MG TD TF 1500 - Owch! Old TD Video.
|This was posted on another site. Lucky to be alive.|
|This one is nice too:|
Hope the link works...
|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?|
|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???|

I thought it was the sliding front suspension on that Morgan "chirping" along merrily.........8^)
Nick (at home now).
|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^)|
