10. When wearing a gatsby while not driving, everyone thinks you're covering your baldness. When you wear it while driving your MG, only 92% of people think that.

9. Having acquired the neat party trick ability to play "Edelweiss" on over-tightened wheel spokes.

8. Can finally refer to the "boot" and "bonnett" without giggling like a schoolgirl.

7. Never have to haggle with service writer over warranty repairs.

6. Don't have to worry about the leaky top- it never starts when the humidity is over 74%.

5. The older the MG and it's owner get, the more they have in common: they both have a little rot in their sills, they're harder to fire up in the morning and their exhaust is alot more noxious than it used to be.

4. Can proudly exclaim that a Hyundai Excel is not the least reliable car they've ever owned. How many former Excel owners can say that?

3. Never met "Lucas", whoever he was, but willing to bet good money that he was dyslexic.

2. Total lack of rustproofing saves weight. In fact, it saves more and more weight as time goes by.

1. The Blessed Virgin appeared in an oil stain on your driveway.
