Thinking about buying your first classic two-seat sports car? If you are, and you ask 10 classic-car specialists which one to buy—as we did in a recent issue of Classic Motorsports—if the answers you get are anything like ours, then three of the 10 will recommend the MGB as their first choice, and the MGB will make the top-10 list of every one of them.
