MG TD (1950)

AE-59-40  (owned from 24-12-1998 until 08-09-1999) 

 

In 1998 I was at last in the position to acquire a car that I had desired since I saw one for the first time in 1975: an MG-TD. This particular car had been imported from the USA and was in a fair condition. Unfortunately it had wire wheels which I did not prefer, so a set of MGA wheels were bought including an MGA rear axle for better gearing. But that didn't still help enough on the motorway. The modest performance, the cramped interior (for my length) and the extremely small overall size of the car were the reasons that I soon wanted to part with this MG. The rescue came when someone who wanted to sell his Chevrolet Corvette C3 was willing to make a deal...
