Sporty MG


I love old convertibles. They always remind me of the old films like when Grace Kelly drove one in "To Catch a Thief." I caught this one near the Farmers Market last weekend.

It's a classic, that's for sure. Perhaps not the most reliable vehicle but what style!

You don't see too many of these on the road anymore. Bring back memories of college days in the 1960s!

Wow, cool face! The classical lights and silver grill are so nice.

Let's take her for a spin, Randy! Under the warm Santa Fe sky, with nothing else to do but search for places to drink coffee and read books. :)

What a wonderful capture Randy!
Normally when a car is parked between two other ones
It is hard to get a decent shot..
Well done!

nice picture

Sharon said...

Great find! It does look like something out of the movies!

Kate said...

Randy, hope you're feeling better today! Seeing this car would give anyone a real lift!! We had an MG once upon a time, but they're not a Minnesota-winter car and get stuck in the slightest amount of snow. I doubt that they'd do much better in a NM snowfall! But, they're still fun to own and drive!

Fantastic old vintage MG
Randy, I like the angle you've taken it, shows off the frontage perfectly, it looks like it's been lovingly cared for.

Yes, you are right Randy, such a photo reminds us of old movies.

It's a real sporty beauty! Maybe it belongs to a current movie star, non?

JM said...

It's always a pleasure to come across one of these vintage beauties.

Michaele said...

Ah yes. I could drive that to the farmers market : )
Did you see my blue door from Thursday's post?
Hope you're feeling better.
