Don't think I'm gong to drive this one, but I'll volunteer my services as a navigator, if anyone needs one.

Fantastic! There's usually a shortage of navigators.

Hmmm, didn't realize a navigator was recommended... I guess I just followed the folks in front of me last year. Scott, if you want to chill your gonads in a convertible, I'd be honored to have you. The heater works pretty well, but the exhaust is a little loud (on purpose...I like that Ferrari scream). Just don't pull a Jay routine from last year. I don't want to be plucking little curly hairs from the upholstery...

Good point; this is a self guided, via explicit route instructions, tour. The type of roads and the "other" traffic do not allow more than about three cars to easily stay together. so it is recommended that most cars have a navigator; find someone that can follow the instructions and pay for your lunch.

Bump. Can't let something this important slip down the list.

Special Prize

For those that participated in the First Annual Frosty Balls: wear your Frosty T-shirt and win a prize. The number of prizes available are limited, so the first three people that flash their Frosty T-shirts win.

I also have a vintage First annual T and will be away for the event. Maybe we will have to all wear them to a function.

Brandon outgrew his Frosty T-shirt, so a men's small is available.

Just got a 1973 mgb today!!! Can't wait to take her on the rally.

What a blast to drive... Though I must admit that I have driven faster box trucks

This didn't happen, unless you post a picture.

Here she is. She had a full mechanical restoration, some mild performance upgrades and is structurally as sound as can be.

Paint wise, she is a 20 footer. She looks like Princess Kate at 20 feet, and the Queen Mother at 3 feet .

Beyond that, she has some really neat vintage touches and some exercises in bad taste... just like her new owner

I love her warts and all and am really looking forward to spending this winter repainting her.

She is not a pristine car like my Testarossa...I didn't want another car I had to stress over. she is just a really well sorted humble driver, which I plan on enjoying for decades to come.

Im taking bets on how much restoration ends up being done on this car. Remember we are talking about the king of " well as long as you are doing that you might as well go ahead and do this".
In the End it will be the most perfect MGB ever...and then it wont be taken on Rallys anymore for fear it will get a scratch. We Love you man!!!
