My Winter MG Blues
While driving those last days, I started thinking about how much I will miss her this winter. I figure that if I can wrench on the MGB, I can also write a poem about her. So, this is my poem, titled, My Winter MG Blues:
“An MG adds some spark to your life”
What’s in Your Boot?
Watch my video of what I carry in my boot and let me know what I am missing….
My Birthday Drive
Today I went on a Birthday Drive with Michel and his new Miata. We stopped in Perth for a sandwich and coffee then again on the way home at The Swan on the Rideau for a drink and some appetizers. The Swan gave me a surprise Birthday mocha cheesecake at no charge.
I am honored to own such a SPECIAL MGB
Jim’s “B” was a late model “B” (a rubber bumper model but converted to chrome bumpers) and the seat belt arrangement was significantly different. The policeman had a hard time understanding why the seat belts in the two vehicles were so different if they both looked like the same year and model.

The great news is that Chantal, my wife, fell in love with that horse and left a deposit. The not so good news is that I officially earned the title of DIPSTICK.
MGB Starter Falling Off, Cooling and Fluids, but still riding

I Love Her, I Love Her Not… MGB

TR-3 A – The Car gets the Girl…
As I drove by, I stopped. She heard the exhaust or smelled the gas. She turned and smiled, and my response was, “I have an empty seat that seems more comfortable, interested?”.
Happy Toosh, Happy Drive :)
My immediate containment action was to stuff a folded towel under the seat to help keep it level.
UPS – Taking Frustration to a NEW Level
To bring the Frustration to a NEW level is quite simple. Due to COVID, Moss Motors does not have any more wheels to sell. They are all back ordered!
