Today I went on an organised tour of the Longbridge plant...
Saw bodies being welded up and assembled, then to another part of plant to see bare shells turned into shiny new MGs and Rovers :)

Tour

Very good Kelvin, I know Jerry would love to have gone.

We went out in the afternoon looking at none MGR's, but in the Trophy with the hood down. Jerry has decided to get a track day car, if he can find something.

sad - sad - sad - sad - sad - sad

1000th post. My God, I am sad. Time to go and give the car a blast. See ya later in the day!

Just a few questions:

Did you enjoy yourself then Kelvin?
What's the "Visitor Centre" like?
Did you see anything of the forthcoming RWD ZT's?
Who organised the tour?
Manage to walk out of the factory with a "V8?'

Yes I did enjoy, its my 3rd factory visit!
Visitors centre is nothing special, jut like a large dealer showroom.
A few cars on display which included a ZR Rally Car complete with hot wheels decals etc.
Not RWD ZTs and no info forthcoming!
The tour was organised thru the FWD register of the MG Car Club!! Upto 25 on a tour if you can get a tour as officailly they dont do them, where as they were a regular feature in the *** days!

No sign of V8 anywhere, sorry Jerry
