February 2012 – 2002 MG TF160
I bought car the week after my father passed away to add to my MGB Roadster which he loved. The TF160 came with black wheels and hard top. The previous owner had it since new but had too many points on his licence for speeding!!!! I changed the registration in 2006 to include a reference to MG and my name.

I had my first MG BGT (Teal) in 1976 (1967 model) but then moved to a Triumph Spitfire Mk IV (3 years) and 1500 (6 years) – apologies!!! – before finding a 1979 R/B Pageant Blue MG BGT which I owned for 3 years.
Two children, dogs and a pushchair on the roof-rack pushed us to estate cars until 2000 when I bought a 1979 R/B MG Roadster in Black until I added the MG TF160.
I kept the Roadster for a few months until selling it to chap who converted it to chrome and wire wheels. An article appeared in Enjoying MG.
