Club Members’ Stories

The MG Car Club is the marque of friendship. As a Club, we love nothing more than to publish our members’ stories and adventures in their MGs.

From one of our many Holidays in England, our Magnette ZB Varitone 1957, took us back in time, to “The Hearthbeat Country” in North Yorkshire (Goathland). Of course without problems. It has been very faithful to us. We still enjoy driving it.

This is my MG3, affectionately known as ‘Marnie’, parked on top of a hill in the beautiful North Yorkshire Moors. I love going out for drives in this area and in my MG. Taken by myself, this picture really emphasises what I love doing in my MG3, going for drives and enjoying it!


David Hewett

This is Titch. She is the 35th MGB GT Jubilee off the production line, and she wears plaque number 004. I took this picture outside of my friends unit just after he had painted the wheels the correct colours.

The photo is from our yard in the village Vollerup situated in the south of Denmark. It shows some of the cars and MG Car Club members visiting us at one of the club’s monthly meets.

My MGA “THE WHITE LADY” just arrived back in Norwich, September 2015, after the MGA Register’s superb 60th Anniversary tour, Land’s End to John o’Groats organised by Stuart Mumby. Owned since 1975 the MGA was off the road for 26 years until a major mechanical refurbishment by Bob West in 2015. The car has not been painted since 1984, the body never removed from the chassis. Scottish heather still adorns the radiator!

The photograph was taken in June 2018 by myself whilst on holiday in Scotland. We (my wife Jo & I) had travelled from Somerset to drive the North Coast 500 and had just driven along Loch Ness and were heading towards Fort Augustus when I took this photo. The weather for the entire holiday was glorious sunshine and we drove the complete holiday (just under 2000 miles) with the roof down.

Arriving at MGB 50 at Blenheim Palace, with a group of JULE members cars, before the heavy rain, taken by the Professional photographer on duty. A great day with hundreds of MG cars there, looking forward to MGB 60

David Butler

This is my TD Special, pictured at Gurston Down hillclimb in June 2010. It won the Club’s speed championship southern series in 2011. Not so active recently, but during the lockdown I’m taking the opportunity to rebuild it’s engine.

Tom Graham

In the early 70’s my first car was an MG Midget (plastic sliding windows!) followed by a ‘66 MGB Roadster. A very happy marriage followed but the roadster went. In 2003 we bought the MGB in the photo. We bought the first series MG3, and now the other MGs complete the photo.

The photo of our MGA was taken in Marysville, Victoria, Australia, in 2017. Yani and I are in the car, which I have owned for 45 years. The MGA was shipped to Adelaide for the Australian MG Car Clubs’ National Meeting, after which we drove the Great Ocean Road to Melbourne and eventually back to Adelaide, a lifetime’s experience and meeting wonderful MG Aussies!
