1974 MG MGB Roadster Review
I Miss This Car. — My dad had owned a '68 (which I learned to drive in when I as 12 - stick shift and all) and a '72 (which I loved driving to high school!). I had a chance to get my '74 1/2 (the one pictured is a '73 - I THINK - the '74 1/2 had these huge pieces of rubber mounted on the vertical bumper protectors - then they came out with those but-ugly swollen lower lips on the front and back in '75). I got this car and ditched my Mustang. Oh I SHOULDN'T have sold it!!!
Pros: FUN FUN FUN - Nothing like a TIGHT handling, sitting 2" above the road with your legs stretched out straight ahead.
Cons: British built.

Great Run Around Car, Not Very Comfortable On Long Trips
I love these cars. Being British cars, they have their faults. The ignition system should be immediately replaced. Also do a thorough inspection of the electrical wiring. Other than those typical ... Read More
Time To Let Someone Younger Than Myself Enjoy This Little Car
Most important is it gets 32-36 mpg. It is a pleasure to drive because of the handling. It needs no repairs of any kind, no rattles or noise of any kind. It does not smoke on start up or down shift. Read More

The best car I ever owned, simple, very reliable, looked good and sounded lovely, especially with the roof down. I had one for about 3 years, never serviced it, washed it and put (quite a lot) of petr... Read More
