Modern MGB

MGB owners say that if you want a Modern MGB buy a Mazda Miata/MX-5 but what if you could take an MGB and turn it into a modern version of the British Classic MGB making it just as reliable as a Miata/MX-5 or any modern car.

My restoration is what they call a Restomod, Restored & Modified, which is the act of altering a motor vehicle in such a way as to increase performance, reliability, style, or comfort exceeding the original manufacturer's design. Another way of looking at it is to take a classic car, update functional components with modern technology while not modifying the appearance so much that it no longer resembles the classic car you started with.

This is exactly the approach I have taken. It does have some exterior modifications but not so much that you cannot tell it is a RB MGB. I added many components of modern technology, increased performance, and turned my British Classic MGB into an extremely reliable daily driver with all the comforts of a modern sports car.
