' Think I recall seeing the last of the '79 & '80 models with 5-digit
stickers on 'em - like $13,000 - here at what was the local MG dealer:
"University Motors" of Blacksburg VA.  Apologies to John Twist and the
original guys in London, but "University" in this context refers to
Virginia Tech(the next national champion college football team, and don't
mind me - I've worked there for 22 years... and what's more I have
digressed...).

Back on the subject, my earlier '73 GT still had a window sticker in the
glove box - it's been a few years but I believe it said something in the
$33-3600 ballpark.  I do remember precisely that my brand-new 1959 Morris
Minor 2-door sedan was $1660 at Mark Doyne's Imported Motors in Minneapolis.
