Tony: I’ve had 10 MGFS and owned this one for 18 months. It’s a rare spe­cial edi­tion, one of only 99 made in this colour. It’s the one I wanted and I waited and waited un­til the right one came up. I got rid of a TF 160 for this car… and it is ut­terly fan­tas­tic. I run the MGF and TF En­thu­si­asts’ Group on Face­book so I am a bit bi­ased.

Russ: My MGF Tro­phy has got just 50,000 miles on the clock and has had five own­ers in that time. But it is mine for keeps now. I aim to be the sixth and fi­nal owner. I had a TF be­fore this but when I saw this one, in all its eye-pop­ping yel­low glory, I thought, 'that will do for my mid-life cri­sis!'

Tony and Russ en­joy reg­u­lar road runs in their MGS.
