At the risk of starting a flame-war, there is something to be said for
reliable transportation. While it is true that the rice burners don't have
the soul of the MG, they require much less maintenance. I'm sure some of
you will disagree & will present anecdotal evidence, but the perception that
LBCs are unreliable didn't come out of thin air. Too many people that I
know or have heard about have been stranded by Brit cars, to just dismiss
the problem. Truly, LBCs are a labor of love & I dearly love my MGB, but
don't have the time to devote to it that it needs. MG's will always have a
place in my heart.
So go ahead, flame if you must...
