2012 is the Year of The B
When the last MGB rolled from the production line in Abingdon on the 22nd of October, 1980, it ended an era of sports car motoring that began there over 18 years before. The production stopped but the driving never will.
The factory paint colors included at least 59 different shades of black, blue, grey, white, yellow and red. In the first year of production, there were only 6 colors: Tartan Red, Iris Blue, Chelsea Grey, Old English White, Black and British Racing Green.
