I drove a "B" a few times, it belonged to a friend. Compared to my frog-eyed Austin Healey Sprite, the MG seemed huge, and the steering was unexpectedly stiff.
Yes, the steering was surprisingly stiff, and heavy! I learned to drive, and passed my test, in a MGB GT. It had a "turbo boost" switch, not unlike the Formula 1 KERS system of today But I didn't get the chance to use it during the test. I have to say most cars since have been a breeze to drive in comparison, and a lot quicker.

couldn't help but notice that the torso's hair is the same color as a sheep's butt in the prior post. What's up with that?

You're sharp Butt hair? Special import

I was going to ask about that blue butt. Is that special dye. Asking because when I was in the UK in 1988, there were some sheep (in the lake district I think it was), a lot of them too, had rather pink/red wool, some bluish pink and when I inquired, I was told it was the Chernobyl Nuclear disaster. I don't think I ate any British lamb that year.

Yes, Chernobyl was bad for British farms in the path of the nuclear clouds. Fingers crossed for Fukushima. The blue dye is used by farmers for ID, and apparently also this, quoting from the internet, nothing to do with me
"The Ram has a container of dye just below his neck, when he mounts one of the yews some of the dye is left on her back [so the farmer knows who has been...] Some women have suggested this practice should be introduced to keep track of their husbands mating activities".

Wow, great timing, Amy! What sort of event is this? It's funny how unimpressed the people in the background look.

V is for Vizsla. Crazy dogs...

A for AUTOMOBILE. Why it is called a trunk, at least in the US.
