I have seen more Jaguar E types this week ( 2 )
They are out there.... but you really have to look in my 2000 miles trips i saw 2 Rover 75 and 1 rover 45 ( mint condition) and 4 MGTFs

NC500 ( North Coast 500 miles route) is the way to go, inverness is also nice as Britain's last north city!!
We did the NC500 back in September 2019 in the 75. Was beautiful all the way around and I'd do it again in a heartbeat and set more time aside next time.

Especially fond memories of Sheigra beach - I asked my partner to marry me on the rocks there, she was completely unsuspecting until she turned around from looking out over the water and I was on one knee. Happiest day of my life until my daughter was born just over a year later.

Here's the 75 parked near by on that day:

Mike Brewer is another one that slams doors by anything apart from the door handle. They get a freshly painted car back in his TV shows, and the first thing he does when he sees it is rub his hands over the top.

Default Now Tom has driven the ZT260

Now Tom has driven the ZT260 ... Got to admire this young fella's enthusiasm. He is one of the many youngsters who love MGs and Rovers like my two thirty-something sons and their circle of friends who all mostly run MGs and Rovers including a nice MK1 MG ZT260.

Proof positive that these cars are not simply for the so called "Pipe and Slippers" stereotypical class the likes of the Clarkson wannabees would have you believe.

Nice car...

He is a typical car dealer. It’s a piece of metal that’s all to them, oh and profit.
