Over a year ago I sold my tired old blue 1970 MGB-GT to Chris out in Pennsylvania.

He's emailed pics to me from time to time, showing me his progress. I've always thought how glad I was that the car went to him.

I just received this email:

Our little 1970 MGB GT took 1st place this past weekend at the 2010 Hartwood acres British Car show!
She's come a long way. :smile:
Here's how she looks:

Rick,

That can't be the same car you had - could it?
Looks great.

The BGT is really a beautiful design and a nicely restored one is among the prettiest of all period cars, I think.

Nice job by Mr. Longo, I'd be really proud of that car.

Then, I'd drive it! :yesnod:
