Review:

I have owned and worked on MG's of one sort or another for more than fifteen years, with my 65 MGB being my longest lasting car (outlasted my marriage). I bought this book hoping that it may give me some ideas as to improve my old friend. Well, I was deluged with vague references as to what would work, how to do things and many bad photographs. I was impressed with the amount of upgrades that are available in the U.K., but very disappointed to the amount of material that was devoted to outlandish and totally inappropriate modifications to the classic MGB. These modifications are well out of the scope of the average owner to accomplish and probably out of the price range of most vintage racers. If you are looking for a book that will help you get the most out of your MGB get a good service manual such as the Bentley manuals, or the Guide to DIY restoration of the MGB. Both of these books more clearly demonstrate proven examples of modifications that can be carried out by the novice to intermediate skilled owner. If anyone is still interested in this book, mine will be on sale shortly. Thanks for letting me vent... Semper Fi!!


Road Test: MGC and MGB GT V8

Road Test: MGC and MGB GT V8

Review:

After much speculation about BMC's new big-engined car the MGC was a disappointment. Looking very much like the current MGB, albeit with a bulge in the bonnet, sales took a while to take off. Under the skin there were many innovations, not least the six-cylinder engine and it came in both open and GT forms. In 1973 the Rover V8 engine was slotted into the BGT, the only external sign being a discreet V8 badge. Unfortunately it was a good engine in an out of date car. However, there is now a good following for this car. This is a book of contemporary road and comparison tests, new model introductions, specification and technical data and history.
