TD25404 (MTX 279) John Bastin writes from France:

“In 1964 my wife and I went on our honeymoon in the MG, driving down through France into Italy, then back over the Alps into Switzerland, then Germany and back home.

We were camping, and it was our first visit to France, and the first time‌ driving on the Continent, so was quite an experience as you can imagine. In those days not a lot of people drove abroad, but nowadays it’s quite normal.

I’m informed the vehicle is on the road (i.e. not SORN’d) and would be interested to learn what it’s been doing since my ownership.

I now live in France and often think about my first trip here. My current car is a Porsche 944 cabriolet (28 years old) so I’m still enjoying a soft-top”.
