Car Model: mgb gt
Engine: standard at present

Interior: Leather non standard


I am trying to create something that may be pretty good .
A 2.9ltr 24 valve cosworth mg .
Superchipped when installed.
One or two body modification but hopefully very suttle ones
The strip has started
My MG BGT 1979 036.jpg

The car is a 1979 model , and suprisingly very solid.
The donar car for the motor will be from a Ford Scorpio , probably a bit unusual but if successful it will be extremely quick.
The biggest problem will b e electrics.
It may even become a soft top if i can make the car stiff enough . Bit of a challenge.

Long time since i have been on the web site house and carreer moves have put the mg on the back burner .
I will be carrying on this year but the above has changed.
I purchased an old Volvo (T5) for traveling to work ,only paid 400 2and half years later its still superb . Its running at just under 400 bhp .
This motor will bew put into the MG turned through 90 degrees and a manual gearbox added. I will update pictures as i go body work is well on its now.
