This An American MGB Association Queen B is the ’77 B roadster of Gene and Sherri Enke from Fort Madison, Iowa. Here is the story:
We have owned the car since 1979 and it has been featured in the American MGB Association Octagon before. She might therefore be called “Grandmother Queen B”. The club’s interest and support of our red roadster over the 28 years of ownership is greatly appreciated.
The 1977 MGB roadster was purchased in October of 1979. It is flamingo red and has 97,000 miles with the original drive train and engine. It runs great! It is used during the summer season with the top down in April and back up in October. The body was completely restored several years ago and is in show condition. British Leyland and Morris Garage would be very proud of this roadster.
The December 2010 Octagon’s Queen B is the ’77 B of Don Boudwin. Here is his story:
I bought my 1977 MGB used in 1980 when it had 23,000 miles on it. Thirty years later it still only has 60,100 miles on it.
It sat idle for a number of years but in Oct 2009 I attended a British car show here in Delaware and I was inspired to get my “B” up to speed. I started under the hood, then the interior and trunk, and then the brakes and clutch.
I now have installed a new windshield which was quite a job but it came out okay. I still have some body work and a fresh paint job coming up but the car is road ready and mechanically sound.
The latest issue of the Octagon’s Queen B is the 1977 B of L. Gene Enke. Here is the story:
Our 1977 red Queen B is a “favored toy” which we have owned since 1979. She traveled with us well through the years including holidays on the gulf coast and the east coast. With 90,000 miles and no mechanical issues (all original), she is now relegated to local trips. The top is put down is April and back up in October. She has enjoyed a total body restoration several years ago and is in “show condition”. The car attracts its share of attention and is widely recognized in our area. British Leyland would be proud of its product.
