A SAAB over an MG? On this MG discussion group no less. I would have to vote
for blasphemy.  :)

Actually, I thought the heresy was the other comments on the SAAB. Because
MGs are still a relatively cheap buy (for such a fine automobile), economics
indicate that there are still a surplus of these cars. As more die, the
remainder will increase in value. But no thanks to those of us that keep
them alive forever.

I hope the Lucas demons have not been revived from this thread.
