Thoroughly enjoyed our day trip with the MGB, I would recommend it to anyone who would like to experience what it would have been like to take a trip in the English country side, it certainly looked, felt and sounded great. The MGB was very authentic and I was able to gain a true feeling of what it is really like to drive a sports car of yester year without the aid of power assisted brakes and steering. We take for granted all the modern advancements in modern cars to the point where we loose the feeling of truly driving a car. Especially through the sweeping roads of the country side of Picton and The Oaks. I am in the process of considering purchasing an MGB and it was an excellent way of experiencing a truly authentic drive of a 60s sport car at the same time turning a lot of heads, as you cruise around.
While, in retrospect, I rated the experience as Good. That is mainly because it reminded me of what cars were like to drive in the 1960's and how far cars have come since.I have the following particular comments:-I found the car difficult to drive mainly due to the lack of power steering. The car would have been designed for narrower tyres than are used today. I didn't check but suspect the tyres on the car were much wider than those for which the car was designed.If the brakes were power assisted it was not evident. I considered I had to avoid any risk of an emergency stop as the brakes seemed fairly ineffective.The hand brake would not hold the car, even on a modest hill. Fortunately I discovered this before it became an accident risk.The lack of a sun visor was a problem when driving home into the Western sun although, with an open top car, I suspect nothing can be done about this.The gear box was excellent and, although I had not driven a manual car for over 15 years, changing gear never presented a problem.The car cruised beautifully on the way up to Terrigal and back.The overall experience was not helped by the dreadful traffic jam getting onto Pennant Hills Road and then all the way along Pennant Hills Road until we reached the freeway North.
