The Puntland State of Somalia brought out this lovely 1963 MG MGB roadster stamp in 2010. Somalia was on a real car craze that year producing stamp sets for classic sports cars from France, Germany, the USA and Italy. This particular United Kingdom set has all your standard cool 60’s marques including Lotus, TVR, Triumph, Morgan, Austin Healey and racing sports car manufacturer Lola. The Ford GT40 is included as well and as the early ones were designed and built in England it’s a good fit although it does look a little out of place.

I wonder what would have happened to automobile companies like MG and Triumph if they had gone down the path of the GT40 look around 1970 rather than producing ancient relics until they went out of business.
