But, there's no harm in looking.
The MG's peak of popularity in the United States was in the '60s and early '70s, when, in the wake of The Beatles and James Bond, all things British were seen as hip and stylish.
To see a collection of MGs, head over to the Vanderbilt Museum Sunday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. for the MG car show.
For fans of fancier British roadsters, the Vanderbilt is presenting a Jaguar car show on Sept. 13.
And all-American muscle will be on display Oct. 4 when the annual Corvette show rolls onto the Vanderbilt's grounds.
The museum admission of $7 for adults, $6 for seniors 62 and older includes access to the estate grounds and the car shows. For more information, call 631-854-5555.
