1964 MG MGBReview
It's A Great Car, Whether You Drive It Every Day Or Use It As A Weekend Car. — Although it's not the fastest car (it has a 1.8L engine) it's really fun to drive, and sounds and looks great. The performance is decent, although the lack of power steering can make it frustrating to parallel park. These cars will last forever if you take care of them and are willing to put that extra time and money into fixing it when annoying little problems pop up.
Pros: It's relatively quick for having such a pint size engine, and it handles well, except for it does have a bit of body roll if you like to take turns sharply. It's super fun to drive, and easy for beginners to learn on if they've never driven a manual.
Cons: You need to be willing to put a lot of time and money into these types of cars, and definitely need to know how to work on them. And it looks a lot faster than it actually is...which could be a good or bad thing

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 ... Read More
MGB was a fun car to own and drive. Always gets a lot of looks and having both tops makes it a 3 season car. Winter driving is not recommended because the heat is not very good for the north east wint... Read More
