As an avid 'get your hands greasy' kinda' guy here....
I'm not sure which category the list would put me in.
(answer/question)  I've gone through 2 BGT's, 2 Midgets,
Four Spits and  a GT6... I have to let the 'question' group know
that 95% of the tools I own/used on those cars fit in one tool box
that's small enough to carry in one hand , and I have no garage. 
I work out in the parking space in front on my townhouse.

As Larry mentioned... compare the complexities and costs
the MG 'technically' is less reliable (less parts/components)
but this also means it's got LESS stuff to go wrong!
Come on...what other car these days can survive on only 4
fuses  :-)
