Mike, a few years ago a young lady named Carol joined our M.G. car club in
South Australia, at the time she [ the young lady ] was single, and was
accompanied by a girl friend on club runs, the accompanying lady was also
called Carol!! When she was introduced to club members,folks decided that we
had to be able to tell the girls apart, [what with them having twin names]
so they became, and are to this day, Carols Mk1 & Mk2. That reverses the
naming trend just this once! :-) Oh! was single! she married me.

Scotty, who has never given a car a name, Scott.
[If you give your M.G. a name, will it come to you if you call it?]
