Today, please welcome Danny Klijn with Y 1969 to Ys on Parade. Danny is planning on using the car for banger racing, due to the incomplete nature of the car, but will sell the car to anyone who is interested in buying it as he appreciates the scarce nature of the car. If you are interested in making Danny an offer, please contact the webmaster quickly!

Richard Prior has also added an article to the Jackall page on installing the Jackall actuator seal. Thank you Richard!

This month's Reprinted Article comes from the Swiss publication Sign Poat for January 2017 and is titled "70 jähriges Jubiläum MG Y". Carsten Deuster also had the same article printed in the German magazine MG Kurier in April 2017 so both articles have been added for your pleasure. If you do not speak (or read) German do not dispair - the English translation is coming and meanwhile the pictures are worth looking at anyway too!
