Malcolm Green was born in wartime North London, but in 1951 the family moved to what was then Southern Rhodesia where his father was employed in the tobacco and cigarette business. It was after passing his driving test in 1960, and starting work in Salisbury, that the involvement with MG cars began. As his career in banking lacked appeal, Malcolm began dealing in books, initially on a part-time basis and from 1980, fulltime. Over the last thirty years he has contributed articles on MGs and other British sports cars to magazines such as MG Enthusiast, Enjoying MG and the The Automobile. He has written eight books on MGs.
