    Call it MGA

    A comprehensive following of 50 years of the history and character of the model from pre-production concepts and prototypes through modern day activities. This includes many stories of special cars and special people and the way the cars have been used (and abused) over the decades. At times the cars were near orphans with low value, so it is a wonder how so many MGAs have survived, and are still with us today. The book pays tribute to the unique character of this particular model and the reasons why people find them so endearing. It covers variants and modified cars, the motorsport efforts of works cars and privateers, a myriad of speed records and competition titles, and distribution of the cars around the world.

    Rule Britannia: When British Sports Cars saved the nation

    At the end of the Second World War, Britain emerged on the brink of financial disaster. After the success of being one of the nations that defeated Hitler, it found itself relying of foreign assistance to survive. A call went out from the new Labour government “Export or Die”. This was taken up by general industry, but more so from the automotive manufacturers who responded by producing some of the best sports cars the world had seen, where demand outstripped supply. MG played its part, together with other well-known marques; A.C. Aston Martin, Austin Healey, Jaguar, Mini Morgan and Triumph.

    This is truly a great book. It’s brilliantly written and the photography by Michael Furman is outstanding, a must-read for those interested in motoring history.
