    Hello!

    Happy to finally make an account and get posting on the forum!

    I recently inherited my late fathers 1966 MGB and I'm excited to have this car completely take over my vibe. As a result I have decided to take on the appearance and persona of a beatnik this summer to match the aesthetic of this stylish little machine: 1960s counter culture, marijuana cigarettes, propaganda, free jazz, pseudo-intellectualism, the whole deal.

    A few weeks ago I also purchased a 1995 Range Rover Classic LWB 4.2L as my daily driver. Super excited about this one as well.

    Hi Albert. Welcome to BCF.

    Your description of 1960s folks applies to more than a few of us around here.

    Here's our MG forum:

    Re: Hello!

    That's a beautiful chrome bumper B! And that Rover - is that a 4.2L V8? My EType is 4.2L but it's a straight 6.

    Hello Albertemore

    Welcome to the forum.

    You have 2 great looking British cars.

    You will get plenty of tips and advice on the MGB in the MG section.

    The pub is an area where almost anything comes up for discussion.
