Tony Slattery has updated the photograph and details for Y 3936.  Apologies too for the belated appearance of the mid-month Reprinted Article - time ran away with me there was so much else going on this month I forgot.  Still, you can enjoy it over the holidays now!

Willem van der Veer sent me a new link to a page (which has been added to the Links page and the Interesting Ys page) featuring a picture of the Zagato bodied MG Y Type - sadly the site does not have any other information on the car.  This prompted me to write to Zagato to see if they can give us any more information on the special bodied car they did.  Let's hope they get in touch.

Thanks go to Peter Jones (aka Put another Car in my Graveyard fame - see Ys on Film - Music Downloads!) for being eagle eyed in spotting the MG Y saloon in the 1930s fictional film Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom!  Another one for the webmaster to track down copyright permission on for Ys on Film!
