Did you believe it? 375 for an MG YT described as excellent throughout is offered in the latest addition to Snippets from the March edition of Motor Sport. Well, it was April 1 after all! The Snippet actually came from the March 1953 edition of Motor Sport. It was too good not to use. Hope you did not mind a bit of levity after the last few heavy months.
