The Far East’s first Montego?
Firstly, my compliments on your very informative site. I end up spending hours here, losing myself reading stories and looking at pictures.
I published a column about the MG Maestro on the largest Dutch car forum and that turned into quite an active thread about the Maestro, Montego and the Metro ranges. However, whilst looking at your site recently, I realised that a Taiwanese car, which was sold in the Netherlands for a short time back in 1991 and 1992, had a remarkably familiar look about it.
The Yue Long Feeling was not a success and only a handful of them were sold over here. However, the Yue Long looks very similar to the Montego – the details, of course, differ but, in broad terms, there’s a striking likeness. I don’t know very much about this car, but maybe it would be nice to mention it on your site.
Pictures of it are hard to find, I have only one – and here are the prices as they were in 1992.
1.6 LS €11,050
