I think the B, C, and BV8 were the last of the MGs.
Yea, l've heard people refer to the MGB as a modern MG. progress marches on.
This not a mg 😂
Are these comments from people who have never driven a TF or RV8?
So why didn't this work? The mission statement would have been pretty simple, to win back the roadster market they would need to build a car that was as good or better than the Miata that could be sold at a competitive price. I gather it didn't make one or both of these goals?
Overheard in the Nanjing conference room: "MG factory? I thought he said it was an MSG factory . . ."
The MGF was a good little sports car and could have sold well in this country. There are lots of stories as to why MG didn't try to bring it over here and some might actually be true. I think the real reason was the company was under capitalized and didn't have the funds to make a major move like re-entering the North American market.

Maybe they have improved. ... See MoreSee Less
The 3 position switch should be labeled Dim, Flicker, and Smolder. (Don't let the smoke out of the wires)
I know Lucas hasn't improved - they don't exist anymore. They got sold off piece by piece to various suppliers (wiring went to Sumitomo, Delphi bought the last standing piece - Lucas Diesel Systems).
I tied down my dash board yesterday as one of my final tasks for my re-assembly, and carefully have been moving wiring harness's into place. I ran the B about 50 miles on Monday, and will have to take her back out today and see if I pulled, or anything came loose during re-assembly. No more high current stuff running thru switches - I added relays for HIGH & low beams, horns, and cooling fans 🙂 Still chasing what appears to be a ground issue on drivers headlight however - time to re-crimp connections and add some connector anti-corrorsion/anti-oxident gel...
I rewired my car with an Advance Autowire kit. It's one of the best investments I made on my car. When I took my old harness out and cut the blue wrapping for inspection, there were 5 adjoining wires that had gotten hot enough to burn the insulation off. It's a wonder the smoke never released.
Not the wires fault, short or overload cause, 60 years of repairing, restoring British cars, weak amperage, maybe, but the best wiring coding system of any cars, same code from Austin to Rolls, try an Italian car a different code every day.

Never had a problem!
My MGB is 50 years old and the electrical system works great. The key is that these are old cars and they do need maintenance. I cleaned the grounds and replaced almost all of the sleeves and cleaned bullet ends.
Feel my Midget pain. I feel I need two of these suckers mounted on my big rubber bumper! ... See MoreSee Less
OR, fog lamps when there's no fog!
Good idea .
I like hi-beams when I am in my MGB. Shines right over the top
I mounted 2 Lucas driving lights on my 72 Honda 600 many years ago (still have them).
Believe me, they'll make someone dim their brights VERY quickly!
