they have some MG land speed record Cars at the Motor Museum in Gaydon all I can say is they must have a screw loose as well as an immense lack of fear
I never knew that John . MG totally passed me by as a car Brand , by the Seventies they were almost in their death throes with the Midget , the MGB and the MGBGT . Of course you also had Triumph with the Spitfire , the GT6 and the TR6 which I suppose was the spiritual successor to the big Healey . How did a buyer choose between that lot ? MG just had no identity in my childhood and looking back I cant understand how that was . I think the introduction of the Hot Hatch was the final nail in the coffin for these British sports cars . Quicker and more practical the game had simply moved on .
