1973 MGB GT handbooks. The Haynes Manual was purchased in 1975 after purchasing the car and it is full of my handwritten notes on performing maintenance and repairs and record keeping for several years.  The small handbook came with the car.. The antique 1964 BMC service publication was purchased later.  $75 plus shipping.

I went to an absolute auction a few days ago andÖ became the new owner of a í79 Midget. It had belonged to the sellerís dad - still titled in the original ownerís name - he kept it indoors for 20 years after his dad passed away. It came with a trailer hitch - his dad towed it to Florida with him each year when he went down there for the winter.

Itís red, around 59,000 miles, nice convertible soft top. Always kept inside. I currently have it at my mechanic who is just looking it over. EGR seems deleted and air pump is disconnected. Thereís no hose going into the heater box.

The seller thinks the brakes are acting a bit soft so Iím having him look at that. Itís in very nice shape, the red paint is still glossy and shiny.

What are some good preventative maintenance items to do for this car? I live in Ohio and winter is coming soon, so I plan on keeping it inside and taking care of any maintenance issues until spring arrives. My mechanic recommended getting it oil sprayed underneath - any thoughts in that?

Thanks and hope to meet some of you some day!
