Letter to Jim Mateja

We Tried...

CMGC President Maynard Hirsch gave Chicago Tribune auto writer Jim Mateja the chance to possibly change his well known opinions on MGs. The following is re-printed from the Sunday, July 26th Chicago Tribune Auto Letters section.

Q:   I believe I know how you feel about MGs. I'd like to offer you an opportunity to find out why MGs have such a loyal following. On Aug. 13 the annual 24-hour Round the Lake Endurance Rally will leave from Grand Rapids, Mich., and I would like you to be my navigator and co-driver.

M.H., Addison

A:   Thanks for the invite but that's the day we've set aside to comb our hair. By the way, how many days does it take for the 24-hour MG rallye?

Comments to Mr. Mateja should be directed to
