September 2012 – 1964 Mk1 MGB Roadster
Purchased in 1989, when it was many shades of Iris Blue, with a major rebuild in 1991/2 for the 30th anniversary of the MGB model. I have traveled to Switzerland, Germany, Holland, France and Ireland in it.
It has just completed another rebuild, with new pull handle doors being manufactured for it. The car is now ready for 2012 and MGB50 events.
