I am open for viewings and am on a farm with plenty of outdoor space. I’m parking cars outside for viewings and have medical inspection gloves for customers to wear. I will remain at a safe distance. Keep safe and hope to meet you soon.

Celebrating 38 years as an MG Specialist 

Mike Authers was brought up in Abingdon and vividly remembers as a small child watching new MG Midgets being put through their road tests. Also seeing the export models being driven through the town to the railway station and loaded onto the waiting trains bound for the docks. 

The Abingdon factory assembled MG’s from 1929 to its closure in 1979 plus Austin Healeys and a few other BMC marques. Although too young to work at the factory Mike did belong to the MG factory sports club.

Mike trained to be a chartered accountant in Abingdon but his love of cars finally took over and in 1982 he gave up this reliable and prosperous profession to concentrate on restoring and selling MG sports cars.

Over the last few years Mike has concentrated solely on MkI, II and III MG Midgets and Sprites.

Puts a smile on my face every time I go into the garage, is a joy to drive and rarely fails to produce stories of happy memories from the people who stop to chat and admire.

What amazes me about the car is I do not hold back at all on the track and it just goes on regardless. I have had great fun in the car and next year am planning some more 'full throttle' challenges.

have had a wonderful time with it

No major problems just the usual fiddling and fixing which is what it is all about. Really, really pleased

I had a good trip home on Saturday and by the time we got to Henley the rain had stopped so it was completely dry when I got back and put it in the garage

It passed without any problems the tough Swiss MOT, which says everything about the quality of Mike’s cars.

Hi Mike, Took it out for a run and to lunch today- far better than any exotica and fabulous! The best fun car out there and 70mph feels like riding in a ‘spaceship’

…frankly we are addicted

A lot of people are very interested in it and seem to smile a lot - as we do.
