Hi everyone. Steve here. Just joined. I've been a member of the MGB Experience for a few years and discovered this place from a posting over there. I have a '70 MG B/GT that I bought in 2000 and still haven't gotten taken apart for the resto and I traded my streetrod in August for a '59 AH 100-6. I lived in England for a few years in the 80s (had a Srite there) and I've been in love with LBCs ever since. Looking forward to being a member of this forum.

P.S. I don't want to upset the purists out there but my MG is getting a Chevy V6 for power and the Austin Healey has a Ford 289 with 4 spd. I like going fast.

SteveO...lemme be the first to welcome you! We're set up a bit differently - but the same in many way...MG Forum is for all things MG (Except Midgets which are in the Spridget Forum)...our OT here is called "The Pub" - great fun! & don't forget to check "Other British Cars" & all the other forums....jump it & have fun!

Welcome. Introduce yourself to the Healey forum too.

You probably already know of the Modified Healey site:

and the Yahoo group list:

Thanks James. I"m a member of the modified Healeys group and I am now just past 6 years into my MG project. I still don't have it taken apart. Operations of this size take time.
