Who do you think you are?

what the heck am i reading. i thought this page was well past slagging off other peoples pride and joys.
the owner of the car mentioned has done more for the MG community then whoever Pheaton is.
as for modifying a car.. well MG did a ****e job on the tf so they need fettling to make them nice. after all they have such a great reputation.

as for his tastefully modified car.. want to see mine?
its a limited edtion Abingdon mgf, that has been saved from the scrappies twice now.
turns more heads then most, and you need some balls to drive it about.. so something the op never would do.

my car is my car

People know me and my car, dont care what you say about the car , and to be honest dont care what you say about me , I dont like the lights but its fun and these cars get to much slating as is , i did it to entertain at silverstone glo show show and at the motor meuseum , the car itself you will not find a better mechanically one sorted that is for sale
My health has took a turn for the worse and as such i need to sell, but that is none of your buisiness , its my families and close friends , but it is not something i would wish on my worse enemy
to the OP go crawl back down your worm hole , or are you stuck to far up your own arse to see its not about the cars its about the friends you make

The clockwork one and only.

actually a massive risk.. Still on original gasket at 110k and plenty of past owners and has been shipped across the globe..

You know what they say, when it gets hgf I'll scrap it. Not worth spending the money on a new head, it will only go again anyway.

3 ring rear lights look far better than the 4 ring, mind you I'm biased to the 3 ring, I have three sets

Is that spoiler functional, or just cosmetic?

I remember this car from FRL this year, and I thought the rear end mods were fantastic, but now its returned to original for selling.
The car was lit up for the FRL run and it was very eye catching and I may do something similar next year for FRL.
Looking at the mods most of them are pretty good to me, and I love the single wiper mod, boot spoiler is different which gives the car its own personality, even if its not to everyone's taste, I do like spoilers and this one is not that bad.
I am having my own car striped soon, but I am not too keen on the offset stripes, but again they give the car is own uniqueness.
You do have to appreciate the time and money that the op has put unto his car and he has really done great work with his engine and subframes and cooling system. If we all looked after our cars this much then there would be a lot more of them still on the road!
I hope he got a good price for it, and still keeps up coming on to the forum!

Ad hominem you may wish to google that

Thanks guys for making it personal, at least I had the decency to slate the car & not the person,

I also stated it's your money to waste however you wish, as far as I know we still live an a pseudo democracy where there is an element of free speech. So you continue to put on your 1970's go faster stripes & your pretend 1990's fluorescent lights, but it's still a pig's ear & not a silk purse in my eyes.

But it wouldn't be good for us all to be the same, some of you have to be wrong

i think maybe you should've just apologised for being so judgemental instead of trying to further justify your snark. the owner of the vehicle in question has even commented, but instead of just acknowledging your thoughtlessness and offering a humble "sorry", you're continuing to back yourself further into a corner.
