 ......and my MGB


a blog with a whole load of tech tips & tricks and information I have found whilst searching the Internet and motoring related books all about repairs, servicing, modifications, maintenance and lots of other stuff about classic cars - in particular the MG MGB & GT. Including info of events, shows, clubs meetings and places to visit with your MGB or classic car. Also I have included posts with updates of what I am doing on my own MGB Roadster.

Belvoir Castle Classic Car Show 2018

I’m a keen classic car enthusiast living in Bramcote, Nottinghamshire and new to MGB’s but not new to classic cars in general.

Having always done my own car maintenance (apart from when warrantees etc can be affected) since I was a teenager as well as major engine removals on Minivans, VW beetles, Viva HB and then later a Montego VP estate – there’s not many jobs on a car I haven’t had a go at.

Apart from the minis I owned as a teenager during the 1990s I rebuilt pretty well from scratch with a lot of welding work a Riley Elf Mk1 and a Reliant Scimitar which my wife used daily for many years (not both at the same time!) – I now wish I hadn’t sold them back in 2004.

So now pretty well retired and looking for another project (although a running project this time) I bought an MGB Roadster at the end of 2017 which has kept me occupied in my spare time as well as being able to use it for days out and to visit shows.
Like a lot of classic car owners I probably spend more time tinkering with them than driving them!!

My “blog” is a summary of the jobs I have done on the car, my thoughts and some associated topics of interest about MGBs and classic cars in general.

I have also spent a fair bit of time trying to trace the car’s history

I hope you find my MGB blog interesting – you are welcome to contact me about any of my posts – especially to correct any errors or suggest improvements at ........... blog@mgb.tips
