1958 MGA

Sitting in the garage
65 years old
Hiding under cover
Keeping out the cold

Now the weather’s warmer
I’ll be taken for a spin
Nothing I like better
Watch my chrome grill grin

Like my current owner
Was born in ‘58
His hair is getting thin and grey
My soft top’s in great shape

I’ve had a good life really
Two hundred thousand miles
Twenty one previous owners
And many many smiles

I’m quite the head turner, even now
I have a certain sheen
Wheels with spokes and classy colour
British Racing Green

Hang on a mo, what’s happening
A wash, blow dry and wax
My bumper’s got a sparkle
He’s even paid the tax

I’m sure he wants to sell me
Trade me in for something new
A new fandangled electric MG
Chinese through and through

I know I’m not so fast these days
Slow and not too nifty
I much prefer the country lanes
At speeds around the fifty

It’s time to smell the roses
A slower pace of life
Hood down, wind in hair
Lose the trouble, strife

Hoping owner 22
Will provide some TLC
Cos I want to make 100
For I’m an old MG

1954 MG TF

The car has been garaged at Otaki all the time I have owned her(20+years).

She is a good “runner” and very original, but has fibreglass mudguards.

She has recently had a new battery and period correct fabric covered main cable.

She starts first time when I use her for weekend jaunts.

I am selling because I don’t have the time or resources to restore her, and I need the garage space.

I am told $45,000.00 is about her worth.
