As many of you may be aware, respected automotive engineer Ian Pogson until a few months back, has been the public face of MG Motor in the UK, China and to the British dealer network. His seemingly tireless enthusiasm for all things BLARG is well regarded and despite moving on to pastures new with Jaguar Land Rover, his driveway still consists of a good sprinkling of MG product that includes a brace of MG3, his TF and the above ZT-T.
After giving in to his wife’s desire for a used Land Rover Evoque, his long serving MG ZT-T +120 (1.8) has become surplus to requirements. I was in fact offered this vehicle recently and was tempted, but my very own “she who must be obeyed” ordered me to earmark the money towards a holiday. The vehicle in question is a 2003 (53) car in trophy blue and has also been treated to the uprated MLS head gasket in the not to distant past. Fitted with a manual five speed gearbox and showing 86,000 miles, its being offered on the open market for the very reasonable sum of £500.
Ian tells me it will come with a full MOT upon collection and will even throw in a spare set of hair pin type 18 inch alloys and tyres for good measure. Though he is keen to say the car may not win any concourse trophies, its in an honest and tidy condition and he’s also kept thorough notes regarding the servicing and mechanical work undertaken during his ownership. There are one or two minor dinks and blemishes but the car is very good for the £500 asking price – and I can personally vouch for that.
