This is my first MG, and I've wanted one since I was a kid. It finally came down to not wanting to regret the things I never did. I figure it's never too late to have a happy childhood.

I'm in southeast Michigan where the winters are long and cold. I tucked Maggie into the garage in November with her hard top and a cloth cover and waited patiently for the thaw.

After weeks of not having her, my mechanic phoned me with the news that the new clutch, throwout bearing, etc. had been installed as well as a new starter and rebuild of the slave cylinder.
