The publicity material for the MGB is wonderful - for many of us
it brings back memories of a far less complicated and PC sensitive
age with strap lines like "Your mother wouldn't like it!"
with the usual response "she's not getting it!"
or "Standard equipment on every 1975 MGB. 50 years of
thundering legends" or "Grab your MG years while
you can, sans carrycot, sans mortgage!" or "You
can do it in an MGB" - and some of us did! But the most
memorable line was surely "Some day you will settle down
with a nice sensible girl, a nice sensible house and a nice sensible
family saloon . . . . some day." Come to think of it some
35 years later I still hear that line spoken occasionally as I drive
off in the V8! (15.1.06)
