My wife bought the B for me as a retirement gift in 2004 . It had 32000 original miles and everything leaked and needed replaced. Thanks to Victoria British Ltd. we restored her and now have 88000 miles and smiles. We love British cars and we love Victoria British Ltd. I am the third owner and have no desire to part with her.

I was always a British Sports Car enthusiast and was finally able to acquire one in 1998. It was a decent driver and I did so until the fall of 2003 at which time I decided to do a full restoration.

I have a 1979 MGB. A friend of mine, brought it down to California from Arizona, in hopes to sell it. I drove it around town a few months. I did some little things like electrical and we both did some tune ups on it to get it running fairly well. I drove it up and down PCH and I fell in love with this car. So, I bought it and took on a project.

David Noonan 1971 MGB

A long story shortened: I took Mechanical Engineering at the University of Rochester in NY, graduated ’64, a year I bought my first British roadster, a ’64 Triumph Spitfire, a really-dumbed-down model hoping to snag poor guys like me, which it did - $2100 new, traded in my VW bug for $1100, so affordable. Gave it to my brother when I went in the Peace Corps, bought a used Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint GT in Italy on the  way home. Married in ’68, moved to LA, 2 daughters. Bought and restored a ’65 Datsun Fair Lady, an unabashed knock-off of the MG with 2 SU-like piston carburetors. Loved the car, but it almost killed me when a woman in an Olds pulled out in front of me when I was going 35 – had a lap belt on which kept the injuries to 3 broken ribs, a shattered tooth, and a hundred plus stitches from hitting the non-ergonomic roof latch….but the biggest tragedy was the loss of the car….

Bruce Lamar 1971 MGB Ragtop

My "first" love was a '71 MGB when I was 17 years old. My father and I got up early one Sunday morning and made the trek to San Francisco's British Motors in May of 1971 (yes, dealerships were open on Sundays on those days) and met with a gentleman named Al Arth. Mr. Arth was, I believe the sales manager at the time and treated us as though we were buying a Rolls or any number of cars priced at many multiples of the little ragtop we were about to take home. My father and Mr. Arth made that purchase special in a way I've never experienced before or since when purchasing a car.

Ian Macnab 1970 Midget

It has been over fifty years since my love affair with Spridgets began. After completing high school in 1967 I bought my first car. It was a 1965 Austin Healey Sprite painted British Racing Green and it was love at first sight. The car cost $1,300 (CDN); I paid $700 towards it and my father loaned me the balance which I repaid over the next two years. I drove my Sprite through four years of university and two years of graduate school. Then I traded it for a Mazda but that car was never as dear to me as my Sprite. I even tried without success to buy my Sprite back from its new owner. Time passed and I still longed for another Spridget.

I have owned this MGB limited edition since 1980. I drove it for 9 years, and then garaged it for occasional pleasure driving. I have a complete file at home, but my recollection is that the Sept 2002 engine rebuild was right at 100,00-100,500 miles.
