I've fond childhood memories of my father and me riding in his sky blue MGB roadster cross country. We probably spent nearly as much time under the car as on the road.
Indeed we'll see whether or not the allure of these lovable little buckets can be recaptured.
BTW, this thread probably doesn't need to be in the politics forum.
After a few posts, it will need to be. This is just more proof of the intertwined economies that China and the US have.
Also, I wouldn't mind a cheap MG roadster.
I happen to have a MGB 1980, I would love to see it born again in the states but having the Chineese do it worrys me. MGB rules
Maybe the Chinese can engineer it so it doesn't break down every other journey.Here's hoping.
My MGB has become very reliable after yanking out the Zenith Stromburg P.O.S. carb and using a weber.
As well as being proof that most British management are a bunch of overpaid idiots too busy lunching to notice their companies going bankrupt
I would agree, just look at what British Leyland did to the company. Destroyed it from within. MG has had some great looking convertibles in my view, beautiful. Its sad as heck they havent been sold in the states since 1980. Still I get a ton of looks whenever I drive that 1980 MGB and its now increasing in value
If done like MiniCooper was done it could be a great success,but Chineese made Mg? That scares me.
I wonder how my avatar feels about this...
The UAW has got to be used to getting the shaft by now...
Its to bad GM & Ford cant seem to pull their heads out of their arses, so its going to take the Chineese to bring us the MG? Look at BMW and MiniCooper but GM & Ford cant see past the next 3 months,so while they want to sell SUVs to dodge the EPA car rules smarter companies are doing something else like Honda,Toyota,Hyundai,etc.
Would that be the drive shaft?
NO dont start that, please my computer cant take it.
I see. You must be the crank shaft.
I had put "(crank) shaft" in initially. I'll have to nominate DHM for that title today as well.
Careful now. You don't want to drive DHM mad...
I think I piston off.
This could spark a fit of rage. He might just hit you over the head with a rod.
I just realized something: pis(s)ton and wankel. Someone in the auto industry has a strange mind
just checking your fool filter.
Can't think of any car puns, but i can say that the car they're likely to build, the MG TF, was a decent roadster before Longbridge went ka-boom. Mechanically getting a little old compared the the Mazda Miata/MX5, but still a lovely looking car, and drove well.
Whhy cant the British run car factories? Triumph, Rover or MG could have been amoungst the brands in the world. But no. Mess up.
At least Brtish Leyland never managed to ruin Jaguar.
Are there any British car manufacturers left?
Thats a beautiful car.
lotus, but they were bought by proton (malaysian). landrover is part of ford now, i believe.
what about morgan? and TVR is still holding on, it seems.
