Bargain of the year last year I think - fantastic model for the price.

:lol :lol :lol And big buckets they would have needed to be too!!! hmy My Dad nearly bought one when we lived in Boston in the 70s but like yourself sense prevailed and he bought a lovely 1976 Datsun 280Z instead! :cheers He brought the Datsun back to Ireland in 1978 when we moved to Dublin and it was like nothing else on the road here at the time! Unfortuately scumbag joyriders stole it in 1983 and practically destroyed it (they wrapped it's long bonnet around a lamp-post) and even though it was repaired to a high standard, it was never the same again and Dad sold it. It's replacement was a nice car mind you, a gold coloured '82 BMW 525i which in 1983 was the height of style!!! :cheersvegasracer said:Great model! Great pics, guys! Reminds me of my youth, and of the time I ALMOST bought a 1:1 MGB until good sense prevailed... I just did not have enough buckets to hold the parts that would have fallen off...
:iagree :lol :lol :lol The MGB was really yesterday's news in the mid-70s so I think it wasn't too tough a choice for Dad! :cheersRichardM said::lol :lol Few things seem scarier to me than owning a MGB in Boston. Good choice by your father Ronan.
Indeed! I think this model compares favourably with some of my AAs at half the price. These were going for $25! :cheersLUW said:Wow, now I can see why Richard has always been so excited about this car (the 1:18 :giggle). Is that almost AUTOart quality on a budget model? Splendid!
Thanks Bart. I'm hoping to bag a Renault or two from UH after seeing how good this MGB is.BVR said::drool :drool :drool That's an awesome car and model Richard!!!! :danbanna
Really have to get this one someday :happy
