Here is your first update, a few more suppliers have now been added to the Links page, we have 14 'Y's on Parade (correct at time of postings), details are now available for the Tour of Brittany in September of this year via a link from the Events page.  A report on the Spring Run can also now be found on the Events page too.  We are also working on a "Guide to Buying a Y Type" for Saloon and Tourer models which will be coming soon.  A further montage of photographs from the Spring Run, by Ted Gardner, can be found by clicking here.

If you consider that the site is lacking something, please do not hesitate to email either the webmaster or by clicking here and we will see how we may be able to accommodate your preferences and suggestions.

Finally, we would like to thank you for your kind support so far.  Please continue to remember this is YOUR site, so send in your stuff.  We might not use it all at once, but it will all come out in the end!

Well, here it is: the official website for the MG Car Club Y Type Register.  This site will be under constant development and will change so please keep coming back and seeing what's new.   It, like your Y Type, will be driven by you and you will provide the direction and the content as much as any one - so if it is not changing as much as you'd like, it is up to you to provide the content to us.

We do have some plans in mind already as you will see from the contents bar to the left of this screen.  Some of these are currently available, others are coming soon.  Here is a foretaste of what we plan for each button.

News - this page, what's new on the site, and other titbits.
Monthly Picture - Send us pictures of your Y in interesting locations, under restoration, or other interesting pictures.
Classified Advertisements - Cars and Parts For Sale and Wanted from www.mg-cars.org.uk..
Register your Y Type - The Register is seeking to compile a log of all known Ys whatever the state of restoration.  Is your Y on the register?  If you are in doubt, here is your opportunity to send in the details for it to be checked and added if necessary.
Events - What's happening in the world for you and your Y Type.
Book Review - Reviews of all the major books available on the MG Y Series, together with a précis of the other publications (technical data sheets and other information sheets) available from the MG Car Club Y Type Register (see Regalia).
Hints & Tips - Handy hints for doing tricky jobs - supplied by you.
Bulletin Board - Bulletin Board from www.mg-cars.org.uk.
Register History - A history of the Y Register within the MG Car Club.
"Y" History - A potted history of the Y Type.
Book Review - A review of books and other information sheets available from the Y Register.
"Y"s on parade - A "Rogues' Gallery" of you (and your family) and your Y.
Links - Links to other Y Type related sites.
Contact Us - A list of Names and Addresses of your Committee.

Remember, it is your site, and much of the content will be supplied by you, so please start to send us your stuff.  Without it we will not be able to keep you happy.  We hope you will enjoy this site, and come back again soon to see what's new.

I would just like to place on record, my grateful thanks to Mike Plumstead at mxp.co.uk for hosting the site, to Rik Moncur at internetdesignshop.co.uk who have helped me with some of the more technical points of setting up this site (Rik did the animated .GIF on the Events and Links pages!), and to Gunter Graskampf, for encouragement, inspiration and other tips.  Thanks guys.
