January 2018 – 1978 MGB GT
Little is known about Mindy, with 12 owners she seems to have been passed around a lot. Before we found her she belonged to a retired elderly chap who had kept her in the garage for 4 years but could no longer get in or out so sadly sold her. I brought her from Bognor Regis and this is where our story starts.
She has needed a little bit of work – the first time I drove her to work she dropped her clutch fluid and refused to move thereafter. But now, she is a reliable daily driver and always attracts smiles (mostly from me). So far we have attended a few MG runs and been to our first show, with many more lined up I can’t wait! Dan also enjoys time with her, although stealing her to take the photos is as far as he is allowed to go, short supervised trips only! I am a little overly protective of her.
