Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

The fact that I’m hear­ing that MG Mo­tor UK is pre­pared to safe­guard the im­por­tant stuff at Long­bridge is a re­ally good thing. Hav­ing poked around ev­ery cor­ner of that site – both of­fi­cially and unof­fi­cially – I can tell you that there are some amaz­ing rem­nants still there. Her­bert Austin’s of­fice has been pre­served in As­pic in the Round House, while the cars that re­main are fas­ci­nat­ing. There are also lots of parts, and mem­o­ra­bilia that must be pro­tected. What I find dis­ap­point­ing about all of this is that I’m not hear­ing this good news from MG Mo­tor UK di­rectly, and that it has not ac­tu­ally said a word about the fu­ture of the fac­tory, aside from the fact that the Tech­ni­cal and Engi­neer­ing Cen­tre re­mains in place.
