Mike Long has also updated the photograph and text for
YB 0279 in Ys on Parade too.

Great news for MG Y Type Restorers!
From £278.40 (£348.00 plus VAT).
New from NTG is this set of four bonnet handles/catches for the MG Y, Y/T and YB. They are superb reproductions of this rare item which has
been out of production since the 1950s. Often times the ones on the car you are restoring will be, at worst locked solid, at best cosmetically
poor where years of neglect has taken its toll on the Mazak and chrome finish. These items are not pot metal reproduction but instead quality
brass cast, chromes and polished. Although not cheap, these will provide the quality finishing touch and it is great to see them available
Adding the DK book yesterday reminded me of another book I obtained a while back Schweizer Automobile that I still had not added to the
Book Review page yet. That has now been remedied.

Normally I would not expect any book on cars that subtitles itself "The definite Visual History of the Automobile" to even mention the MG Y,
however, a new book buy Dorling Kindersley not only includes a reference to the MG Y Saloon, but also the MG Y/T!. See
Book Review for more
A report from Jerry Birkbeck on the 2011 Spring Run has been
added to the Events Page.

The mid-month Reprinted Article has been uploaded early for you to enjoy as I will be in hospital over the next few days and have uncertain
internet access and I do not want you to be kept waiting. It is a reprint of an article from the Motor Trader of 1948.
Additionally, here is another project I am working my way through for you that will hopefully be helpful to MG Y owners. I have not yet decided where to add a permanent link to this, but might do that in the next few days.

Today, please welcome Michael Graf the new owner of

Y/T 3965 to
Ys on Parade.
