By Rick Astley. This book is essential reading for every MGB enthusiast. The mechanical aspects and the restoration of the vehicle have been written about in numerous publications but the so often maligned electrical systems has never before been comprehensively covered. For those new to vehicle electrical systems the book provides a simple primer using mechanical analogies. Each system in the car has its own chapter, with simple and uncluttered circuit diagrams in which each wire can be seen in its real colours. More than a how-to-do guide, the book also explains the “why” of each system and procedure, aiding diagnostics when things don’t go quite as they should. The many fault finding guides help pin those elusive problems down. A must have for those wishing to improve the car for reliability and safety. Ref:212-999

Cover image for SHIRE BOOK - MGSHIRE BOOK - MG $6.00

F. Wilson McComb. 32 pp, 51 ills. MG is Britain’s best-loved sports car. It was created in 1922 by Cecil Kimber, manager of The Morris Garages (hence MG), who began to modify versions of the corporate Bullnose Morris. These led to the stylish T-Series open two-seaters that attained a world-wide reputation. They were succeeded by the popular MGA and the seemingly evergreen MGB, of which over half a million were built between 1962 and 1980. There was no successor, the MG badge being applied solely to corporate saloons, but sports cars returned in 1995 with the launch of the acclaimed MGF. The marque was reborn in 2000 when Rover, its corporate owner and hitherto the property of BMW, returned to British ownership. This edition has been brought up to date by Jonathan Wood. Ref:SPLMG
