Mg B Most Fun For Your Money — It's a blast to drive. It's sporty Italian design gives it it's great lines, making it a real head turner. Best bang for the buck. You don't know what fun means till you drive an MG B GT. Make sure to buy a chrome bumper version (pre 1974 1/2).

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: FUN

Cons: Weak braking

Most Fun Car I Ever Owned! — Fun to drive, especially with the top down. This car was great when it ran...very finicky to sync carbs and to keep running smoothly. Electrically, TERRIBLE, which amazes me since it is quite damp in England where it is built, yet British Leyland (the company that provides all of the electrics) made connections out of metals that corrode easily in dampness!! This resulted in connections failing and things not working any more!

Pros: Fast, convertible (high coolness factor)

Cons: Always needs work! Hard to keep 4 carbs synched, Electrical system requires constant maintenance.

Mg Bgt — A classic from the 60's to the 80's and a big mistake that it was not updated and build continued. Maybe, it could have been the saviour of British Leyland...

Pros: Beutiful looks, nice balance, easy to repair.

Cons: Small back seat, 2 6-volt batteries.

Cheap To Run, Rock Solid Classic. — When these vehicles were first manufactured, some UK police forces used them for Motorway Patrol! What a great job that must have been :)) Solidly built with a bullet proof mechanicals these cars are fun to drive and fit like a glove. The Roadsters are far more desirable than the GTs. Compared with modern machinery these cars are slow and thirsty.

Pros: Cheap to maintain and fun to drive - the ideal classic car.

Cons: A bit sluggish and thirsty

It Was A Nice Experience To Own It, But I Was Glad To Be Rid Of It. By Ozzie
