bottom tubular section of the ‘windshield to body seal’ creating interference…

Press Release: Rubber Bumper MGB Lowering Kit

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: May 10, 2018 From the day it arrived in September of 1974, the Rubber Bumper MGB raised eyebrows. Many fans of the “classic” MGB were asking, “What happened to our low-slung sports car?” The standard suspension of the Rubber Bumper MGB, while comfortable and compliant, to many appeared too tall and felt too…

Manhattan Mechanic

Manhattan Mechanic By Norman Tuck I owe a debt to a handful of men, my friends and mentors from my past. I feel that it is important to offer a glimpse, however fleeting, of the lives of a diverse class of skilled workers who shared a love for British automobiles of the period, yet have…

After hosting the British Car Festival in California for five years, and now preparing for our second Motorfest next summer, we’re still trying…

What Might Been – The Stevens Cipher and the Mazda Miata

Top This – MGB Bermuda Hardtop

Most enthusiasts, no matter their mettle, appreciate a good hardtop and the MGB Bermuda Hardtop is no exception. When our British sports cars were sold new there was an entire industry built around developing and marketing accessories for their customization.

A Better B – MG EX234

Shortly after the introduction of the MGB, work began apace on a potential replacement – little did the crew at Abingdon realize that it would soldier on through the end of the next decade – and it was decided that the rear suspension of the next car should have a more modern design (a decision…

This is an excerpt From Felicity Foster’s book: “I Cannot Rest from Travel” You can purchase this title on Amazon.ca.   A sense of humour is critical in life and part and parcel of MGB ownership, as this anecdote will illustrate.
