‘WE JUST LOVE THE VA­RI­ETY’

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

Here’s a pair of MG Car Club mem­bers from op­po­site ends of the coun­try. Steve Davies from Chel­tenham in Glouces­ter­shire (left) is the owner of a 1967 MGB road­ster, while Mike Howlett from Troon in Ayr­shire (right) has a 1969 MGB GT which he’s beefed up with a Range Rover 3.9-litre, fu­elin­jected V8.

Mike ex­plains: ‘2003 was when I bought it. Be­cause I was at work it took me a long time to build it – about six years in to­tal, but then I re­tired and got it fin­ished. Since then it’s done 30,000 miles and has been to the South of France and all over Scot­land. I use it ev­ery day.’

Speak­ing about his road­ster, Steve said: ‘This one’s very much the same spec as how it came, so it’s still run­ning on an

un­leaded head. no mod­i­fi­ca­tions at all re­ally, ev­ery­thing’s original.’

talk­ing about sil­ver­stone, steve says: ‘it’s a nice run across the cost­wolds get­ting here. what i love is the cross-sec­tion and va­ri­ety of cars on show. the Mgb isn’t my only car as i’ve also got a Porsche boxster.’ Mike adds: ‘Me too – i’ve got a bMw Z3.’
