'67 Group 6 MGC

How's this for a surprising California sighting? Still wearing UK plates, this is a genuine Group 6 MGC GTS; one of only two such cars that were built at Abingdon, in fact. Known affectionately as 'Mabel', it was driven by Paddy Hopkirk in both the 1967 Targa Florio and the '68 Sebring 12hrs, as well as successfully completing the gruelling Nürburgring 84hrs. I reckon the old girl's earned a little retirement R&R in the California sun, don't you?
Spotted by on Christmas eve.
