VotW – The Wrenchmen – Working on a 1970 MGB

Not to do two MG videos in a row, but this one is fun. And I like MGs, so there is that two. This week out Video of the Week is the second in a series called “The Wrenchmen” from Hagerty and features work on a 1970 MGB. Seems lots of good videos are coming out of Hagerty these days. Anyway, this series basically has a couple of professional mechanics going around to regular folks with classic cars and helping them over some rough spots to get them back on the road.

The description of this video is…

Three days, two Wrenchmen, one garaged MGB and a bunch of problems. Wrenchmen Davin and Matt roll through South Carolina to help David and Jocelyn get their 1970 MGB back on the road after being parked for far too long. The MGB’s carbs are full of fouled gasoline, and the bearings and brakes are shot too. Additionally, the electrical system might need work (or is it just the timing?) and the shocks are leaking. Will the Wrenchmen get David and Jocelyn’s MGB ripping from car show to car show, again?

Now first of all, who wouldn’t mind have some free labor come in and do some work on your car? I know that I could keep these guys busy on any number of products for quite a while. Secondly, watch the video and you will see that they even addressed some issues that were not problem spots right off. Nice to have them take care of the important extras.

Hopefully, the video will entertain you and maybe even inspire some of us to get out in the garage, turn a few wrenches, and get a few of those lingering projects done.
