So what do the guys at Hendricks Motorsports do to fill their time in the off season??? They take a "spare " Chevy small block from the race shop and build a hot rod MGB of course. This is one of the coolest cars we've ever had...I mean think about putting a 350 small block race engine in an MG and have it look like factory. This kinda reminds me of a Sunbeam Alpine Tiger with a 289 under the hood. It is evident from the attention to detail that the guys who built this were professionals. Just look at the stainless steel work around the headers...the way the headers themselves have been fitted in such a tight space...the side pipes are awesome (and sound way cool too). The quality and craftsmanship doesn't stop there...move inside and check out the machined instrument panel and the fit and finish of the padded leather dash and seats. Finally look at the pictures of the underside of the car...this car was meant to run and was built by race professionals. The car is currently powered by a ZZ4 crate motor that puts out 355 horsepower. The original began to smoke and rather than rebuild it the previous owner (who happens to own a machine shop) installed the current crate motor which has under 2000 miles on it. The 10612 miles on the odometer reflects the miles on the car from the original build. Rear end is Ford 9" and trans is a 3 speed race prepared automatic...brakes are front disc/rear drum Even with all its race capabilities this car is very well behaved on the road...tuns of fun to drive.

The Pick of the Day is a nice example of the British sports car that was once an overwhelming favorite but never gained traction as a collector car
As the ClassicCars.com Journal launches Import Car Month, each of my ‘foreign’ sports cars provides its own variations of wonder and woe
This 1963 model was in storage for 35 years, but has been nicely restored and driven only 51,000 miles since new
By the mid-1970s, the MGB was getting long in the tooth. The sports car had grown heavier due to DOT crash regulations.
Each week, The Daily News @ ClassicCars.com staff gets together for a meeting.
I owned two MGBs long ago — a spanking new ’78 and an old ’73 — but both were gone from me by the year 1985.
The classic MGB has always been an attractive and affordable choice for sports-car fans, but with one complaint: it could use more power.
When the talk turns to affordable classic sports cars, the first one considered is often the MGB, Britain’s most-successful roadster.
Extremely popular in its day, the MGB of Great Britain has never had great value as a collector car.
