Rare in the USA: MG Sports Sedan

The highly informative AROnline blog is a daily read for me now that they've upped sticks and moved their site to a new host and new blog format. Keith Adams and the crew add new content almost every day. 

One recent series of articles running there deal with the highly successful 1100/1300 series of saloon cars. These "bigger on the inside than on the outside" cars were an extension of Alex Issigonis' groundbreaking Mini design. They were larger - some models with four doors - and they had the innovative Moulton hydrolastic liquid suspension

AROnline is running a series of articles about the various iterations of the 1100/1300 including a profile of the many countries where they were built. Naturally, the one that caught my eye was the one treating the MG (and Austin) version sold in North America. It's certainly worth your time to check it out.
