First MGF already rehomed as race car.

I seriously wasn't planning on winning this one. If anyone is interested then let me know will spend monies on rover and donation to Dave numbers pot.

If not then will be planning a collection Fred.

The mechanic I use has a VVC drivetrain cut out of a rotten MGF sat on the floor of his workshop , I really like the idea of it in a MG Metro but I don't have the skills to do it or the funds to buy one and get him to do it

On the upside I don't have a MGF either

ah shure ye were hopin big style

 

Like most, I was and I wasn't in fairly equal measure!

Pros:

  • nearly-free car
  • omgsportscar floppytop gigglz
  • kollekshun fred japes
  • do quite like that colour

Cons:

  • MGF
  • getting the bastard back to Belfast from Cumbria (not the very worst, I'll grant you)
  • MGF
  • MrsDC despises these things with a hearty passion now rarely seen since Eamonn Holmes became less ubiquitous on the nation's screens
  • MGF
  • General assumption by friends, family and neighbours that I've embarked on a slightly premature mid-life crisis
  • MGF
  • Harder to shift coming into the colder months
  • MGF
  • I've already spent a load of time and effort on one of these automotive horrors before, to no good end
  • MGF.

Oh yeah - and it's an MGF.

Still - all somewhat academic now! I'm vastly relieved and slightly disappointed simultaneously. Couldn't have happened to a nicer Moog.

Anyway, I should have known not to break the Autoshite Roffle-monger's cardinal rule - only enter roffles for cars you can feasibly sleep in, should your win displease Domestic Management.

Hairnet didn't win it - just informed me of the delight that I had!

Collection scheduled for this weekend. Will be interesting to see how it handles compared to the mx5.

Plan is to sell it on straight away (assuming I don't fall in love with it and replace the mx5) - the money will be used for the Rover (got to pay for my mistake somehow)
