I bought my 1975 MGB for my 19th birthday in March 1979 in National City Ca. I was stationed on a guided missile cruiser in San Diego, 32nd st. I paid the car loan off after a cruise with my sea pay. I drove it to the east coast in 1982 and drove it to the east coast around Philadelphia. In the late 90s it went back to California, in Dillon Beach, Marin Co. and now cruises based in the east Oakland hills.

my baby, owned for 38 years since 1979. runs great, jubilee edition, storied history, respray just dried, back soon. pixes of travels and rolling restoration:
