It had its own areas of fragility---the 124 tended to be fussy to tune and liked to overheat...but yes, compared to a Fiat 124, the suspension of an MGB was like a dog cart. The TR4 was the worst of the worst.
The MGB was a very strong and simple car, as evidenced by the large number still around.

Good guesses from all - Germans do have a thing for wagons and hatches, and boring silver white and black cars like everyone else. Although the VW Harlequin series was more accepted here than anywhere else. Funny how that works.
I don't know all the cars 100% in that shot either - but the white MB wagon in row 3 is a W202 rather than a W211, and I think the generic white box next to the CLS is a ~1990 Opel Astra. The big black Audi is my rental
Here's a pic I took this evening, from my hotel room balcony:

It's a little blurry but is that a Seat Cupra?

There was a big SEAT product training going on that day. The white cars are the new style Seat Leon, the red one is an Ibiza SC, I think.

Yep, diesel, fairly well equipped. Nice cruiser, albeit a bit of a barge for European city streets.

Audi 4000, probably mid 80s.
One of my dad's friends owned one, what an awful, awful car.
People say the sudden acceleration hysteria nearly killed Audi but those cars were so bad they were simply vulnerable and hard to defend. The safety nuts just picked an easy target in this case.

"People say the sudden acceleration hysteria nearly killed Audi but those cars were so bad they were simply vulnerable and hard to defend. "
Evidence for this includes the numerous 'alias' name changes. For example the 100 became the 5000 became the 100/200 became the A6.
