Is it just me, or did this blog used to be funnier? http://takealotofdrugs.blogspot.com/2008/04/questions-most-commonly-asked-of-laskos.html

Here are Ruth and my father by a couple of MG TF roadsters.
In case anyone else was wondering about the difference between an MG TF and an MG TD:
The TF launched in 1953 was a facelifted TD, fitted with the TD Mark II engine, headlights fared into the fenders, a sloping radiator grille, and a new pressurized cooling system along with a simulated external radiator cap.
The 1954 engine, now designated XPEG, was enlarged to 1466 cc by increasing the bore to 72 mm (2.8 in), giving 63 bhp (47 kW) at 5,000 rpm; the car was designated the "TF1500".
Production ended on 4 April 1955 after 9,602 TFs had been manufactured, including two prototypes and 3,400 TF1500s. The TF was superseded by the MGA.
The TF name was reused in 2002 on the mid-engined MG TF sports car.
