Very pretty. The wood dash is not original, but then who am I to complain - I have the same dash. These ARE a blast to drive... he’s right about that.

Cheers,
Kevin

It's Girl Scout Cookie time 😊

Kristi Liebel
 

Hello all,

It is Girl Scout Cookie Time 😊 (well almost)!

This cookie season, like everything else, is going to be quite different then most and because of COVID our council is allowing us to do pre-orders - you tell us what you want and once the sale actually starts (Jan 21st) then we can complete the transaction. We will also have the option for you to order online (I have not heard officially but shipping costs around $6 I think) and your cookies will be delivered right to your door and the girls will get credit for your order (link will be sent out on the 21st). We just found out last night that we are not able to hold any kind of cookie booth this year (at least at this time) so our personal sales are going to be very important.

Our daughters, Wynter and CaeLyn, wanted me to contact you on their behalf. If you do not have a Girl Scout in your life and would like to get some cookies please consider purchasing them from Wynter and CaeLyn. If interested you can just contact me and we can set up a time to get them to you.

Thanks for your time and thank you for your support of Wynter, CaeLyn and the Girl Scouts! All cookies are $4 a box again this year and our Gluten Free (which is not shown on the order form) is $5 a box. We do have a new cookie - Toast-Yay! - I found it to be delish especially if you like french toast! This is also the last year for the S’Mores cookies - we will not know what will be replacing them until closer to next year’s cookie sales.

Re: Identify Wheels

Harry Hurst
 

Another small tidbit: Rubery Owen, part of the Owen Group of manufacturing companies, was the major force behind BRM (British Racing Motors) from the mid 50s on. They won the World Championship for Graham Hill in 1962. So, your MGB shares technology with a Formula One car!

These are original equipment, '70 to '80, MGB ROstyle wheels.  Ones in similar condition are available on eBay for $20 to $30 each.  The center caps go for about $10 each.

Factoid: ROstyle were invented by the British firm Rubery Owen. This style was very popular in the '60s and '70s and American manufacturers picked it up and called them Magnum and then Magwheels.

Happy New Year Everyone!

I purchased some items for my Austin Cooper S and these wheels were included in the sale.

The seller indicated they were from an MGB.  Can someone identify what they may be?  Do they have any value?  If anyone is interested let me know.




The tires do not look very good.  Their size is 175/75/14.

Thanks in advance.
