April 11, 2008 - Meet the newest member of the fleet - a 1972 MGB GT.
This little car is for Janel. At a track day in Pueblo a month or two ago, I had to chance to meet Curtis Jacobson and his V8 MGB GT. I'd already been thinking about GTs, and having all day to look at his car didn't do me any favors. More importantly, Janel fell in love with the look and the sound of the little critter. She started to badger me for a "fun car". Something small and cute with a big noise under the hood.
The car's also going to save me a lot of money, because she's a fan of the Porsche 911. The shape of the MGB's headlights and hood seem to hit the same chord, so now we have a 911 substitute. Sort of.
