Sorry for the late reply (had to pop out...) as far as I'm concerned Martin's comprehensive answer is excellent, ...... however I didn't specify which make of car it first appeared .... and therefore our Cumbrian administrator is correct IMO ...

Well done David (and nice pic too!)

over to you sir ...

Ok, feel free to delete this one if David pops in, but a quick question.

The Ewings were famous in the Dallas soap opera, but can you link the Ewing name to a well known MG enthusiast and MGCC official in the Southern Hemisphere?

I was thinking the link was MGF with dim headlamps and a boiling engine but is it this?

:lol: Good try Martin and an interesting answer, it is, however, far simpler though.

Like the old catch phrase show host said 'Say what you see' :broon:
