In producing MGB Experience and Porsche 911 Experience, Lindsay Porter has hit upon an interesting way of producing yet another marque book, but in video form.
A feasibility study was carried out as early as 1983 on DIY videos, but that particular project never got off the ground.
During the ensuing six years, which saw a great increase in video machines, Porter’s interest shifted from DIY to providing an all-round view of specific models of classic cars, with motor sport, model development, owners’ views, restoration and DIY forming the backbone to each title.
As the owner of an MGB about to undertake a restoration to bring it into race trim, I found the MGB Experience particularly useful, but so was the Porsche 911 Experience, even though I am one of those who stand and gawp rather than have the means to acquire. There are more releases in the pipeline including the E-type Jaguar Experience and Racing MGBs. Available from PP Video Productions, the Storehouse, Little Hereford Street, Bromyard, Herefordshire HR7 4DE, they provide a good hour’s entertainment at £14.95 which you can sit through time and again.
