Your mother wouldn't like it!



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)
