’80 B of Flo Cyr along with her granddaughter, Casey. She just turned 16 years of age and she is driving now with a permit. This was the first time she had ever driven a standard shift car and when she came back home she said “your car is hard to drive!” but the first time she sat in it she said “Wow!”.
This issue’s Queen B is the 1980 MGB L.E. of Thomas Dahlfors. Here is his story:
Just a little about me – thirty years ago I rebuilt my first British car, a ’61 TR3. After selling that car (wish I hadn’t), I bought my first MG, a 1974 British racing green MGB. Then I upgraded to a 1978 British racing green B. Then lastly in 1992, I bought from his 1980 MGB L.E. with 600 miles on it. It still smelled new!
As a retired school administrator, I finally sold my last horse and am converting my barn into a garage as there is less daily clean-up.
I recently acquired a 1953 MG T and have been doing some work on the MGB.
Your publication, the Octagon, is superb – the technical hints and tips are just what I can use.
I am a member of three other MG clubs but from what I have heard, the American MGB Association is really the tops for MG owners.
Editor’s Note: Thanks for the kind words and hope you enjoy your car being featured.
