    MGB Re: Said Goodbye...

    Congrats on the sale, but sad indeed for you to be B-less. Ah well, things change and you do have a nice group of cars otherwise.

    More room in the garage is always fun. Allows you to dream of the...

    Re: Bugeye for sale

    Nicely done, and I don't doubt the seller could have that much invested in the car. I've never added up what I have invested in mine...

    Still, that sadly doesn't mean the car is actually worth...

    Re: RIP - Neil Peart - Drummer from Rush

    A true shame. Drummer, lyricist, writer. His book Ghost Rider in particular is excellent. A real loss too young at only 67.

    As a side note, one of my favorite Scotches is Macallan. Neil wrote...

    Spridgets remain one of the most fun and best values for getting into this silly hobby. Lots of happiness in a small package.

    Re: Ford vs. Ferrari

    I saw it a little while ago as well. Thought it was well done -- the basic story was all there, just movie-ized a bit (which is fine, it's a movie).

    I've found that auto movies that are not pure...

    Not really. This spot was just north of Goblin Valley state park (fairly close to Capitol Reef NP). I saw no one in the canyon I was in that weekend. Just lovely, spend all day hiking up on the...

    Re: Camping

    From my last trip down to the desert. I've upgraded, and now have a twin futon mattress that fits in the back of my XTerra. Luxury camping! It is a nice upgrade from the tent. Still like and use a...

    RIP Jessi Combs

    A true shame, looks like she was attempting another land speed record. Too young at 39, she was a real pioneer for women in the automotive world.

    Hopefully the cable isn't broken...

    On the earlier cars you can sometimes get to the release arm through the front grille. Not sure on the rubber bumper cars.

    MGB Re: What to replace when engine is out

    Thanks for the thoughts. I won't be getting into the internals of this engine, it's a temporary swap and is running, so not going to mess. External seals make sense, maybe the water pump as well. TOC...

    Re: Seat belts

    I've got 3-point belts in the Morris and MGB, using the factory mounting points. Not sure what I'll do in the Bugeye. I'll at least do lap belts, not all the way convinced on shoulder belts given the...

    MGB Re: What to replace when engine is out

    I'm going to use the carbs and distributor from my old engine -- both were rebuilt a few years ago (carbs by Hap, distributor by Jeff).

    Engine compression was okay, nothing to write home about...

    MGB What to replace when engine is out

    As mentioned in my other thread, I'm currently swapping in a known decent engine into my '70MGB so that I can get it back on the road. With everything out there are a few things I know I should...

    It will likely be years :grin: but at least it'll be on the road. That's the main goal, to be able to be driving again so that I can take the time (and I certainly will) to rebuild the original...

    MGB Re: Stuck in now, engine swap time

    Plan for now is to swap in the donor motor (from a friend's rusted out 70 GT) so that I can get it back on the road and drive it. The original engine needs a rebuild. At a minimum I'll build it up...

    Plan is to clean the donor motor and trans, and pop in a new clutch. Also likely new engine and trans mounts. Don't want to go too deep on this one, just want to be driving again. The engine I pulled...
