The only cars I drove until my mid 30s were MGs.
My first was a 1960 MGA purchased at 15 years old with money earned via Paper Routes.
Then bought a 109 5 door and it has been Land Rover daily drivers with an occasional drive in an MG ever since.
We currently own:
1947 MG YT
1958 MGZB Varitone Magnette
1961 MK III Magnette
We have a Perkins Prima 2.0 Liter Turbo Diesel out of a MG Maestro that will someday go into the MGB.
If you don't turn your own wrenches, it's time to start.
As Chris mentioned in Post 2, simplicity and reliability if you keep up with the maintenance.
MGBs are so easy to work on you would be happy with your newly found skills!
Uncle "Richard" Douglas has a Land Rover with big wheels that never gets stuck... until he breaks something so it won't go. Uncle Douglas always breaks something. - Anna Crowther at the Conclave 2012 (AKA Carburetor Neck)
