  • Old member, new Montego

    Hi everyone.

    After years of looking and one failed purchase (guy shook hands on deal then welched on it) I finally bought my dream white 1987 MG Montego Turbo. It’s a New Zealand car imported a few years ago with 149,000 km on the clock with a nice stack of receipts and history. If I can I’ll upload some pictures. This is a major nostalgia hit for me as I drove my mums white MG EFI aged 17 when I passed my test.

    Car can benefit from a bit of use and there are a small number trim and items to source and with a wiper issue which needs more urgent attention (the driver wiper sweeps past the A-pillar, but overall it’s incredibly solid.

    Planning on attending the 13th April pride of long bridge - can I come and park with the club cars if I do?

      Nice to know you've managed to achieve your dream. Look forward to seeing it at some of the shows. There always seems to be a good representation at the North East and Yorkshire shows. Looks nice. I always liked white diamond and with the colour keyed wheels.

        Thanks very much. Looking forward to getting out and about. I’m keen to get hold of some EFI 14” alloys else I’m going to have to run it on the 15” lattices it also came with. Whilst the tyres on the metric wheels are like new, they are of indeterminate age so I need to run it on something newer. Always likes the white dished EFI wheels.
