|Oily Hand's Life with MGs
Just arrived this weekend, new rear wheel bearing carriers. As my garage is too narrow to pull the halfshafts inside, I'm hoping for some decent weather to work outside soon.
There it was.
Loaded up on its way to pastures new
To be honest, when I bought this car, I didn't expect to have it this long. It was bought as a cheap winter driver and was a bit rough. It lived outside all year round and for a few years was my daily driver. I thought I'd probably have it for about five years.
Over the years it's had quite a bit of work done, just to keep it half decent and roadworthy and it just kept on going.
Recently it's had little use and it needs more work than I want to do on it so it is time for it to go.
There are many happy memories with this old bus. Many great trips to Scotland; blasting down the A1 to buy the alloy wheels, having them fitted and blasting back again; a tour in the Midlands with the MGB Register; and many more. Our touring holidays were usually 1000+ miles and mostly trouble free.
I'm sad to see it go.
After ten, mostly enjoyable years and thousands of mainly trouble free miles, it's time for the GT to have a new owner, We've had a blast with this car and will be sad to see it go, but life changes and it wasn't getting used as much as it should. It also has some issues that I'm not in a position to sort out so rather than let it rot on the drive, it's for sale on Ebay.
If you know anybody who may be interested please let them know, thanks.
Hi, I'm Owen and I've been having fun with MGs since 1970, starting with my 1937 MGTA. Since then I've had three Y types and a couple of Z Magnettes. I now have a 1971 MGB GT along with the TA and my wife and I are still having fun
