Of my many visits to Abingdon in the seventies, it always surprised me that many of the men and women who labored at the “Gee,” as the plant was known, didn’t even own a car, never mind an MG. Most of them traveled to and from their modest homes, located in the surrounding rural countryside,…


The Le Mans MGB in Traffic

by the late Graham Robson Before Graham passed away last year he asked what topics I wanted him to write about for Moss Motoring.
