Funny thing about Bill Wyman is he is a big car collector but never had a licence .The said he would sit in his cars and start them up and pretend he was driving.

It's not the MG of the Queen, it's the one from her daughter Princess Anne. Her husband Prince Phillip had a TC.

Elvis had a MGA, which he also drove in his
movie Blue Hawaii.

Geri Halliwell (Spice Girls) has a red MGB (a present from Formula One team boss Christian Horner),
Sting (the singer not the Wrestler) a MGB GT, Kate Moss a blue Midget,
Sharon Stone a BRG MGB,
James Dean a MG TD.

Lots of photos of famous people on, in & around MGs - for movies, publicity pix and photo shoots.

Near as I can tell, here are some famous folks who actually own (owned) MGs.

What?, no picture of Steve McQueen in his MGTC? Or Denise McCluggage in hers?



Law of Logical Argument - Anything is possible if you don't know what you are talking about.

"Anyone with an intense emotional interest in a subject loses the ability to observe it objectively: You selectively perceive events. You ignore data and facts that disagree with your main philosophy. Even your memory works to fool you, as you selectively retain what you believe in, and subtly mask any memories that might conflict."

Actually, it's the drummer Charlie Watts who is the eccentric with the car collection and no license.
