Well, it didn’t last long. My period of MGF ownership lasted a matter of weeks and, if I’m honest, I’m pretty sad to see the old girl go. Unfortunately, sometimes, space gets in the way – that and the need for some practicality.
However, in those few short weeks, I came to the conclusion that I’d like another open-topped MG. I’m not sure it’d be an MGF, though. After my time with a late model TF 85th Anniversary edition, I think I’d prefer one of those. Mind you, given that that you can pick up one of these babies for under £1000 and you’ll get an awful lot of smiles per mile in the process, I can understand anyone going for an F and having it as a weekend tool.
Anyway, I’ll stick with my SD1 for now – well, that and the Alfa Romeo 156 I’m going to pick up in a couple of weeks or so as a ‘sensible’ long distance hack. The 156’s the same money as the MGF and, as you can see, I do get rather a lot more…
