Only a quick observation but why when I wave to other 75 drivers do they look back at me like I may have escaped from the local mental hospital :D.

By the way the Hospital know I'm out :)

When I'm in my B I get the "Wave" from other (real) MGers and also other classic car owners. Did have a B wave at me in my ZT last year.

The modern ones tend not to bother sadly.

Something in the order of 90% of 75 owners have no interest other than as transport, don't frequent these forums and so may well view you as a loony. Keep at it and you'll get a return someday.
I only acknowledge Mk1 ZT's and usually get a wave back. Mk2 drivers give strange looks so I gave up on them.

I can honestly say that I do look at the driver's faces as I drive past and I have yet to actually see one even glance in my direction! So I don't wave, but I would if waved at first!
Although when I used to drive around in my MR2 quite often waves were exchanged!

The cars aren't rare enough yet, for other drivers to realise why your waving! ;)

Must admit I wave too, but no reply.... maybe I should take the straight jacket off :0)
Despite the high cost of living its still proving popular.

I have waved a few times to other 75 / zt owners and got a response :)

But I get the biggest response from MGf owners when out in the MGf :D

RE 'real MGs'

That expression always make me smile and when someone uses it I always ask what they mean by a 'real' MG - most reply something along the lines of 'an MGB or an MGA, not a slightly modifed Austin or Rover rebadged as an MG like a Montego or 25/45/75' They go a little quiet when I point out that the first MG was actually 'just' a modified Morris with an MG badge. . .

Likewise when people say that MG stands for Morris Garages. I generally direct it to my bro who has a very nice MGF 160 although deep down he wants a B. A good colleague at work asks me how the Rover is; I counter by asking him how his JagFord is? X-type.

This months EMG magazine has an article on a 1950's Magnette ZA aka a Wolseley. Gorgeous, for sale too.

Is it a little like saying that the first Spitfire was a seaplane??

Just taken my "real" MG in for investigations on a broken piston ring. Seriously think its a ring gone as compression is down on number 4. Blast just as we were getting settled in to the new place and the weather seemed to be holding too. Oh well least I have my pretend MG lol.

When it's back I'll get some piccies up.

I was in Tunbridge Wells yesterday and spotted a funeral cortège of Mark 2 funeral cars. The undertaker waved back and one out of 3 other 75 drivers in the locality returned the compliment.
