- Stanley was the consummate Gentleman. He enjoyed a cruise down Peninsula Link, where he joined us for lunch at T’Gallant Winery, followed by dessert at The Strawberry Farm. A quick visit to say hello to his counterparts at Charlie’s Auto Museum and a rest stop at Arthur’s Seat to take in sweeping views of the bay. Stanley and Darryl were two tired boys at the end of what was a very memorable day. The experience has only enhanced Darryl’s wish to purchasing an MG in the not too distant future. Cherie.
- All the arrangements went smoothly, we had a wonderful time in Stanley. Thanks for your help, especially for arranging it at such short notice. We will happily recommend you to our friends. Sandra
- The drive in Stanley was nostalgia plus. I had a few English cars early in my career (1960s), in the workshop as much as on the road. The MG was good overall.Steering was very sharp on the move, good feedback, gearshift notchy but precise, handling & roadholding good. The growly exhaust was typical MGB but a relief for the ears to get back in the Honda. Eddy

Meet “Stanley” our glorious MGB for hire at the start of Great Ocean Road!
And everyone will find MGBs very easy to drive. They are very comfortable (one 70 year old couple did 1,600 kms over 3 days in one of our MGBs!) have light and precise steering, great road holding and one of the best gearboxes of all time with a lovely ‘snick – snick’ feel and sound. Talking of sound, you will love the melodious cacophony (Oh, all right then – ‘Loud noise’!) from the exhaust.
The MGB has one of the most distinctive exhaust notes of any car from the sixties and Colin, “Stanley’s” owner, has maintained the originality of that exhaust note as well as all the rest of the car following a lengthy and expensive, full renovation.
So you can just sit back, relax and enjoy the wind in your hair (assuming you have some of course), the great visibility and the admiring glances as you cruise some of the best touring roads in Australia.
