It’s said that the love between a man and his car can only be understood by people who have felt the same kind of love with theirs! But what would you call it when a car begins to represent the memories of your loved ones, forever immortalizing itself into your heart?
They say 'Legacies are man-made'. A true testimony of this saying is the story of Adam Sloman, who first experienced an MG with his father and fell in love with MG cars for life. #StoriesOfMG
