Details of the AGM, Spring Run 2004, the second Black Pudding Run and a SteamY DaY have been added to the Events page.  Unlike previous years, the MG Y Type Register will not be producing a printed calendar for 2004.  Please watch the website and Safety Fast for details of events in the UK.  We welcome details of events aimed at Y owners worldwide - please send details of any Y Events you may be organising (world wide) to the webmaster.  After the event, please also send in a report and photographs of the Ys attending too.

Pedro has also now sent us the history of Y 1996 a selection of which has now been added to his entry on  Ys on Parade.  Thank you very much for that Pedro.

In the euphoria of getting a new country on Ys on Parade I completely forgot to upload the mid-month magazine abstract - this has now been remedied for you.

Please welcome Pedro Bento de Castro with Y 1996 to Ys on Parade.  Interesting to note is that although Pedro's car is a Right hand Drive car, he has adapted the fog lamp over to the right hand side of the grille.  It is also great to note that as we move into the 200s of cars, that we welcome another new Country, Portugal, to the international Y Type website.  Pedro, your car looks smashing and we look forward to more Ys from Portugal

Pedro Bento de Castro, a Y owner from Portugal, left a message today on the guestbook having recently found the site and has pledged to send in details of his car soon.  It would be great to have the 201st car from a completely new country Pedro so we all look forward to this ... and not only your car, but those of your fellow Y owners you mentioned too please!  See the guest book for Pedro's entry number 108 in the guestbook.

Please welcome Katherine Moreland with YB 0480 to Ys on Parade.

It seems quite incredible that less than 19 months ago, when we were thinking about launching the site and running a page for displaying our lovely Y Types, we set ourselves the ambitious target of 50 - a target that we have beaten by a massive 300%!  This is a huge credit to you and to your love and dedication to the Model and proves conclusively that the Y Type is no longer a forgettable episode of MG history.  Cinderella really has come to the Ball!  Thank you all so very much for the enjoyment you have given not only to us, but also to our fellow Y owners worldwide.  I guess we now have to look to car 251?  It's your call, and your site!

Please welcome Tim Tavani with Y 6842 to Ys on Parade.  Tim's car is, currently, our youngest YA in America on the site and is also our 199th car on the Parade: the next will be 200!  why not try and make it your car if you have not already sent it in - please?

As a special treat, first suggested by Andrew Adamson in July 2002, we have a new car on Interesting  Ys - a YB pick up, yes pick up, years before the launch of the MG Express vans!

Also please welcome Paul Davies with YB 1262 to Ys on Parade.  Paul is our 198th car on the Parade, only 2 to go to 200!  Keep them coming, target will be 250 soon!!  Thanks, we love it!

Another Picture of the Month harking back to the 2003 Spring Run awaits you with another pair of re-united cars!

Please welcome Mitch Tree with YB 1304 to Ys on Parade.  Mitch is the 197th car on the Parade and we are now only 3 short of an absolutely mind-blowing 200!  This is nearly 4 times our initial hopes of getting 50 cars, so a big "thank you" to everyone again, and a big "come on" to those still sitting in the wings.  If you have a friend with a Y who is not yet on the website, please encourage them to give you the details and a photograph, and file an entry for them too.

We also have a few new links for you on the Links page under Personal web pages at different ends of the spectrum!  Also, on the Links page we have added a Wood Trim restorer and re-veneering service under Coachwork.
