A collection of classic car and MGB tips

Information about owning and maintaining the MGB and MGB GT with over 600 posts and articles about classic cars from around the Internet and other sources. It is also a running update of jobs, mods and maintenance I have carried out on my 1975 MGB Roadster.

Since I bought my MGB at the end of 2017 I have carried out quite a lot of small jobs under the bonnet and on the body. Also I removed the engine and gearbox to sort out a gear selector problem (that’s why – in hindsight – I think it was a “bargain”. I didn’t realise it at the time that the gearstick was not meant to be so sloppy …….if I had I probably would not have bought the car!!). Whilst the engine was out I also took the opportunity to sort out several oil leaks on the engine (which later turned out to be down to a distorted timing chain cover) …… more history of my MGB.

Included in this blog are many quick tips and ideas that may be of interest to other MGB owners …and classic car owners in general. There are reviews of many of the accessories I have bought and places I have been – mainly shows and autojumbles that are worth a mention and may be of interest to other owners.
