Safety Fast! celebrates front covers through the ages

20th December 2019

The next issue of your MG Car Club Magazine, Safety Fast! will be arriving with members this week. 2020 sees the MG Car Club celebrating our 90th anniversary – amazing! So, to celebrate, we’re tracing our roots right back to the early 1930s and paying tribute to magazines of old by re-running our front cover designs from “through the ages”.

How it all began

The front cover of the January 2020 issue is based on our very first publication, ‘The MaGazine’. It was first issued in May 1933 as a bi-monthly publication. This was a glossy, A4 magazine designed to not only interest MG fans, but also motoring enthusiasts in general. The editor was Alan Hess who ‘conducted’ it from The Strand, London and it was issued by The MG Car Company. The MG Car Club was given some pages in each issue and it was circulated free to MG Car Club members.

Each issue of Safety Fast! in 2020 will have a different style cover, from The MaGazine, The Sports Car (the MaGazine’s successor), and Safety Fast! which was first published way back, in April 1959. All celebrating different eras of the MG Car Club publications throughout the past 90 years. We are really looking forward to re-living the evolution of MG Car Club Magazines through the ages during 2020!
