To help clean up London’s air, the Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) operates 24 hour a day, 7 days a week, every day of the year, exempt Christmas day. However, if your classic MG is classed as Historic, which all models of MGB are because they are more than 40 years old, they are ULEZ exempt.

The first six months of 2021 were quite unlike the first six months of 2020. Most would prefer to put behind them the difficulties faced last year, as the early signs of a global pandemic became apparent and disruption to normal life took hold. This year, there has been more to cheer about. Football gave the nation a welcome lift, if not the fairytale ending, lockdown restrictions are set to lift and events such as the Goodwood Festival of Speed and British Grand Prix have sped off the start line.

Judged on the results of sales, car enthusiasts and investors alike have put their foot down and given the classic car market an appreciable boost. Prices of MGBs, particularly the GT model are still rising, so get in there quickly as the’re still an good investment opportunity.
