MG TD TF 1500 - Owch! Old TD Video.

This was posted on another site. Lucky to be alive.

And of course this:

Nick, still at work....8^)

Yes I saw those as well. Looks like the TC out handles the TD & TF unless there is a better driver at the wheel. Wonder whatever happend to the guy who wrecked the TD?
V.W. Piņa

Indeed, it seems as if the TC holds the road better than the TD. Which shouldn't be possible theoretically... Must be a better driver then (?).
Both perform much better than the Morgan though !!!
All three are nice period films.

Except for the 'bird' sound in the background???

"Bird-sound" ????
I thought it was the sliding front suspension on that Morgan "chirping" along merrily.........8^)

Well, there is even a fourth "birds" film.

This time they are competing against a Jowett Jupiter.
Every time the grey TD (with red upholstery) seems to play an important part. A relative of the camera man ?

It's a bit of guessing but

1. The guy lives in Cyprus (RHD)
2. The video was pointed at a screen onto which was projected the old film.
3. Original film has no sound
4. They have a pet bird in the house. And a TV if you listen carefully enough

And they have been to Famagusta. Which I very much doubt they do now.

I hope that is not "Morgan "chirping".. if it is I will have to take our Pariot to theropy as he is talking to it from the other room! (He flurts a lot with other birds!) Bad enough that he can't figure out why none of the birds around here respond to his "Hell-o-Baby" opening line when he talks to them ...but if he falls in love with a Morgan I fear he may have some serious problems to deal with!
Some of the neighbors think he is "pretty wacked" already with the "screaming" he does on bicycle handlebars and MG rides.
Fall in love with a Morgan ..could end up in a rubber room. (I nearly did!)

Be wary about tailgating any Morgans too close,
for they have a built-in mechanism designed
to squirt the hot contents of oil sump onto
the road surface (aka self-lube pump).

Button is just where I'd rest my clutchfoot
too on top of trans tunnel so it'll be too
tempting to give it a squirt to ward off
any idiots driving too close behind. :-P


Thought they would bite.............8^)
