Blew the motor (bad oil pump), replaced it with my old roadster motor, scrapped roadster.
Several alternators went "out".
Suspension was replaced.
Speedometer went "out" at 72K.
Clutch failed at 114K.
Suspension failed at 114K.
Electrics failed at 114K.
I wish I still had this car, but I sold it to an MG mechanic when everything failed at once and I was in the middle of a move.
I converted the suspension to tube shocks and put in really stiff truck gas shocks, put on Monza exhaust, mahogany wheel, mahogany door sills on top, lots of other interior goodies, it was white with no rust, and always started!
I drove this car daily, in Chicago, even in -20 degrees. It always started with synthetic oil. I parked it on the street! The I drove it across the Eastern and Southern halves of the U.S., settling in New Orleans. I still drove it daily and lived there for almost a year, drove it to St. Louis for Grad School and continued to drive it daily. Then I moved for Law school and before I left everything broke.
Great handling, I out handled a mid eighties Trans Am and even a '92 Volkswagen GTI in the turns. Not a fast car, but great rewards for the driver who isn't afraid to rev it high, keep it there and take turns just a little too fast. Repairs are so cheap who cares if it breaks?
Great parts availability and easy to work on and/or cheap to pay someone else to get dirty. Plus you get the awesome GT styling which in my opinion is better than the roadster. I could cruise with this thing at 4K plus on the tachometer for hours. Wish I had a V8.
If you're looking at one and the price is right don't hesitate. Prices have for some reason gone up over the last few years. This isn't a Jag or an Austin, it's an MG.
The clubs are cool, too.
