What I Got Today!


Brac

Recommended Posts

Hey Oldenough, you know of course that Richard Thompson has a song called, oddly enough, MGB-GT! Might I suggest the version off his live "Two Letter Words" cd from 1994. Typical Thompson guitar fireworks. MGB-GT: Lyrics by Richard Thompson.

Oh, I've got a little car and she might go far
She's the mistress of my heart now
She's a '65 with an overdrive
And I fixed her in every part now

Two in the front and two in the back
A hundred and ten on the old hog's back

My MGB-GT, she's a runner now
MGB-GT
Oh, my MGB-GT, she's a runner now

Oh, I welded the sills and the old floor pan
Cut the rust with the torch and the hacksaw
Took the restyles off, put the spoke wheels on
Got a brand new Salisbury axle

When I come to town the girls all smile
They say, "Here's the man with the retro style"

My MGB-GT, she's a runner now
MGB-GT
Oh, my MGB-GT, she's a runner now

Lockheed discs and twin SU's
Original chrome on the grill now
She looks like a dream in her racing green
Competition's standing still now

I sprayed up her body, I strengthened the frame
I stripped her right down and I built her up again

Now an Alpine's fine if you've got the time
And a Healey'll set you back some
And a TR4 costs a little bit more
But it don't have the same attraction

Hard top handy, in case of the weather
I don't care if it rains forever

In my MGB-GT, she's a runner now
MGB-GT
In my MGB-GT, she's a runner now
MGB-GT
In my MGB-GT, she's a runner now

Nice! I'll be interested to hear how they sound, especially with the crossovers you have in place.

 

 

me three... we'll see

:)

 

Is that the cast frame Bob sells ? Only asked because I used 4 of those in the mwm's considering the were half the price of the K 43's used. Claude tested them compared to the k43 and and both of Bobs drivers actually went a little lower, they just couldn't take the power the K43's could which would never be used in a house anyway.

Picked these up at the thrift store. H/K 3270 receiver, HD 720 cdp..also included a Hk  DC-520 Cassette Deck new in the box...a nice set-up for the garage for $100. I'm quite pleased with the sq of the receiver.

Dealing with obligatory family time at the moment, but i was able to quickly set it up and take a picture. It's bigger than I realized - still small compared to most emotiva amps, but much much larger and heavier than the little t-amps I've been messing with for the last year or so. It sure looks good as a gear stack.
