I've been reading these messages about MGB prices and the fact
that people store some cars for years on end. I'm so frustrated, I've
got just one thing to say to ANYONE who owns an MG just so that
they can keep it in their garage:

       YOU  ARE  VERY  SAD

Cars are meant to be driven. If they were meant to be ornaments,
they would be 6 inches long so that they would fit on the mantlepiece.

Sorry. But I feel strongly about this.
