You may be cool rocking up to a car show in your Ferrari but nothing beats arriving in a Spitfire.

I was a-poking around the internet tonight (lusting after something wedge shaped and built in a certain rainy northern town) and came across this. Ridiculous little 49bhp rotary engine and that bonkers french styling - it's dreamy.

This and a Citroen SM, I'd be a happy man.

Citroen M35. A very rare car; built as a prototype for Citroen to test their Wankel engine. Never sold to the public. Body was coach built; there were no production two door fad back Amis.

The village copper where I grew up had an Ami. I think it ended up a pile of rust.

Enough, @Ravers, enough! Can we get back to the MG and the Series II?
Series 2 is currently roofless for the summer.

I need to go and spend a day with the MG and investigate the gearbox issue. It’s currently stuck in 3rd. Could be some thing as simple as a linkage, could be an entire engine out job.

Oh yes, you mentioned the MG gearbox a few weeks ago. Not just the linkage then, something worse?

I haven’t had time to check yet. It’s not at home. The car lives with an elderly aunt about 20 miles away so I need to put a day aside to go up and sort it.
