Rolling V8 Calendar
In 2018 we had the 45th anniversary of the launch of the MGBGTV8 model in August 1973 and the 40th anniversary of the formation of the V8 Register five years later in 1978. We also had the 25th anniverary of the launch of the RV8. See a series of articles on many of the memorable moments, news items and photos enjoyed by fellow V8 enthusiasts. MGBGTV8 & RV8
