All at sea with an MG

Practical Classics (UK) - - TEAM ADVENTURE -

My friend Peter asked me to help him find an MGB GT and even­tu­ally found a white car that had been re­built by Robin Hamil­ton, a one-time As­ton Martin driver. Peter flew to Manch­ester from his home in Benidorm to pick it. On the re­turn trip, half­way across the Bay of Bis­cay, Peter awoke to si­lence and no lights – the ferry had bro­ken down! The crew fixed the en­gine and they con­tin­ued to San­tander. Peter drove the rest of the way home and the car is now in the car park be­neath his apart­ment. So Peter bought a 45-year-old car, drove it 1400-odd miles and the only break­down was the ruddy ship!
