Charming MG, where your face is few inches from windshield and legs are into engine bay. That's the feeling when you sit in A 1600. That's why this car is so adorable.

Magnificent Machines - The Golden Age of the British Sports Car
Broadcast by the BBC in 2012, showcasing some superb cars via period and modern footage, this is a brilliant programme. Grab a cuppa, sit back and enjoy. Well done to all those involved in this episode.
Timeshift sets its rear view mirror to look back at the golden age of the British sports car. It's the story of how - in the grey austerity of the post-war years - iconic marques like Jaguar, Austin-Healey, MG and Triumph sparked a manufacturing frenzy that helped to democratise speed and glamour.
From the MG Midget, much loved by American GIs, through to the more affordable Austin Healey 'frog-eye' Sprite, and the E-Type Jaguar, seen by many as the ultimate sports car, this is a tale of how, for a brief time, Britain was home to two-seater heaven.
Narrated by Tamsin Greig and featuring contributions from Stirling Moss and Quentin Willson.

MGB The Story of the Best Selling MG Sports Car (50 minutes)
The MGB was the most successful MG sports car ever built, quickly achieving classic status by epitomising the Britishness and winning hearts throughout the world. More than 500,000 were sold between its conception in 1962 and the eventual closure of the famous Abingdon factory, where it was built, in 1980. Masses of archive footage, much of which has never been seen before, is combined with interviews from key people of the era to explore the myths, legends and facts behind its design, production and competition history.
