[Mgs] MGB's are sign of expensive lifestyle!

Exactly, and how many people have two or three F150s parked behind the shed 
ran when parked as it were.

FWIW  I have three MGBs  one a shell stripped for parts, one for future
rebuild, and one to piddle with and drive when the sun

Barney is not all wrong, but my ears perk up whenever MGB is mentioned in any
context. This one was, well, ironic. With all due
respect to the highly qualified writer of the article, how many people look at
an MGB as emblematic of an expense lifestyle? My
mother-in-law I guess ...

I suggest that Scott sent that with ironic intent, as the MGBs are unlikely to
be the expensive vehicles in the guy's garage.

An example of perceptions, though---I managed condominium associations for
many years. Once, only once, after it was some 20 years
old, I drove my '72 MGB-GT to one of them. Rather quickly, it got back to me
that a Lexus owner complained to the board of directors
that I must be paid too much. Well used MGB $4000. New Lexus $40,000.

Be careful with inferences.  That is not to say the MGBs were
expensive, ony that the guy's lifestyle in general was "excessive",
including a couple of MGBs in the mix with several other vehicles.
