MG’s Oklahoma deal: not fully OKed 

It takes independent sites to give you the correct . All the hype (reported even at this site) about , or NAC–MG as the company is officially called now, comes from a letter of intent. The Unofficial Austin–Rover Resource’s Keith Adams, along with Ian Robertson, reported:

NAC-MG’s boss, Mr Yue Yang Wie confirmed that the company had major confidence in the MG brand name, and it would be pushing it hard as a global brand, although he firmly stated that the Oklahoma deal had yet to be cemented, and currently amounted to a letter of intent signed by both parties. According to NAC-MG, the Americans had jumped the gun, and the future of the Ardmore site depended on the needs of the business.

   Not only did we not see that in the , we haven’t seen any clarification of the earlier stories after Mr Yu’s press conference. (The different spelling of the NAC boss’s name is merely due to dialectical differences.)
   More of the story is at Keith’s site, which has been fairer and more optimistic than the downbeat, “they will die” tone of most of the . That attitude contributed to MG Rover’s downfall in the first place. And omitting the above statement made by Yu indicates that little has changed among covering MG Rover.
   The Unofficial Austin–Rover Resource’s story contains further news on collaborators and engine development.

Entries from 2006 to the end of 2009 were done on the Blogger service. As of January 1, 2010, this blog has shifted to a Wordpress installation, with the latest posts here.
   With Blogger ceasing to support FTP publishing on May 1, I have decided to turn these older pages in to an archive, so you will no longer be able to enter comments. However, you can comment on entries posted after January 1, 2010.
