The trouble with that is it appears you tried to post straight from your hard drive. The pic has to be hosted on a server somewhere which is why it wants a website.

Now that I look further into it. It appears that car domain has something in place to prevent copying a URL of the photos.

Peyton My dad had a 75 "b" was a hunk a junk when he got it! He paid 500 for it and brought it home on a trailer! I didnt pay much attention to it when he got it, but i loved it when he was done, he never let me drive it though!! Heres what i recall about it, He took off what he called a strangleburg card and put on twin SU carbs removed the bumpers and fibreglassed on a sebring body kit, lowered the suspension because car sat too high something to do with safety laws and bumpers having to be so high off the ground, Dont know what he did to exhaust, i know there was a header, and exhaust tip was big and shiny! he replaced whole interior as well, car was cherry when he was done, The paint however was far from stock, he did the whole Austin Powers shaguar paint on it!

hope the pics worked!

mjd4277 So far I haven't had any carburetor issues(the previous owner retrofitted a Weber carburetor for better durability and reliability) and the car has started up everytime. You have to remember at that time British Leyland(the former owners of the MG brand) was feeling the pinch from the then new emission and safety regulations just like everyone else. So in order to comply the original dual SU HS-4 carburetors were replaced with a single Zenith Stromberg carburetor. The ride height was increased by 1 inch and the rear anti-roll bar was removed on later models(which compromised some of the handling characteristics of the MGB and Midget). The BMC engines have a reputation of being bulletproof,as long as they're maintained properly(my car is living proof-37 years and 79K miles later it still runs like clockwork).
