How to get warm inside

mg-va-lago-maggiore-1In our part of the world it’s cold, bitterly cold and the freezing Dutch are already thinking of the world-famous Elfstedentocht. To get a bit warmer, we thought to show this nice -almost sunny- pre-war spot at the Lago Maggiore. But wait, there’s more to this picture than first meets the eye. Zoom in to the cars on the left. Looks like someone is having a spot of trouble. We think the reluctant starter is an MG VA Drop Head Coupe. They were quite heavy, so the two men pushing the MG will get even hotter!
