The MG Olympics in 1996

Runners to your marks…get set…bang! GO! Another Olympic year is upon us. Many of us couch potatoes will more than likely be spending more time in front of the tube this summer hoping our men and women can bring home the gold. For the last 15 years or so I have been the owner of several MGs,…
