As many of you will know we bought our Cool Blue edition MG TF after selling our last MGB GT. It was bought as an experiment to see if a more modern classic could pull at our heart strings like the older ones do.
Would we find ourselves popping out to the garage late at night just to check she is ok?
The simple answer so far is no. Whenever we take her out it is a fantastic drive and so much easier than an older one. There is less of the trepidation when putting the key in as to whether she will start. But something is definitely missing.
It’s also something I cannot as yet put my finger on. When we leave her in a car park we still turn back for a glance as we walk away. Every time we clean her It is always the same conversation about how good she looks.
She is obviously faster, safer and more reliable but again something is not quite right.
We will not admit defeat yet though. Maybe she needs a little longer to get under our skin.
I think a good long bonding road trip might be in order!
We will keep you posted.
