‘My MG cost me next to noth­ing and I love it’

2002 MG TF 135 Ian Alder­son, Horton

Practical Classics (UK) - - YOUR CARS -

I’ve had my MG TF for nine months now. It’s a bit prim­i­tive but I re­ally en­joy driv­ing it.

It cost me next to noth­ing and I love it. It is one of two I have, and they are both ace.

I do all the me­chan­i­cal work on the car my­self, and on this one I have re­built the front end by fit­ting a new front sub­frame, new steer­ing rack and new brakes. That means the front end is good – but un­for­tu­nately the back end is a bit of a hor­ror story and I am de­bat­ing what to do about it. I have a pow­der-coated rear sub­frame ready to bolt on – I just need to be brave enough to do it!

Ian's TF is in great nick – at the front!
