Don Summerfield & his '59 MGA

I was 17 years old living in a small dairy community in Western NY when I purchased my 1959 MGA for $1200.00. It very quickly became the town's "chick magnet.” All of the other kids were driving “muscle” cars. It was the only true sports car in the county. I enlisted in the Air Force right out of high school. While in basic training, my older brother totaled my MG. When I was stationed in England, I had a 1971 MGB for a daily driver. I had to sell it when I returned to the States. Now that I am 67 years old, I have purchased a 1967 MGB with overdrive that I am restoring. I can’t wait to relive the fun that I had driving and owning an MG. The process is taking a bit of time and lots of money but it is well worth it. I love driving this car. My grandson, who is 17 years old, has already put "Dibs" on it for when I am gone. The MG bug is in my family’s blood.
