Usually I associate British sports cars with British Racing Green, but at the May 2009 show for the local car club for vintage British autos that legendary color was actually rather scarce. Red seemed to be the predominant color, but white was well represented as well. This is essentially the hardtop version of the venerable Triumph TR-6 and the counterpart to the MGB-GT from the MG stable. It's essentially the same car other than it's non-moveable top, with the same inline six and rolling stock. You don't see so many of them though. In fact, unless I missed one (very possible) this was the only example of this model at the show.

One of my friends back in HS had a MG. It was white.

We loved that little car. I have a picture of all seven of us sitting/laying on it. It's so cute.

I love the reflection in the chrome, too. Stories within stories.
