I have had the MG since 1979, passed onto me by my brother. It iahs had a history with the family from new; first owned by my uncle’s nephew, who crashed it into a tree. My uncle and his next door neighbour, who I happened to bump into some 20 years later at an MG meet (whilst telling this tale!), rebuilt it, and it eventually found its way to my brother, who had it stored at the bottom of the garden for a couple of years. The thing had practically rusted away by the time I got it, sills flapping in the wind and four bald tyres (those were the days), so I took it off the road and commenced on a rebuild.
