Pictured above is one tiny corner of the formerly mammoth Longbridge factory complex that last made MGs. Now owned by SAIC, the site is meant to be undergo extensive repurposing. To help keep it British – and perhaps pick up a little more interest in MG – SAIC has called for help in naming five access roads that will grace the new site.

The only requirement looks to be that the names "reflect the heritage of the MG brand." You have until Friday, February 26 to get your submissions in. A friendly tip, though: you can probably skip names like "Leyland," "Phoenix," and "Do They Still Make Those?"

      I think they should call it, "crappy lot that will make crappy british cars".

      If they're "keep it British," why not name one of the streets after the best thing Britain's ever given us?

      Monty Python Ave.

      Since they used LUCAS Electrics, I would suggest "Prince of Darkness Lane".
