Big shoutout to Vid6639 for shooting these pictures & his coverage of the Auto Expo. Thanks for sharing, man!

The name MG always brings images of old British sports car to one's mind. Sure enough, MG Motor has displayed a couple of MGAs at its pavilion.

MG's display & size is like that of a large manufacturer (even though it has 1 primary product on sale). And there's a reason for that = the company has smartly used the Auto Expo for brand building at a crucial stage of its life. Just look at some of the snazzy cars, futuristic concepts and classic MGs on display. Mission accomplished, I say.
