Ralph Littlefield, 62, retired and from Kittery in Maine, now owns and drives a 1963 MGB. He said: “I like the fact you can feel it when you drive. If something goes amiss, you know straight away. They are easy to work and they generate smiles from others.
“We call it the British invasion, like when the pop groups such as the Stones, Beatles and the Who came over. It is very much the same generation who drive the cars now.”
