    What does this car say about you?

    I think it shows that I care for the great British heritage in motoring that a car like this carries on.

    What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?

    My wife thinks I am nuts! She hates it (but then she had great difficulty getting out of it). Friends think it is good, but they may be just saying that.

    Would you buy this car again and why?

    At this price, of course I would!

    What are you likely to buy next?

    I would love to get my hands on a MGTF Stepspeed, but good ones are a bit too expensive for my pocket - at the moment.

  • Driving it

    What's it like to drive?

    Great fun. Puts a smile on my face every time I climb into it. Steering is light and responsive; gear change is as smooth a a Winchester rifle.

    What's it like to park?

    Easy. Reversing can be a little difficult due to the back window needing a replacement (I have this to sort out asap).

  • Living with it

    Have you had any problems with the car?

    Nothing (yet). It passed the MOT with only few advisories, which I am working on.

    What's most practical about your car?

    Nothing! With such a small boot, it is really only good for picnics and running down to the local shop for a few items. Possibly a bird-puller, but at my age even this is impossible!

    Favourite gadget, option or accessory?

    It has to be the automatic soft-top. Also came with a matching hardtop (with a heated rear window - great for the winter.
