Finally had a chance to get one of the cars out for a run!

May 18, 2020,07:27 AM

Yesterday, my wife and I went for the first drive of the season in the MG. The car ran flawlessly, even with the stale gas--the car was last filled almost a year ago. Drove through a couple local parks, then around the few winding roads in our area. A little over an hour of cruising. The parks were relatively crowded since the NJ governor recently allowed the parks to reopen so we didn't stop, just drove through. I still haven't had the 356 out yet, so that's next, and the XJ6 will get its chance once I get the dashboard back in, hopefully by the weekend.

With four of my kids home on lockdown, we've been too busy spending family time together and getting projects done around the house to find time to take the cars out.

Here's the car back home after our excursion...

Built for pleasure !

Thanks, I cut down the windscreen when I decided I didn't need a top since I no longer planned on using it as anything but a fair-weather fun car. Back in the '80s it was my daily driver.

And I made the fairrng behind the driver's seat myself from fiberglass. It's hinged so it can be lifted for access to the trunk--sorry, boot, British car--

The mods that you have made look superb...

I had noticed the "mismatch" between the rims and the chromed bumpers +

but I agree chrome bumpers look much better. What about the light "covers" you added, do you notice any advantage or just for the looks ? Cool "Type-D" look anyhow !

Thanks! The light covers are just for looks since I only use the car for fair-weather backroad driving...

... although the guys who race MGBs use them so they seem to believe they help. 😊

Looks like some busy but fun outings are on the schedule.
