"I have another MG to add to the web page. This one was built by Tim McCracken for a guy named Carl Halcomb. (Tim has the yellow '76 MGB with the Rover motor and VOLVO wheels.) This one is a 1979 MGB that they stuffed full of '94 Ford 5.0L and a T-5 transmission. I took a ride in it a few weeks ago and was very impressed with the final product. It is a very professional installation that even includes air conditioning. The owner wanted the car to look stock inside and out, so they maintained the stock gauges, shifter, wheels, and even kept a single exhaust out the back. Unless you lift the hood on this bad boy, you have no idea it is anything other than a stock MGB. Attached are two pictures I took last month on one of the last 80 degree days we had here in Kansas City."
