Fun Car. I Just Need To Give It More Power!! — fun car to drive. I've got a lot of work to do though. Right now it need breaks and a fuel pump. Handling will be great once i get it suspension rebuilt. right now it shakes a lot over 80mph.

Pros

Chicks like cute cars, and you get a lot of looks

Cons

It makes a better show car than commuter, because it sucks to drive

It Was A Nice Experience To Own It, But I Was Glad To Be Rid Of It. — The MGB is a small british car that attracts attention everywhere you go. Unluckily the 77 model year had ugly rubber bumpers, ugly taillights, and rode higher than its older counterparts. It drove nice, but not as well as it could have, and the wind noise inside is terrible. Luckily my car had a side-draft webber rather than the original SU's, thats actually the main reason I bought it. From a pure drivers standpoint the car was crap, but it has a look and charm about it that makes you fall in love with it everytime you drive it to town.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Fun Responsive Sports Car — this car packs a lot of fun for a reasonable price. nothing beats driving through valley forge park with the top down and my dog in my lap, ears flapping in the breeze. the handling is fantastic especially around those curving country roads. It's more than just a car, it's a statement, and a life style.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

Looks, performance, low running costs.

Cons

No mod-cons, but power steering is overrated anyway!

This Is One Of The Most Useable And Good Looking Everyday Classic Cars On The Road. — My MG has been (and is still being) heavily modified over the years to improve looks, handling, breaking and engine performance without loosing the classic line, my star rating takes into account she is over 30 years old.
