Yes, I think I used to know him too.

Him too!

I can see that Denise has seniority here. Her response arrived before the
original question. <g>

It is time to replace my faithful winter car, a 5-speed Honda Accord.
A few years ago, when a friend was about to test drive a (pre- '93) Prelude,
he suggested I take the wheel first. Well, soon he had to fight me for a
chance to drive it. I really enjoyed driving that car. My subjective
impression was of driving a grown-up version of an MGB (hard to explain).
Cornering in the city was not as much fun as with an MG because of the
variable-asist power steering.

I'm now shopping for a '93 or '94 Prelude but haven't taken one out for a
test drive yet. I'm curious if any MG-enthusiast on this list has exprience
with or an opinion about the late-model 'ludes. Or is there another car I
should consider? Is a Celica worth trying?  BTW, I'm 5'1'" tall (using the
word loosely) and while driving the MG I sometimes have to stretch to reach
the clutch if I'm using the seatbelt. My driving tends to be mostly urban in
winter, winding roads and ocasional interstates in summer (spring/summer is
my mostly MG season unless I need a/c). So, ladies and gentlemen:  What is a
grown-up MGB?
