Haha! I wondered if anyone would pick up on that! It's an MGA Roadster, should never be driven with the top up!

I also noticed that they changed the front sidelights over to the later combined side/indicator type as used on later Minors.

It had the wrong sidelights fitted (and a lot of other wrong parts too). The MGA 1600 and 1600 mkII had the same front indicator/sidelight as the later Minor.
