Broke down twice, basically not used to manual choke so I flooded the carbs! Otherwise just your average 21 year old car.

General Comments:

For all of you who thought motoring was about userchooser options, may I recommend a blast in an MG.

OK they're crude and noisy, but they restore your sense of fun and enjoyment of real motoring!

Wait till you meet another MGB GT coming the other way, you'll wave and feel a kindred spirit with a complete stranger, try that in a BMW.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
