In the summer of 1987 my wife and I drove our 1977 MGB to High Hampton resort in Cashiers, NC. The drive was great and playing several rounds of golf made for a great vacation. High Hampton in 1987 itself on being rustic with no phones or televisions in the room. This may explain what happened as we left.
I drove the car up to entrance and started loading the vehicles. A crowd quickly gathered on the porch with the question, will it all fit? As I packed the 2 sets of golf clubs, golf shoes, suitcases, and others essentials for a successful golf vacation the crowd looked on in awe as my wife and I drove away headed home with the top down to enjoy the beautiful weather.
We still have the '77B, it's driving days are over for now as it awaits a trip to the beauty shop (body shop) and a rebuild of the engine. We now drive a '64 MGB and "73 Triumph GT6.
