MGB Pages

My car was still in the body shop getting some metal where rust (or air) had been, so it was nice to see some MGs.  The show was pretty lightly attended this year compared to the past few years; maybe everyone is getting new sills.  Ben (the one year old) and I enjoyed the show, and he made me buy some parts - what can I say, his face just lit up when he saw the LE-style air dam.  I was lucky enough to win a gift certificate from the Little British Car Company in the raffle, so (if you don't count the money I spent on parts) we came out ahead on the day!

I always liked this blue color; maybe when it's time to repaint...

This is a 1979 MGB with HS4 carbs.  A very neat job:

Another neat engine bay (look how clean the wires are):

This 1974 car also had some nice details:

I liked the way everything was wrapped and tucked away:

Here's the engine bay of a 1974 BGT

I believe the "extra" parts were for the air conditioning (sure does take up some space):

Nice linkage; hopefully this will help me figure out if mine is correct:
