I am restoring a '74 chrome bumper, wire wheel MGB roadster. 100% analog and is the apex of what naturally aspirated cars could do back then. Dual SU carbs, point distributor (remember "dwell meters"), a sweet engine note, 4 speed trany, and a blast to drive.

Not a fancy concourse car, nor a daily driver.

Often, I am in awe when I see how the original engineering teams solved problems. Other times, I get real pissed when I see when they didn't think it through.

It is my physical therapy and a LOT of mental therapy! Keeps my mind off my health issues, chemo, etc.
