Phils MG B (Molly)
I bought my mg as I had had to pack in scouting I had been a scout leader for over 25 years. During these years I had been involved in helping others and community events. Unfortunately due to my continuing shoulder problem I was finding the physical aspects of scouting difficult along with not being able to commit to regular meetings. I therefore needed an interest to replace my scouting my intention being to do something that did not involve being involved to much (I failed in that).
Having grown up around cars my Dad was a mechanic and always having a desire to own a classic car but thinking it was out of reach of my bank balance. I happened to find an MGB on ebay that was fairly local so I made a bid not thinking I would stand a chance of winning it, oups I won now to explain to my wife what I had bought. We went to collect the car it had been in a garage for a number of years with boxes stacked on top of it. It had dents and was very tired but was a runner. The deal was done and she came home with me.
I spent the next 8 months replacing various rubber parts that had turned to dust sourcing new panels and replacing seats, breaks, wheel bearings and undoing some poor modifications along with removing some of the American additions.
