1967 MGB, the history of my car


#1

I just cleaned up my 1967 MGB. Mineral Blue. Kind of rare for that year. Most were white, red, black, Primrose yellow or British racing green. 109,000 miles. I am the second caretaker. Bought her in 2006. In 2008 I met an older gentleman who asked if I was the original owner. I said I was the second. He then asked if I bought the car from a police officer in East Islip NY. I did. I asked how he knew that, and he said he sold the car new to him in 1967! He gave me his name and number. Sure enough, I checked the original bill of sale, and his name and number were on it! Amazing he remembered it after 41 years.
