About Us

Pete Cosmides

I am a certified British car nut, as many of us are. I purchased my 1975 MGB brand new at the age of 17 and haven’t looked back since. I can blame my Uncle Joe for this obsession. In 1962, when I was 4, he showed up at our house with his brand new, bright RED, Austin Healey Sprite. WOW…I was hooked.

From the age of 12, I saved my money from numerous after school and summer jobs, so that one day I could buy an MG. When I turned 17 and obtained a drivers license, I had successfully saved enough to buy a brand new 1975 Tundra Green MGB.

I still have that MGB, and over the years my wife Anne and I have had others. 1971 MG Midget, 1973 and 1988 Land Rovers, 1962 Mini Cooper, 1966 MG 1100, 1971 Triumph GT-6 and a 1974.5 MGB-GT to name a few.

My passion for British cars lead to a several year employment stint in the early and mid 80’s with Moss Motors, Start Your Engines (who remembers them?) and Seven Enterprises. I worked mainly on catalogue development, as well as management, purchasing and sales.

Currently, the 1975 MGB shares garage space with a 1974 MGB/GT factory V8 and a 1962 Austin Healey Sprite.

In June 2011 I completed a 6600 mile, 3 week cross country journey in my ’75 MGB as a part of the Rallye to Reno event. I had a blast and experienced no trouble with the car.

Over the past 45 years I have been maintaining, restoring and showing these and other British cars, and I now offer my expertise and passion of British cars to you.

UPDATE April 2020.  I have retired and closed the shop. Thank you for the years of support and I hope you continue to enjoy your British sports car.
