Tony Slattery has advised us of a new event for December 2012 for Y Owners down under!

Good news for Windows 8 users - the full range of YZ Publications CD are compatible with pre-fitted CD drives! Order now to receive your copy in time for Christmas! If you, or a loved one are looking for something for the Y Type owner who has almost everything, then browse what is on offer from the other great vendors in the Shopping Mall.

This month's Picture of the Month continues the theme of MG Y Types with aeroplanes this time with a Handley Page Victor V bomber. It was kindly sent in by Michael Nicholson who had at that time sold his MG Y. Michael is still a keen visitor to www.mgytypes.org and often writes to the webmaster! You can take the owner out of the MG Y Type, but you cannot take the MG Y Type out of the owner or so it would seem!

The Reprinted Article comes from Enjoying MG magazine, November 2012. Normally we would wait a month or two before publishing a current reprint, but the MG Owner's Club said that as this article is about the recent highly successful and enjoyable 2012 Brittany Run, it should be reprinted as soon as possible for the wider enjoyment of the MG Y owners. Thank you MG Owners Club!
