Oh! By the way. ROMEO stands for: Retired old men eating out! I didn't think that up. Blame the coordinator of the run. LOL

Thank you, no.
Seems a bit unnatural doesn't it.
Umm ... interesting.
Ugh. I think I liked it better when the marque was dead and buried.
I saw one in camouflage in the uk earlier this year...
Was that a new Ford?
Looks like almost every other SUV on the road. 😥
Great, just what we need - an MG badge on a soccer mom car. Zzzzz...

Sorry we missed the opportunity - we should have a few more nice days between now and the New Year's Day Tour.
Hey... I know that driver. Oh yeah it’s me freezing. 😁
Hi! I have a 64B in Bozeman, MT. We drive to Portland often for a particular Gluten Free beer. Are there any MG parts places in the area we should stop at? New/ used.
I was there in November of 2012. Beautiful drive. How does it look after the fires a few weeks ago?
Same location later on the way home. Warmer by a bit, although the driver still claims he’s freezing. Historic Hwy in OR closed from the fire, but the drive up the WA side beautiful. Lunch in Cascade Locks, took in view up the Gorge at Portland Women’s Forum overlook. Definitely can see damage from the fire, but it will be beautiful again with time. Will ask the driver re suggestions for parts and such
The rain is coming this week, so made a quick afternoon trip to Astoria via backroads. Home by way of Jewel Elk Refuge. Warmer than yesterday-the driver is much happier! ... See MoreSee Less

Images of where all the fun happened during the days when John Twist held his annual Summer MG party in Grand Rapids, Michigan....so many memories made and friends met there...!!!! 🙂
I can't believe that the local MG club would not take the event over. It was one of the largest in the country with folks driving long distances to have a great time.
Remember Bob and Sue Mason Jim......first ones there pretty much every year...all the way from Fairhope, Alabama. And there was always Ken and Barbie Smith with the Moss - mobile....!!!! 🙂
I sure do miss those Summer Parties and John Twist.
First time I met Drew was in the hotel parking lot back in the 1990s.
That's an easy one, my friend! Now then....name some of the parks where the Early Summer Party was held. 🙂
Yes...and what a great friendship evolved from that meeting....!!!! 🙂
Drew, you got that right my friend!!!
I guess all good things must come to a end! But what memories.
Many memories at that park..Jeremy Holdsworth ..
Was there a couple weeks ago myself. Can't forget the local Meijer's. I hope one day we can all find a way to resurrect the summer party.
Jeremey if it is to be ....it’s up to thee.
Ok....here's one. Townsend.

Finished! This pair of Fiero seats will be heading to an MGB enthusiast living in Eastern Ohio. These are vinyl with speakers in the headrest and shoulder belt restraints built into the side of the headrests. ... See MoreSee Less
Very, very nice. How much do you charge for a pair of seats "complete"? i.e. you source the Fiero seats, the upholstery kit, etc. Please advise.
Nice work Rick.
Yup nice work Rick
Did you just recover these with MrMikes or did you actually make the covers and reupholster?
I've got a few sets of fiero seats but no plan to use them,would like to find someone to recover the MG seats.
"Just recover". I like that. 🙂 There's a lot more to it than that....but yes, I use Mr.Mike.
And to think you wasted all those years of college and being a pharmacist.
Shoulder belt retainer.
Big question. Fiero seats or rx5 Miata seats. Which is easier to install and which is most preferred
I personally prefer the look and feel of the Fiero seat. You need to flatten the Miata seat rail prior to fitting. Either require making/buying an adaptor plate to fit the existing captive nuts in the floor pan...but with the Fiero, I simply move the seat back about 2" to clear the fixed crossmember where the front MG captive nuts would be found and drill four new holes...then mount the seats with new Grade 8 hardware. Neither Miata nor Fiero will match the existing captive nuts as is.
Best seats ever..thanks Rick Ingram
Rick Ingram you know I love the ones you made for me
Ok... let's get this straight.!!! A Pontiac Fiero seats will fit in my 64 MGB.??? Cause I love these seats!!!! Someone tell me!!!
Beautiful job Rick .
Driving my B from Annapolis to St Augustine, its winter home. Who sees something wrong in this pic? ... See MoreSee Less

Too easy! What’s weird is Speedo is off by 18%. Odometer is off by 1 %. How does that happen?
Oil pressure seems unusually high. Pressure relief valve sticking? I would expect to see around 60+ at normal temps.
Oil pressure is high
What do you have under the hood?
Overdrive 3000 should be 66 mph. Tach at 3k GPS shows 66, speedo shows 80. Always has 70-80 lbs oil pressure.
Stock except for .20 over, road cam, side draft Weber. Runs like a dream!
I copied from MGB forum.
Uhhhh. You must have some massive tires on that B. I think the OD ratio is 22mph per 1000 rpm, so 3200 rpm would be about 70.4 mph with stock size tires. My speedo reads about 10 mph high at that rpm, maybe yours does too. Check it with a GPS and see how it does.
Just thought I’d share my trip south with some B lovers. MG club of Jacksonville has a show in two weeks. Check it out
I have never seen an MG gauge read correctly for long, open them and you can see why not much there.
Yes, you are taking a picture while driving at 80mph, instead of paying attention to the road...
Just a bit more oil pressure than normal 😉
Speedo in my '72 B also runs high. Really high. But the odometer is fairly accurate. (it was off by less than 1 mile in a 200 mile run the other day when compared to the GPS.) The picture attached was when I was running 175/70-14's....I now run 185/65-15's. This is a non-o/d car.
You're driving an MGB and getting passed by a sedan/wagon? 🙂
My speedo shows 0 all the time.... 🙁
Do u have 6 speeds RPM to low for 80mph
You're taking photos instead of driving?
Why is a 4 wheel drive sitting on your fender?
It passed him
One hell of an overdrive....
It not me in the car!
75# oil pressure! Never saw it that high on my 74BGT.
revs vs speed ...
Spedo! You aren't relay going 80 mph. I have two like that. Both shave OD installed with a non OD speedometer. Your real speed is about 65. I use GPS for speedometer.

Beautiful job buddy!
I took the MGB into town today (one of the last days to drive it with the specialty license tags that I have...it can be on the road until the end of October, but I will be gone most of the remainder of the month). On the trip home via I-74, I was passed by a Porsche from Massachusetts...who slowed down long enough to honk his horn and give me a "thumbs up". 🙂 ... See MoreSee Less

1,400 Miles From New: 1976 MGB
Gonna need a lot of seals, etc, replaced if it to be put on the road. Better off saved as a "museum piece survivor" to serve as an example of how the factory put an MGB together. A 1976 MGB is not necessarily the most desirable year of production.
engine rebuild .wont last 500 miles ..
A treasure in right hand, the last dormant British iron in my shop was an old Rolls with 7 K miles and 10 years asleep, no brakes but it drove out to trailer...I washed it.....
There's plenty of B's out there for drivers, preserve as-is
If it was a 67 with those miles I would pay the somewhere near asking price but not for a 76.
Screw originality, throw a 454 in it Rick Ingram. 😀
There’s one around here with 100 miles all those miles were driving it on and off the trailers on the show fields it’s never had a license plate.
Everything is original except the battery
Original even the tires with Abingdon Air in them
I bought a brand new MGB with overdrive in 1976 for about $4100. My brother still owns it.
looks like mine, Steve
Al.....you have email from me.
I'll sell ya mine for half that😜
t's neat to see but it will need a full restoration. A friend of mine had a running driving 16,000 mile '77 that was original beautiful (with factory hard top), it sold for something like $8-9K....
I miss Mary. ... See MoreSee Less

No. I hope she is ok.

That is the Buick 300 V8 conversion of Terry and Marcia Senneker of Wayland, MI. We had an informal gathering of BritishV8 enthusiasts staying at the Tally Ho from Thursday through Sunday morning. We go every year.
Loved the car. Very friendly people too.
If it was rid of the plastic spoiler and had proper bumpers...
Well Chris M. Jessen to each his own. I personally like the spoiler and clean look of no bumpers. Everybody has their own personal tastes. A well engineered V8 car.
Nice, keep seeing all these nice north American spec., MGB's, love to have one back here in the UK, but sadly the funds not to match, but keep on dreaming.
