I don't have a garage at the moment. It wouldn't be right to leave it outside to rust in the sea air.

Can't put the GT in the garage as I enjoy looking at it too much and there's no point in housing the S40. I can't leave the garage empty, now can I?

Lexus

There is a pink one in a garden near me that has not moved for years.

Definitely an MG, looks something like a Spitfire.

I'll take a piccy next time I go for my walk, it's foul.

As a kid in the 70s/80s, I always loved old MGs. A few years ago, I bought a 1973 MGB GT. Loved it. Totally different to driving a modern car. Cheap to run, great fun (despite the odd breakdown!). Unfortunately, family expansion meant it had to go.

As they used to say in Scooby Doo "I'd still have it, if it wasn't for those pesky kids".

Still, on the bright side, when I sold the MG, I wanted something practical, but different. I decided a 166 was a good compromise. So I became an Alfa-head via MG.
