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.
