What a fun ride!
Ran into the local British car guru at work a few weeks ago (Ted Schumacher of TS Imported Auto). He had a sweet MGB V8 Roadster in for some work. Not available from the factory like this ( a limited number of V8 MGBGTs (coupes) were sold, but not ragtops.
Nice 3.5 liter aluminum block Rover motor with a cam, four barrel, aluminum intake and headers. Basically 300 hp in a go cart. Said I had seen many of these over the years but never ridden in one. "Jump in!", I was told...
Yea, Though I walk through the valley of Riceburners, I shall fear no turbo For thou art with me. Thy rod and thy piston, they comfort me. Thou hast annointed my bearings with oil. My car overpowers. Surely traction and victory shall follow me all the days of my life; And I shall dwell in the house of the V8 FOREVER.
This will be an attempt to chronicle my activity as a stove-up wannabe mechanic/machinist in rural Ohio that must feed his true passion for being in a dirty tshirt and jeans by putting on a starched shirt and tie by day to provide for my family and keep sufficient disposable funds available to feed my need for more old discarded junk to tinker with and otherwise clutter my day to day living.
