That's pretty cool, but I could not find the price.

Great looking shop! That looks like a fun place to visit!

No doubt the Datsun 5-speed upgrade makes the MGB cruise much better. But even those transmissions are 35 years old now, and have to be getting hard to find.  Perhaps it is time to engineer a transmission swap using a newer transmission. Is Miata the answer?

Danny--- A Miata trans would be ideal, if someone could engineer it to fit.


If you ever find  yourself in Denver, you MUST go visit Sportscar Craftsmen.  The owner Paul Dierchow has created a shop where immediately upon entering you realize...."I've found the right place!"   It really feels like you are stepping back in time--- except the work they do is absolutely cutting edge.  It's one of the most impressive shops I've seen......and I've been to many!   Make a point to stop by if you are out that's worth it!
