Iceland – best known for stunning glacial landscapes, fermented fish, folk music, chess enthusiasts and harsh arctic weather. It’s not the sort of place you’d imagine finding, or owning a mint MGB GT for example; a car famous for its issues with rust and decay.
Incredibly, the guys at Petrolicious managed to track one down during a recent trip north, capturing footage with Bjartur Gudmundsson – the loving owner and restorer – explaining his passion for the British classic. All topped off with some Icelandic dirt road drifting to prove there’s still plenty of life left in the old girl.
