Just received my December '02 issue of Road and Track today...Peter Egan's 
column always brings a smile to my face...but then...there it 
print...on page 58.

"MGs Across the Border".  MGs for sale in......Mexico. In 2003. Six 
dealerships already established...with hopes of up to 20 by the end of the 
year. All thanks to "a trade agreement between Mexico and the European Union 
that favours sales of European cars in that country."

Let's see....they STILL make the original VW bug....thousands of American 
jobs have found their way "south of the border" during the past years 
(ie-Navistar) ...

What gives here? Who saved MGs arse from the '50s through the '80s? Who made 
it possible for Germany to have brand new factories after WWII?

IF this is in fact true....what gives???? Why can't the American public have 
the option to purchase a ZT sedan or the new MGTF?

I'm pissed. The new Nissan 350ZX is looking better and better.
