The MGA and Z-Magnette in Comics and Cartoons

The MGA and also the MG Magnette was often used in the comics. This page is an ongoing project, so check back regularly.

To start with, a cartoon of how an MGA and MGA-owner should look:
MGA-owner
















Cartoon by "Morgan"; as seen in SAFETY FAST!, January 1986

And how to recognise a fellow MGA owner when separated from the MGA?
Easy... dirty fingernails, a distinct lack of skin on knuckles, roasted feet and lower legs, frostbite on tips of ears and back of neck, depleted bank balance (often combined with lots of earache from partner!) Over developed right leg muscles caused by heavy brake pedal pressure, pronounced flattening of glutus maximus muscles due to lack of seat cushioning. But the biggest giveaway of all is the biggest grin you have ever seen!
 

Fit for a T-shirt
