Was the car really that terrible, the owner couldn't bring himself to ever drive the thing anywhere? :?

I had a very early mk2 in champagne gold with world of brown interior with 27k on the clock. The single previous owner was a good friend of mine and he had done a few little tweaks like a VDP steering wheel, turbo lattice wheels, colour coded bumpers and a colour coded MG rear spoiler.
Cracking little cars around town and would do lairy 4 wheel powerslides when pushed.
Unfortunately it was continually being vandalised and had several attempts on it to steal it but the alarm always saved it. I did once catch someone trying to pick the lock in Bangor Tesco's too...

This looks like a lovely little example. They do like to rust, though, much like XJ40's. Front wings and around the petrol cap is the favourite. If I had another triple M car it'd have to be a maestro turbo. Now they are seriously quick cars which will give an XJR a run for it's money with a few tweaks.

150bhp in standard tune for an MG Maestro I think? Loads of turbo lag though!

Sounds like you will be buying then?
I find it hard to get excited about a car like this, but I can see the appeal if you have sentimental value from your youth.

No, I'll not be going for this one. I've been there and done that so to speak? I am happy to try anything once, though. It's very easy to get stuck in the mentality of only liking one type of car. Most of the things I've owned have been long out of production in my lifetime. I like to experience different things and make up my own mind about what they are like. I've daily driven everything from a '56 ford pop to a '96 Discovery via Morris marina's, Porsche 911's, Triumphs, MG's, reliant rialto's all sorts.

I turn 30 next year and I've been through almost 70 cars. Lifes too short not to experience as much as you can IMHO!
