I took Pearline for a test drive this afternoon to see how she did.

Spent a nice Saturday afternoon replacing Pearline’s fuel tank, with help from a friend.
I started the first weekend of 2023 off with a drive, and a tow. Sigh.
An update on my previous post about Pearline overheating.
I’m having some issues with Pearline getting too warm on drives.
I’ve been wanting to go to the Oklahoma City Coffee and Cars meetup for almost a year. Today, I had my chance.
Sometimes, in fixing a problem, you make it worse.
We’ve had a bit of nice weather this week. Between bad weather and the general stress of dealing with COVID protocols, I felt the need to get out of the hous...
Several months ago, I wrote about some fuel system issues after Angie and I went on a nice Sunday drive. It’s taken 4 months, but here’s an update.
Today is Pearline’s birthday. Exactly 50 years ago today, she came rolling off the assembly line in Abington, Oxfordshire, England.
Two weeks ago, Angie and I decided to get Sunday brunch at a state park that’s about an hours drive away. It was a humid and cloudy morning when we took of...
After doing yard work, I washed Pearline and then drove around my hometown to take some beauty shots at local historic sites.
I made a couple of updates to the MGB today and then took her for a drive.
With the MGB now ready for the road, I’ve been thinking a bit about the future.
On April 23, I ordered copies of the “official” documentation for Pearline. I got the shipping notice on May 14. The certificates arrived today via internati...
I’ve been working on a site for Pearline’s adventures. I’m now ready to show it off. Warning, gory technical details ahead.
This is a text-only post, which means nothing good is happening.
Even though Pearline isn’t able to move on her own, she can still pose for a few photos.
This is where the story takes a sad turn.
Today’s the big day–my daughter’s Senior Prom. All the work of the last year comes down to today. No big deal, no pressure.
I got Pearline back from the body shop today. I have 2 days until my daughter is supposed to drive the car to her Senior Prom. There’s a lot of dust everywhe...
Stopped at the body shop this morning to see how Pearline is faring. Bonnie (the office manager) saw me pull up and she met me at the door. “Do you want to s...
It seems so strange to have updates on two consecutive days, but it’s been a whirlwind of activity after 4 1/2 months of slow (but steady) progress.
Despite being a day of tomfoolery, I have some real news to share.
It’s been a long 6 weeks since the last post, so here’s where we stand on the body work and paint.
I have tried to not make a pest of myself at the body shop, but I hadn’t been by in a few weeks. Bonnie, the office manager, greeted me warmly in the office ...
I stopped in at the body shop today as I was nearby. I’m trying to not make a pest of myself, but it’s hard not knowing what’s going on.
I stopped in at the body shop after 2 weeks to see the progress. They’ve removed the bumpers, the body fittings, pulled the dents, and filled most everything...
Now that I’ve found a body shop, I worked to remove the parts that shouldn’t be there. The excess trim pieces, the convertible top connectors, the chrome ba...
I took Pearline to a couple of body shops in the area. A couple flat refused to even consider the job because they only do insurance work. One of these peopl...
I got Pearline back from Mike at Glass Auto on a Saturday in early October. It was a cloudy, cool day, so not a great day for driving with the top down. My ...
I dropped Pearline off at Glass Auto in OKC on in the middle of August. Two weeks later, I had a doctor appointment nearby, so I stopped by to get Mike’s est...
It’s 2020 and everything sucks. My daughter didn’t get to attend her Junior Prom because of COVID. But, that didn’t stop us from getting some photos anyway.
We’ve had the MGB since my son was 3 years old. It’s always been our fun car. For his Junior Prom, my son and 2 of his friends rented a limo for them and th...
