Here in the states people see the MGB and say “Had One” to which I reply “Got one”

classic car enthusiasm captured in perfection … no need to have an MGB on your bucket list to enjoy this very well made video.

This is it for me. My dad had MGs when I was a kid. If I had but one car to choose from it would be hard for me not to pick a MGB GT in any of its varibles. These are going to escalate quickly in their value as the market is starting to become weary of the ultra cars$$$$ and are looking for the real drivers of the sports car world. These are Pininfarina styled cars. They have enough in the qualifications to be considered in the realm of the real and iconic sports cars. Great to see this car on Petrolicious. I been waiting for ways of the Petrolized to be grace upon this car. thanks it made my day.

The only MG that it matters to me

But still, I just loved the secenery and the passion the owner has for it!

And to all of us, that start projects that end up being put aside, remember – just take one night per week and it will get finished!

I’m curious about the road where it was filmed, Is this an airstrip or perhaps the streets for a future neighborhood? it would make a great race track.

It is the racetrack – icelandic style.

MGB, no matter what guise, has always been one of my least favorite cars. I owned one, and I can understand the appeal, but I just couldn’t get into it. But watching the film makes me so want one, what a great film, and what a great car!!

” My MGB-GT she’s a runner now .. MGB-GT ”

Fact is the only thing better MG wise is an MGB-GT V8 😎 As for the cinematography .. 10+ .. location … 10+ .. the owner .. 10+ to the power of ten … . but the soundtrack ? …. -5 . I mean seriously with all the innovative Icelandic music available you go for ” River Dance ” wanna be electronics and New Age sludge ?

I have always had a soft spot for the MGB GT, throw in an unusual location and you have a great film. Thanks, JD
