MGB Roadster MOT and Valet

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Only a few minor alterations required to get our MGB Roadster fully up to date with a current MOT.

As you can see from the pictures, the car is already absolutely beautiful and wants for very little. As she’s been stored away for a number of years so a good clean would help bring her back to life.

We managed to twist the arm of Paul Johnson Valeting to pop by this evening to carry out a full valet. I was keen for him to concentrate a lot of his efforts on the multi-spoke wheels. The wheels were starting to show the first signs of wear so now was the perfect time to tackle the issue.

It was a late finish for both Craig and Paul but absolutely worth it…[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_gallery type=”image_grid” images=”11332,11333,11334,11335,11336,11337,11338,11339,11340,11341,11342,11343,11344″][/vc_column][/vc_row]

Jack visits Museo Lamborghini and Museo Casa Enzo Ferrari in Modena, Italy

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Our good friend and associate Jack Brown is very fortunate, with his job, to be able to travel the world and see some of the most amazing sites. This week he has been to Modena in Italy, home of the Ferrari and Lamborghini museums.

Museo Casa Enzo Ferrari (also known as Museo Enzo Ferrari) is a museum in Modena focused on the life and work of Enzo Ferrari, the founder of the Ferrari sports car marque. The museum complex includes two separate buildings, a former warehouse that belonged to Enzo Ferrari’s father, and a new building designed by the architectural practice Future Systems. The new 6,000 square metres (65,000 sq ft) building houses, in a large gallery, a permanent exhibition displaying some of the most noteworthy Ferrari’s automobiles, including rare cars of the 1950s, Formula One race cars and more recent sports cars.

The exhibits feature Ferrari, Alfa Romeo and Maserati cars and also a large video-projection depicting the life of Enzo Ferrari.

The Museo Lamborghini (or Lamborghini Museum) is an automobile museum owned and operated by Automobili Lamborghini S.p.A in Sant’Agata Bolognese, Emilia-Romagna, Italy. The two-storey museum opened in 2001, and was renovated in June 2016 to provide exhibit space for more models. The goal of the museum is to cover all major milestones in the Lamborghini’s history. For this purpose, the museum displays a family tree that shows all the models ever produced by the company. The current gallery contains iconic supercars such as the 350 GT and the Sesto Elemento, and one-off and concept cars such as the Veneno and the Miura concept.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_gallery type=”image_grid” images=”11229,11230,11231,11232,11233,11234,11235,11236,11237,11238,11239,11240,11241,11242,11243,11244,11245,11246,11247,11248,11249,11250,11251,11252,11253,11254,11255,11256,11257″ title=”Museo Casa Enzo Ferrari, Modena, Italy”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_gallery type=”image_grid” images=”11258,11259,11260,11261,11262,11263,11264,11265,11266,11267,11268,11269,11270,11271,11272,11273,11274,11275,11276,11277,11278,11279,11280,11281,11282,11283,11284,11285,11286,11287,11288,11289″ title=”Museo Lamborghini, Modena, Italy”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
