    You guys are too funny. If you're ever in Hilton Head and need a place to store your B (and yourself) for the night, let us know. Careful though, we'll probably pick your brains and make you take us for rides!

    Kandace, I saw an MG in the Greenville (SC) paper last week. I'll take a second look at the ad and see if it is something worth investigating.

    "PROJECT" bein' the operative word here. Waaay more than a "turn-key" car, IMO.

    Heavens, don't want a project car--I'll be an MGB widow for sure! Just keep your eyes peeled, boys. There's one out there for me. And if it has chrome bumpers, all the better! Feel like I have a bunch of big brothers looking out for me.

    And we're happy to welcome golfers, pub crawlers, restaurant lovers, beachgoers, sightseers, and well, pretty much anyone else to our little slice of paradise. Got plenty of room and a hot tub! But be warned: I am the mother of 4 (yes, 4) boys under the age of 13. Things are not normal at my house! But I've got my own pit crew for the B!!!!

    Re: Looking to buy my 1st B--how does this one loo

    Ok guys, check this out. Not fond of rollbar or seat belt harnesses (can they be removed) and IMHO the red bumpers are kinda funky. Any thoughts, gentlemen? Asking price w/extra stuff (do I need/want that stuff?) is $8500 obo. Seems like a lot. Thanks again. And Great Pumpkin, what a beautiful family. You must be very proud.

    Here's the listing:
    1971 MGB shiny red exterior beautiful black leather interior with red piping. Three inch wide red shoulder harnesses along with a tall roll bar provide added safety and a secure feel. Pirelli P4000 touring tires mounted on classic mini lite wheels, V8 suspension bushes, tube shocks and a new scratch free wind screen enhance the driving experience. Strong engine with downdraft Weber and stainless steel header. convenient spin on oil filter, oil cooler with stainless steel braided lines, a pressurized engine pre-oiling system (lubricates the engine prior to start up extending the engine life) engine rebuild 1993 with less than 3,000 miles driven. The tan soft top is in good condition. This beautiful MG is a joy to drive and comes with a spare overdrive transmission and a strong spare engine properly fogged prior to storage in my climate controlled garage. At the time of purchase the new owner is welcome to examine my spare parts collection and purchase additional spares for 20 % of the new catalog price. You wonít find a better deal on a 71 MGB !
