Hi @AnthonyB and yes I have a 66 mk1 mgb, restored in 2004 and enjoyed by me ever since. Re minis, I had one back in the early 70's and bought a mini advantage in 1986/87 for my daughter at Uni. Love minis. Love the mgb, so easy to work on and maintain. My 75 Bay tin top is much more challenging for my old body. You should definitely get a Bay, look through the amazing restorations on the forum to be inspired. Good luck with your search.
