Post subject:  MGF with mot £300

Thought I would offer it here, because I don't want to deal with the outside world.

MGF 1800cc roadster. Great fun little car to drive, I already have a Rover Tomcat for weekends though.
I bought it when I had a long commute, but now I cycle to work it just sits there doing nothing.

It has a fair history file, doesn't use any oil or water.
It is tatty, but its a great car to have fun with and not worry about leaving places.
Roof and rear window in reasonable condition.

Open to offers, even a bike swap etc considered.

You dont drive a Rover 'Tomcat' - they dont exist nor have they ever existed. You drive a Honda based Rover 200 Coupe.

One of the silliest internet myths in automotive history! :wink:

If I had the space I'd say yes but unless you want to swap it for some Spds... :mrgreen:

Very tempting at the price - am in the market for a fun, cheap car... If you were nearer I'd definitely come have a look.

I might get an insurance quote and have a think about it...

Is it very rusty? :D

I'm fairly easy to get to from London, I'm 5 mins from A14, and under 15 mins from A1.

The front wings have some rust, but its not sharp etc so will be ok for a while (wings are bolt on so easy to replace)

Its cheap and to be fair, a lot more fun than I thought it would be.

Yep, probably worth the trip, just not sure I'm likely to be able to make it anytime soon... I've sent you a PM anyway...

Just thought I'd say that I've now found something else more local. So I'm out... but have a bump on me.

This is a bargain and someone ought to get it bought!

Hi James

Will have to withdraw my interest, road tax was almost as much as the price of the car.
Got used to paying thirty quid a year, insurance wasn't bad though, expected more.

Shame, wife was all for it, we had a MG Midget years ago and think she fancied a little sports car again.

Cheers
Rich

Sorry I have only just seen your posts. No worries.
I'm in no rush to get rid, its not really worth selling at this price to be honest. Its a great fun little thing. There is just only a certain amount of 'spare' cars you need.

I'm going for a drive in the rain today (with the roof down of course)
