Classics Monthly Summer 2010Classics Monthly Magazine - July 2012 - ran an eight page feature covering three important MG anniversaries 65 years of the MG Y, 50 years of the MGB and 10 years of the MG TF. 


Our MGB Roadster was selected by the magazine to represent the MGB as they wanted an MGB that gets used!

The three cars all met up at Kimber House in Abingdon, headquarters of the MG Car Club for a detailed photo shoot and a test drive.

The full article is well worth a read but I have picked out the following snippets which relate to the journalists view of our MGB.


The Open Road's MGB in Classics Monthly MagazineOwners View - Tony Merrygold - 1969 MGB Roadster


Our 1969 MGB Roadster is the first car we bought when my wife and I set up 'The Open Road' classic car hire company.  It proved so popular and  reliable we've kept it ever since. 


It's been used by TV companies and even starred in a wedding proposal video.  the MGB is a feelgood car and everyone who hires it has nothing but praise for its looks and how it drives.


Journalist's summary


The interior is wonderfully accommodating and period perfect. SNV 650G is not just user-friendly either. It's a great driver's car, with the well maintained B series engine providing a wonderful soundtrack and decent turn of speed.  The gearchange is sublime.  With minimal movement between gears and marvellous precision, it puts 'moderns' to shame and the overdrive is a real boon.  This terrifically tactile car is a delight to drive.  Taut, rattle-free, peppy, with a nicely honed chassis, and full of character.  I can Appreciate why the 'B' has become an 'A-lister'.
