  Interesting that you spotted that billboard. In Bridgeport, there is a
dapper gentleman in an MGA on a billboard driving, one assumes, to
Norwalk Hospital to visit someone. Norwalk Hospital put up the billboard.

  I heard today a radio advert for AutoZone on a Hartford CT station. It
goes something like:  "GMC or MGB, we have the parts"  then it goes on to
say that they have batteries for MGBs (and other things). During the ad,
MGB was mentioned at least three times.
