1975 MG MGB GT V8

PostPosted: Sun Jan 24, 2010 9:57 pm    Post subject: The MGB needs a name!! Reply with quote

As I'm getting close to the magical flat 10 second pass or better. I think the MGB needs a proper race name. When I find a name I like I'm going to have it slapped on the sides of the car in vinyl graphics.

Any suggestions chaps????

Like it. And for the graphics, get a silhouette of Stephenson's Rocket which is instantly recognisable.

haha classic 'the 1/4 pounder' is wicked.

on that note ive chosen 'one gallon tank' for my plastic beast.

it was the plastic tank being a plastic boat that clutters the driveway but now with the 4.6ltr (approx 1 gallon) she has been renamed!

I have also been advised that I should have a pic of the old steam engine on the side of the car. But the writing should read "Stephensons Racket" Smile

I've just been in the garage again with my Son who is earning some 2010 runs in the car by moulding the new air intake on the bonnet.
See here:



I like listening to all sorts of music as well. So I'm thinking of bringing the MGB up to date by naming it "Scoop Dog" or "Scoop Doggy Dog" ?
