The Story —

A Brief History of MGB Time –


First model year of the MBG, the successor to the British MGA continuing a line of successful sports cars.


Purchased by Chuck Cantwell this year.


Chuck won the Central Division Championship again


Chuck moved to California, Clark bought the car and raced it in California, Arizona and Nevada.

ca 1980

(or 1978?) Lisa (aged 12/14) pulls the engine from the car and we bring the engine & transmission home to the workshop. Strip the engine, … new block, rebuilt, then rebuilds the transmission with the overdrive. Then Teenage stuff gets in the way and momentum lost.

ca 1984
