    The EX-179
    EX-179 was the legendary MG that broke dozens of land speed records in the 1950s, many of which still stand today. It was built on a modified copy of the MGA prototype (EX-175) chassis. Notable in this picture are (beginning second from left) Terry Mitchell, chassis and suspension engineer; Syd Enever, MG's Chief Designer and father of the MGA; and Alec Hounslow, head of the Competition Department.
