MGB Windshield Replacement
recent project on the MGB is replacing my old windshield with a new one. As
of today my new windshield, windshield frame, and replacement seal await
repair as they sit at the glass shop.
Taking off the windshield frame was not difficult and didn't take long to
remove. Most of my time was spent removing the old body seal,
side grommets, and dirt from the car. Maybe the reinstallation of the
windshield assembly will be as easy as taking it off the car.
I been the proud owner of my MGB since June 1998. Since that time
I have done many things making a number of improvements from a Weber
carburetor to changing the color from Aqua to RED. "I think all fast sport
cars should be red." This website will be host to pictures of my MGB, its
restoration info., information on clubs in the area (Danville, VA), useful
hints, and much more.
VIR - Holiday Laps
(VIR - "Holiday
Laps" on Dec. 9, 2002)
On December 9, 2002, I drove my MGB to
participate in the parade laps for toys event that got many toys for needy
kids for Christmas. I remember like yesterday driving
up to the guard house giving the security guard my toys and signing the waiver but I
had no clue what I was in for next.
getting down to the tower and waiting for ten minutes, I was on the
Being a twenty-two year old I often drive very fast but
this day of all days I took it easy. I think my top speed on the racetrack was
around 50mph. Driving that speed I was not able to keep up with the other
cars so on my second lap and being embarrassed, I exited on pit lane. After getting off the racetrack I saw Bob Deitrich, who
asked to drive my MGB.
After taking some deep breaths I
agreed. Can you say, hold on to your hat.
I did just that praying the entire time while Bob drove
around the racetrack. To end this, I had a great time and it was all for a
great cause - charity.
FORMER MG MIDGET
I formerly owned a MG
Midget that I purchased and "took back" due to title and
registration problems and believe me when I say problems! It
would have been a good buy at $700 dollars because the car
ran. You don't find a lot of MG's at $700 that start after turning
the key. My MGB didn't start at the turn of a key after
getting it and it cost a lot more.
