If you're a fan of vintage Japanese cars, be sure to check out Nissan's online heritage site. There are tons of vintage Nissan pics and specs going all the way back to the 1920s. Each featured car or truck has relevant specs and a little "detail" tab that gives some background on that specific car.
The Volkswagen Kombi van reached iconic status, with even a school lunch box fashioned in its image. During those early years, the Volkswagen Microbus morphed into various forms. From a cargo carrier with no windows behind the driver's seat to a windowed passenger van with three rows of seats, the possibilities seemed endless.

A dream for the collector and enthusiast
The 1954 MG TF Roadster featured here is finished in stunning all black over a biscuit interior and beige folding convertible top. This particular example was purchased new in Brussels, Belgium by an American serviceman who brought the car home to the United States after his tour was completed. Reputedly the original owner maintained the car for more than 50 years during which a thorough restoration was performed. Until recently the MG was part of a private collection, where it was lovingly maintained. Today the TF displays only 44,800 kilometers, the equivalent of only 27,837 miles; a number that is believed to be the total mileage this MG has traveled from new. Still powered by its numbers matching engine, this MG TF today presents wonderfully and will certainly bring many years of enjoyment to its future caretaker. We are proud to offer this 1954 MG TF Roadster to the most astute collector or enthusiast who appreciates the legacy and appeal of the classic T-series MG.

HISTORY OF THE MG TF
The last MG to really show the marques heritage, the TF was launched in October 1953. Designed in response to the decrease in sales of the TD, the TF served as the last of the T-series Midget cars before the MGA was launched in the fall of 1955. The TF featured the same frame and drivetrain as the TD, however a slight face-lift was applied to the design. The front fenders were reshaped to incorporate the headlights, taking away the T-series, pre-war appearance. MG also shortened and raked the front grill, which allowed the hood to sit lower and improve aerodynamics. On the inside, individual bucket seats were now standard which helped to give the driver and passenger a sportier feel. The proven XPAG engine was given the Mark II TD treatment with larger carburetors, an increased compression ratio and larger valves, which increased power output to 58hp. The TF’s increased performance combined with the classic MG style today resonates with both collectors and enthusiasts. Just over 9,600 had been built when production ceased in 1955, making the TF a cherished collectible to this day.
