Just curious, in the photo galleries section, is there any way you could separate the MGB GTs from the MGBs? I am more into the GTs and it would be easier to look at the GT builds without going through all the regular MGB builds. You have the V8s in their own section so I am guessing you could do the same. Not sure if anyone else would agree with me, just a thought.

RMO 699F, there are 2 sections. MGB and MGB GT V8. Basically I am looking to get a 3rd section to separate the MGB from the MGB GT.

Is it really that big of a deal? One of the columns has whether the car is an MGB or MGB GT so all you have to do is scan down that column and focus on th GT's. Now, if Curtis really wanted to get fancy he's make it a searchable database... Then we could look at all the cars with 16" wheels... Or Mustang radiators, or maybe my.favorite... All the cars with disc brakes on all 4 corners and no brake booster.

I'm just kidding Curtis, I can only imagine the hassle it'd be to try & maintain that much data let alone add a database to make it searchable.

J Man, I guess I see your point, but it would be simple to bookmark all 30 GTs on your own computer favorites and you could review and analyze to your hearts content. Again, I see what you are saying, but putting them under your favorites is a very simple way to skin the cat.
cheers

No, it is not that big of a deal. It was just a simple question to see if something could be done. it is no different than if any of you had an idea of a way to possibly make the site better and sharing it with the guy that runs the place. I enjoy what Curtis has provided for us so it will not break my heart if he decides not to make the changes.

Jason, I see you are in NW Ohio. I get up to Toledo a few times a year, are you near there? I live just off I 75 exit 68 (Tipp City) If you are ever close by, feel free to stop in and say hello. I have a '74 Sebring Gt that I would enjoy showing you!
cheers

Not to mention every Arkley Midget ever built resides with Mike in Tipp City.

I am a little outside of Defiance. My uncle is in Huber Heights, we get down there only about once a year. I worked in Dayton for almost 3 years in the late '90s before going back to Columbus (where I grew up). Isn't there a show down that way, put on by a Triumph club if I remember right?

J Man, yes there is a British car show in area. It is the largest brit show in Ohio hands downs down. We typically get 325/350 cars each year. The show is put on jointly by the MG Car Club SW Ohio and the Miami Valley Triumphs club. It is held, every year, the first Saturday in August at EastWood MetroPark in Dayton, Ohio.
