We have two Mgb's and not a single leak, or electrical issue, or any issue for that matter.

There's an old, unrestored MGA sitting not a mile from where I live. It used to be under a tarp. It spent this winter exposed. I shudder to think what shape it is in. The owner, well, let's just say I have a less than stellar opinion of his intelligence for how he's handled this classic automobile. It's shameful.

The grill is good. Buzz is wrong. This is not a Twinky. The racing wheels had knock offs like a spoked wheel. This is just a straightforward A. I've had mine since '70. It was my first car. It has never left me stranded. It was restored about 20 years ago and still goes on summer trips.

My dad loved his TR7, and I've always wanted a 6

Triumph TR series did get pretty crap. Family friend had a TR7 as a daily driver. BIG MISTAKE

A beautiful classic car you can get for around $25k restored. Not bad at all.
Description: Its direct replacement was the MGB, which was in production from 1962 until 1980. All told, over 100,000 MGAs were built in just seven years. There are plenty of MGBs still on the road today but there...

This is a 1600 not a twin cam
Description: Fortunately, the mechanical problems that once plagued it have been sorted out and Twin Cams are much more reliable today. It has an asking price of $27,900 which we think is a bit high. Apparently ot...

Love that the steering wheel is the size of the wheels.
