Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 095341423X, Hardcover)

This book is a car-by-car account of MG models from their foundation in the 1920s through to the 21st century. Some cars have become classics because there were so few. MGs became classics because there were so many. The best known sports cars in the world, MGs were already an institution in the 1930's, the founder Cecil Kimber having set a motor industry example of niche marketing which was followed for the rest of the century and beyond. Rarely the most expensive or the fastest of cars, MGs exemplified the sports two-seater in its purest form. An open MG became an aspiration of the young at heart throughout the world; its name bolstered by a sporting reputation that transcended its outright victories. MGs were class winners, as in the 1933 Mille Miglia; they won epic events on handicap like the 1934 TT, when the great Nuvolari drove the splendid K3. MG's survival in the rough and tumble of the motor industry was testament to a reputation forged when the charismatic Midget of 1929 lit a spark of enthusiasm that never went out.
