About the Author

Don Hayter was educated at Abingdon School, winning a Bennett Scholarship to Pembroke College. With the outbreak of WW2, he decided to take an apprenticeship in aircraft design at the Pressed Steel Company, Cowley, and attending Oxford Technical College, where he attained a Higher National Certificate in Metallurgy and Engineering. Don then worked at various aircraft manufacturers, before moving into the car industry after the war. Having already worked on many cars, including the MG Magnette, he moved to Aston Martin in 1954, working on the design for the DB2/4 and the Lagonda, before moving back to MG's Design & Development department. Promoted to Chief Design & Development Engineer in 1973, Don was responsible for the design of the MGB body, and stayed with MG until the closure of its factory in 1980. Don remains passionately enthusiastic about this iconic car, and still runs one himself today.
