Charles Tisdall in New Zealand has some great shots of his MGB which looks as good as new. The car is a 1967 rebuilt in 1988. Since then he has stripped it and rebuilt all the running componenets and replaced the interior and fitted a O/D box 3 syncro and fitted Chrome 15" wires. His 10 year old assistant (son) enjoys it too!


    

Thanks to Malcolm Madge for the update on his 1980 MGB which is still going strong. 

We have owned this MGB from new, We bought it as a wedding present to ourselves in August 1980 and is now in its 34th year.During the mid 80's we attended many MGOC events with South Staffs MGOC, the small boy in some early pictures is my Son, he is now a grown man with a family of his own but still enjoy's the occasional run out in the B. During the 90's we made many trips to the LeMans 24hr and also the Classic LeMans. In 2008 some minor body repairs were needed and a respray so decided, rightly or wrongly to have it converted to chrome bumper. The car benefits from a blueprinted engine, Peter Burgess fast road head (un-leaded) and 270 camshaft as well as various suspension up-grades. as a result the engine is smooth and is lovely to drive.

The last 8 years the car has spent the Summer months in France where we have enjoyed several tours of the South of France and the Pyrenees. The car has now covered a total of 68000 very enjoyable and trouble free miles.


    

Thanks to our client Mike and his MGTF, made by MGs new Chinese owners.  He also owns an MGA.

Marty Boysen MGAMarty Boysen MGBMarty Boysen from Michigan USA with 2 of the projects he is working on at his company Fabfarm LLC, a 1956 MGA and a 1972 MGB. 

The MGB has an interesting story, it was Marty's first car after he got his licence but he sold the car after a couple of years.  Marty rediscovered the car years later just before his son Nathan was able to learn to drive and he purchased it for Nathan as his first car.  The car is undergoing extensive restoration with the help of Leacy Classics, almost every new part for the restoration having been purchased from us.  Marty and Nathan visited Leacy Classics when they were in the U.K. in 2010 and were amazed at the 'Aladdin's cave' of parts they found when they toured our warehouse. Some of Marty's other projects can be seen in the Mini & Morris Minor galleries.
