LEN AND ANN BIGGS

Len and Ann bought their MGC GT 10 years ago to re­place the MGB GT they’d ac­quired a cou­ple of years be­fore. Says Len: ‘I saw the ad­vert in Clas­sic Car Weekly and I could tell it was just what we wanted. I fan­cied up­grad­ing from the B to some­thing a bit more un­usual and a bit perkier, but I didn’t want to lose the B’s prac­ti­cal­ity. The C is so us­able that it’s been to Europe on lots of oc­ca­sions. It can eas­ily swal­low the two of us with our lug­gage. That’s why we do so many tours and events with the MG Own­ers’ Club, which we sup­port en­thu­si­as­ti­cally. Since buy­ing the C I’ve had to have it rewired and the gear­box has had a re­build along with the servo and starter mo­tor. It’s now clocked up 100,000 miles. We can’t fault our C as it’s easy and en­joy­able to drive, parts avail­abil­ity is bril­liant and it’s an ex­cel­lent cruiser for long trips.’
