This blog will expand on themes and topics first mentioned in my book, "The Automobile and American Life." I hope to comment on recent developments in the automobile industry, reviews of my readings on the history of the automobile, drafts of my new work, contributions from friends, descriptions of the museums and car shows I attend and anything else relevant.

An Old English White 1964 MGB
A photo taken by Ed Garten at the recent Dayton Concours. It was only a year or two after the B got into the market that the folks at MG switched to a "white" white. Old English white is what we today would think of more like a cream color. This is an example of an early B, in my opinion the best one to have. You get the advantages of roll up windows and a light, free of emissions-controlled B engine. With clean, small bumpers, this car is to die for!
