        I know I'm late to this thread but I spoke today with the person 
rebuilding my MGB motor (Henry Dodgen of Dodgen's garage for all you 
people in S.C who need a terrific motor rebuild) who recently had an 
offer on his 76 B.  This is the cleanest B I have seen and was completel 
rebuilt over the course of 2 years and 3 months.  Interestinly it was not 
rebuilt to stock specs and instead of just BRG was painted BRG with gold 
metal flake.  (Henry, it seems, is an old time hot rodder)

        Anyway, he was showing me the trophies he has won (15 out of 16 
shows) and said that at the latest he was approached by a person in town 
who offered him 10K for the B.  Henery politely declined and the 
prospective buyer asked how much henry wanted for the B.  Henry said he 
would probably want between 12 and 14 thousand, whereupon mr. buyer 
pulled out his checkbook.  Henry then politely declined mr. buyers 12 
thousand dollar offer.

        I told Henry that I would have a hard time saying no to that kind 
of offer, but Henry just said that he would only spend it on another one 
and then wouldn't have one to drive for a year or more.

        By the way, Henry is now thinking about purchasing an MGA that 
one of the local townspeople has in a barn with the fenders off.  No rust 
and the drivetrain is complete and supposedly running for $1000.00.  I 
told Henry that if he didn't get it to let me know!
