1947 MG TC

Old MGs are pretty sweet little cars, as their owners would testify. The MG TC is a sportscar from the pre-Independence era, and this particular example was owned by the Nawab of Uttar Pradesh, who used it exactly the way it was meant to be used - as a racing car. But to give you an idea of what racing meant back then, the MG TC hit 100kph in 22-odd seconds, which is well, about enough time for one to fall asleep at the wheel.
