This morning Robert Ades sent me an email with another wonderful picture for
Ys at Weddings. Robert sent the picture in with
the comment "At the risk of over doing it ..." - all I can say is there is never
any risk of that Robert, or any one else. This is your website for your
input: now, with over 50 visitors a day on a regular basis wanting to look at Ys
and find out about them I do not see any dangers from overdosing on your
favourite MG model, so enjoY!

And there was I, expecting a quiet April - thank you to all the contributors,
especially to those filing new cars for Ys on Parade and for everyone filing
reports. It was also a mega month for site visitors with over 2,180
visitors in the month!
Following the terrifying Picture of the Month last month, probably equalling it
for a white knuckle ride is this month's
Picture of the Month: it is Saul Duck with his YT on the hill climb at the
recent MG day at Brooklands.
We also begin the month with yet another Y joining the throng of
Ys on Parade, please welcome Chris Backlund and
Y 6918. We have had some pretty exotic
locations for cars in Ys on Parade but Red Square
This month's first Reprinted Article
is from the Australian Classic Car Magazine, and is on the MG Y Tourer.
Although we are moving now into more current articles, I still have a few old
original articles from my library to bring you so if you hanker after something
older don't worry, on the other hand, the newer articles are still interesting
for you I hope. When we started this page I did not expect to be able to
have so much, but even at two a month it will be May 2007 before we run out
Head's up for forthcoming events: in the south of the UK we have Ys in Steam on
26 June, and on 10 July in the north of the UK it is the 11th Ripon Old Car
Show. Details of these events can be found on the
Events page. There is also a rumour that Alf Luckman may be thinking
of a Y Type run in the Sydney area of Australia for early 2006 - more details as
they emerge and you'll find them here!
