For Sale "The Beast"

After much deliberation and heart felt angst I have decided to sell my beloved MGB GT V8 known affectionately as the "The Beast". This fine example of MG going bonkers down in what was the Factory at Abingdon, by creating a 3.5 Litre two seater sports car squeezing in to the relatively small engine bay the indestructible Buick  V8, proved eventually to be commercial suicide because the car had to compete with the new V8 Ford Capri which was much more successful causing MG to stop production soon after.

I have owned the V8 since 2001 and built many gardens and show gardens with the car using a  small trailer.

I must have turned a few heads at RHS Tatton Park flower show during the build of my first show garden in 2002 manly because it was so odd for some idiot to be using such a car in the first place instead of the usually four seat cab Mitsubishi 4x4`s which many of the garden designers and landscapers had at the time.

The car was used thereafter has my every day transport, it was always a good ice breaker when meeting clients and during garden builds wonderful advertising to.

Anyway, the time as come to lose the old girl to raise some much needed funds for future projects.
