An MG in the Marina Towers
Steve Alcantara posted a very interesting photo on the Chicagoland MG Clubís Facebook page. (Steve is one of the very, very early CMGC members and is the designer of the Chicago skyline logo, still in use today)
The photo, in black-and-white, shows a MG, driving down in one of the Marina Towers in Chicago. There are several early sixties American cars backed into the parking places on the first five visible floors. The first open floor above that shows the MG nicely positioned between the pillars. Almost too nice of a shot to be a coincidence, isnít it?
Someone I showed the photo suggested that it was Spike Tracy but his whereabouts, to get confirmation, are unknown.
Does anyone have information on this unique photo? Please send it to me or directly to Greg and Victor, if it is ready to be published in one of the next issues.
Thanks and MGreetings,
