The last time before this that my wife Kim rode in Maggie was in 1977 when she was 20 – 40 years later and it still brought a smile to her face!

My first grandson Hal witnessed the final stages of the restoration and was a regular in my workshop and the cockpit.

The more recent grandson arrival Felix, also reckoned Maggie to be pretty exciting.

My mother at 96 also enjoyed a ride out and loved it

My restoration came under serious scrutiny by some extremely knowledgable classic car people and thankfully got the thumbs up – two of the group were MG employees at Abingdon, one serving an apprenticeship when MGA’s were still in production.
