As I will br travelling on the 15 of this month I am releasing the mid month Reprinted Article a couple of days early. This month's contribution from my library is from the MG Octagon Car Club magazine The Bulletin from May 2015 and is called "The Travels of Doris" - great fun to read article, thank you John Harris and the MGOCC.

One of the things I enjoy the most about running this site for you all is the constantly moving picture I see! Only twenty four hours after completing the new Y/T Lists they become out dated when not only a previously unknown surviving car turns up that changes the mix of Ys to Y/Ts but also adds to the knowledge we have about the number of Y/Ts built!

Today, please welcome Frank Van Duyse with Y/T 4074 to Ys on Parade.
