I have updated the photograph of my car on Ys on Parade
Elliott Sopkin and
YT 4161 to Ys
Elliott's YT is interestingly only the third EXL (Export Left
Hand Drive) YT on the website to date. It also meets up with its
sister car YT 4162 belonging to Eddie Jenner (which is currently located in
Hampshire UK) to make yet another pairing.
has sent in a photograph of his "spare" chassis for
0651 for Ys on Parade. Although the
chassis may well be scrapped soon (unless you come forward and take it from
David - it is free to collection, see the current thread on the
Bulletin Board), it is, nonetheless still a Y - and we want a photograph of
links on the Links Page under Other Webpages and
Personal Homepages for you, plus a new Technical
welcome Joel Cristea and YT 3110 to
Ys on Parade. YT 3110 now makes
another "pair" with its sister car YT 3111. Joel's car is also another new
car to the Register too!
another new wedding photograph for you today on Ys at
Weddings, this time featuring 4 Ys at the same wedding! Another first
is that, besides showing three Ys that are not yet on the Parade (although we
hope they will presently be!) is that the picture shows a YB in Australia!
Is this the only one? If you have a YB in Australia we'd love to hear from
John Edwards has also discovered that the MG YT features on a
video which we have added to the Book Review
(because we do not have a video page - yet) and also on the
three new wedding photographs for you today on Ys at
Weddings. We also have a new picture from Ken Cowan of
Y 6326 in Ys on Parade.
We have also been asked to advise you that the MG T Register
have a video of George and Peter Edney stripping and rebuilding an XPAG engine.
Please email the T Register for more details

article on the Sporting Heritage of YT 4265.
ago, Aldemir Humberto from Brazil
wrote to us with details of his MG Y Hot Rod car, we have now had his
contribution translated from Portuguese-Brazilian into
English, and bring you a new page on Interesting Ys.
Futhermore, back in August 2003, Ken Jones sent in a picture of a Y Type taken
in Exford village green during the late 1940s and posed the question of what
happened to that car - we now can bring you an update on that car on the same
page as we bring you two MG Y Type hot rods! (Warning: these pages may
not be suitable for tender purists!)
pack away the Christmas decorations now for another year, so seeing as I was
updating the website front page, I thought I'd post a new link to the
Links page to motorbase.com's website where they have 9
pictures of Ys and YTs - some "borrowed" from our website, and some not - so
who's Ys are they - mine is the Red over Black YA (now resprayed!). If you
know, perhaps you can let us know in case there are some more Ys out there to
get onto the Parade! Hope you all had a good festive season and have a
prosperous New Year.
Ardill from Australia has sent in an updated photograph of
YT 4265 for Ys on Parade
as the car nears completion of its restoration. Stunning and well done
David, thank you!

month's Picture of the Month is of new owner
Tim Tavani and his Y Type, both of whom I had the pleasure of meeting when
recently in Arizona USA. Tim rescued the car from a yard downtown.
Had he not, the car would have been winched on to the roof of the garage as an
advertisement as the garage is very close to the Phoenix airport freeway.
