Cheers for all the reply’s guys. 62S I’m 15 at the time of writing so “getting in and out you know” should be easy enough. I’m going to the Classic Car Show (NEC) on Saturday so I’ll get to have a good nosey round any MG’s that are there.

I know its irritating when people give 'suggestions' but how about a fiat x19. I'm 6'3 and was suprised how much room I had when I sat in one at the NEC classic car show. I think they look superb, especially the older ones.

One of my girlfriends had British Racing Green Sprite.

 

There is not much room in the passenger foot-well.

 

I'll explain more when you are 18.
