I've never seen an MGF in the flesh, only in magazine photos.  The Mazda
Miata seems more like the proper evolutionary successor to the MGB in both
looks and concept.  The MGF with its ungainly appearance mid-engine seems
more like an updated Fiat 850 or something.

I have driven MGB's for 25 years, and still own one.  Last year I bought a
'91 Miata and it is a fine automobile.  Too bad the British couldn't have
built it.
