I bought my MGF from Lloyd MG in Carlisle (long-since gone) in October 2004. This one is a Mark II 1.8i model built on 29 June 2000 and first registered on 28 March 2001. MG Rover Group was the last domestically owned mass-production car manufacturer in Britain, and they built 77,271 MGFs at the Longbridge plant in Birmingham between 1995 and 2002 when it was replaced by the TF. There were 410 MGFs produced in pearlescent British Racing Green with a cream and walnut leather interior like mine.

I've made a few subtle improvements over the years, but almost all extras were available as options, so the car still looks pretty original:
I have a few things planned for this winter:
Next year I'd like to fit
