Bill Hirsch Auto Parts also supplies a full range of
fuel tank restoration items - detergent rinse, etch, and final sealant to put
life back into your fuel tank and seal the rust in the tank - not in the fuel
filter or carburettor float bowl.
Fuel Systems on the
Links page has been enhanced to include fuel tank restoration and a link to
Bill's site and email.

For many years a thorn in the MG Y restorer's side has been the non-availability
of the crank handle support bracket. We are
pleased to advise that this situation is now rectified by Norwebb Pty Ltd of
Australia, who have been added to the
Suppliers Links too. Here is a
picture of their crank handle bracket.
Dan direct for pricing.

2006 wall Calendar is
now available for you to download. In preparation I noticed a few errors
had crept into the 2005 calendar.
We hope this didn't inconvenience anyone, but in case you want to, a corrected
version has been updated to the site and this too can be downloaded from the
Older Items section or here.
Anyone who was looking for David Ransome's entry, my
apologies - it has now been added - entry 154.
17 December 2005
We don't often mention the guest book (which you can sign in and
leave your comments on the
Welcome page, or read the entries in there),
but earlier today, David Ransome, former owner/operator of the Y parts business
Whyparts signed in. Having obviously enjoyed his visit he left an update
for those of us who remember him and his business. David, we all wish you
well and thank you for what you did to keep Ys on the road in those days.

Please welcome Richard Knight (with
his third YB - one is clearly NOT enough),
YB 0655 to Ys on Parade.
14 December 2005
former owner of YB 1307, sent in a new
reprinted advertisement for us.
While not advertising an MG Y specifically, there is a good picture of one in
this advert from 1982 for Plastic Padding from Practical Classics April 1982.
A new Hint and Tip has also been
provided by the East Grinstead Small Works Team for converting used Y Saloon
carpet strips into YT ones.
Finally today, the Reprinted
Article is the English translation of the French article posted at the
beginning of December.
In case we do not have another update before "Happy
Holidays and Season's Greetings" from all of the crew here at the MG Y
Register to you all. Safety fast.
13 December 2005
Please welcome Lina and Aldo Crinó,
with YT 4120, and Charles Kay with
YB 1215 to Ys on Parade.

Andrew and Arlene have sent in details for the 12th Ripon Old Car Show.
Having read the reports of such a great time being had in previous years, this
is becoming an event not to miss, and this year Andrew and Arlene are planning
more new and innovative things so a whole weekend of enjoyment lies ahead for
attendees. See Events
7 December 2005
Gary Alpern would like to know what has happened to YB 1307 as he misses it and
would like to buy it back. See the Lost Ys page.

Willem van der Veer started an alternate caption thread on the BBS for the
Picture of the Month
page. I have posted Willem's offerings and some others to the page - visit
the thread on the
BBS and add yours - I will periodically merge them into the page.

December's Picture of the Month
comes from down under and has an Eco-friendly greenness about it. Please
keep sending in your pictures and stories for this feature. You can use a link
on the Picture of the Month page for this.
Also from Australia, Terry Ciantar shares some pictures of his very
original tool kit with us. A permanent access link
has also been added in the Other Items side bar to this page.
We remain in France for this month's Reprinted
Again the English translation will be released in the middle of the month.
With at least two articles in French magazines you would expect that we would
have more than one French car in our Ys on Parade -
where are they, there must be some more out there. If you know of a French
Y Type, please encourage the owner to enter their car.
