"Dear Jesmond & Gloria, A very big unexpected surprise on a perfect Wednesday afternoon 22nd May, our lovely Triumph arrived at the front door. She travelled very well and arrived with no damage, just a couple of rub marks which polished out. We were very pleased and excited to meet her, as you can imagine she got a thorough looking over and out for a short drive. We have booked her into our mechanic this coming Monday for a full mechanical service before we take her out on the open road, this is a good way to get to know her and to understand what her future needs will be. Thank you so much for your card, bottle of wine and Classic Driver magazine, the seat belts are still in the box and will probably stay there. You have been a lovely couple to deal with, everything and more has progressed as you said it would, our very best wishes for your future success."Gary & Joyce Parker, Hastings, New Zealand
The MGB GT in rubber-bumpered form is still your cheapest way into 'B ownership.
Given how aghast aficionados were at its Federalised bumpers at the time of its launch, we can see how that's happened. But it's funny how the passage of time has really softened those controversial looks - a testament to the design department at Longbridge, which oversaw the installation of those bumpers on the 1975 cars.
In reality, the MGB's modifications were superbly executed and the bumpers flow well with the existing car's styling.
Prices are low compared with older chrome-bumpered cars and you get pretty much the same package.

The MGB is Britain's most popular classic car with good reason: it's widely available; has great parts and specialist support; and as long as you're not too demanding an owner, they are really good fun to drive. And let's be honest, that B-series engine sounds good when rasping through the exhaust system.
