ChweeTin Khoo from Singapore is the owner of Y 4754. Recently a Robert Pile who used to own this car contacted me and asked if his car was still around. I was delighted to put him in touch with "CT" and when Robert was in Singapore last month he met up with "CT" and also Mr Rajendran who Robert sold the car to before "CT" bought it! This month'sPicture of the Month is a compilation from that meeting! A great example of the International nature of MG Y ownership in our 70th year!
