All three of my 1100's have four wheels plus a spare plus four extra wheels 
from a car that I parted out.  I can't believe that an MG 1100 could drive 
on the two front wheels without the back dragging unless the five Queens 
Guards had their legs through the rusted out floor and were running along 
with the car.  Send me five Queens Guards and I'll try this.

Did you tape this ad?
