    I'm a sucker for punishment.

    Yes - this is my 2nd one, cos it is cheap & fun. The last mass produced British Sports car....

    What are you likely to buy next?

    Something sensible & boring to replace the daily drive, probably a diesel (yawn) will keep the MGF though!

    Easy with the roof down, a bit harder with it up but its a small car so not much hassle really.
