Always been a disaster?

 

Rolls Royce, Bentley, Land Rover, Range Rover, Mini (especially Cooper's), Aston Martin, Jaguar (especially E-type), Jensen, TVR, AC (later Cobra), Austin Healey, McLaren, Morgan, MG ...

 

janclaes47 - just out of curiosity, what is your country of origin, and what are its iconic motor cars.

 

 

The car industry in  my country is not the subject of this thread, British cars and specifically MG is.

 

Also your claim that in the past 100 years UK had a few decent models, most of those which cost double of an average car on the market, doesn't really impress.

 

As another poster already mentioned, even the most expensive luxury brand had rust buckets.

 

In the late eighties ( early nineties) you could buy RR Corniche's imported from the US for next to nothing, but they would have rust holes you can't imagine.

 

If British cars were so good, then why they don't have any cars industry any more?

 

Or read what UK drivers say.

Actually the Austin Allagro was a first rate small car, transverse engine/trans, making the cabin very spacious. The running gear was a tried and tested reliable unit. But with most rides of the era rust was the ploblem...

ok. :coffee1:

True.

Always remember the expression 'it must be a friday afternoon car'

My brother had a 'friday afternoon escort' that would start maybe one morning out of ten.
