    This is probably the only place that ever existed where Elvis would get second place billing and be upstaged by a plaid tonneau. 

    Thanks for being here, guys.

    Great picture. I had no idea The King ever appeared in a TD. Would love to know more about that.

    So, looking for more Elvis-TD info I come across this shot of JFK & Jackie on their honeymoon in Acapulco, Mexico, 1953.

    Love these pics (although I hate the plaid tonneau)!

    That Jackie & Jack picture is great! Who knew?

    Next time I vacation, I’ll ask Hertz if I can rent a TD!

    If you own a TDr and are not in the Registry, please go to and register (you need to copy and paste the link)



    If they have one you can rent, take a black and white photo to make it look like it was back in the 50s. 🙂

    And to think I never knew those cars existed, as common as they seem to be. My excuse is that I was never very knowledgeable in everything ‘automobile‘. Yet still makes me feel like I wasn’t noticing a particular make/model since I know of so many others, including a few of the more obscure varieties such as 1940’s Tucker which I had learned of via TV car/history shows way before this MG TD. Not to mention the kit cars of same.
