    Hello from PA

    I am from Mt Joy PA and I am working on a 1970 MGB Roadster. I tried to attach a pic but It didn't work. I have her running but am having trouble getting her fine tuned. It is very hard to get answers to question on a MGB where I am. So that is why I signed up to this forum. I hope all of you and having as much fun with you MGB as I am. I have not been able to drive her in good warm weather yet and that is what is keeping me motived to fixing everything. my problem is high idle. The car is basicly original. It is my dad's first car when he was 18 and he has kept it all these years. Well talk to all of you soon

    I live in Mechanicsburg and can give you some good sources for maybe addressing your idle problem. Have a very good mechanic that works on LBCs in Enola, PA and a heck of a nice guy.
    Glad to see you on line and welcom.

    Re: Hello from PA

    Wow I have logged on to many forums for other car makes and you guys really show you enthusiasm for helping. Thanks aroostok for offering to helping me find a mechanic locally that knows the answers to my problems. My wife is from Mechanicsburg and we visit her family that still lives there. I am also in need of a body mechanic(anyone). The car was repainted a long time ago but while in my care I bent the hood. Not one of my finer days but being that it is aluminum the list locally that have experance is small. Then hood didn't crease just bowed alot. but I believe that if I can find the right person it can be fixed and not have to spend the $900 for a new hood.

    I am trying to post a pic of the car(before the accident) and not sure how to do this. could some one point me to the right direction. I know once you tell be how I will just shake my head and feel stupid but it need to be asked.

    Hi Mathew. Just another "Welcome" here. I spent 3 years in New Kensington and Pittsburgh in the Army a Looong time ago, before your car was born. I looked on the map and Mt Joy isn't as close as I guessed. Do you have similar terrain like Pittsburgh? If so, that must be a really great place to just go drive the backroads in your LBC. We don't have much of that here in the flatlands of Oklahoma.

    Welcome!

    Since you're so close to Hershey, you should go over to the Hershey Vintage Hillclimb on May 5 & 6 if you are able.
    MG is featured marque at the hillclimb this year, so there will be tons of MGs around. I've run it in the past and it's a great event.

    I'm about 2.5 hours NW of you (near the DelWaterGap), but we go down to Wayneboro (PA) pretty often to se relatives....you live in a nice area.
    And we'll be swinging past your area in a few weeks when we tow the race car down to our first '07 race (at Summit Point).

    Nice looking MGB in the pictures....and neat that you kept it in the family.
