Twenty-five years ago in March 1983, the MG Maestro was launched along with the other members of the LM10 model family. This followed the 1982 launch of the MG Metro, the unexpected success of which resulted in the MG version being somewhat hastily added to the Maestro model range.
I had always liked the look of pre-war cars, but did not have the bottle to actually purchase one. I had owned a MGB GT and after that a small VW Golf. When that became life expired I had to find a replacement. (Yes I know that there are a few differences between a Golf and a Y Type but I wanted a change.) I looked at several makes of post war car that were produced with ‘thirties’ styling.

A potted history of the Triple-M Midgets, from the PA to the R Type. MG was very much looking to the future. In March 1934, a new Midget, the P-Type, was introduced.

Indeed, few people were now associating it as a manufacturer of large, well-appointed and relatively costly cars.
